    Askren would lose a limb. I think Palhares is probably the best guy at 170lbs outside the UFC now. He's the kryptonite for wrestlers who want to LNP for a decision.

    I'd be happy to see it. I need to catch up on Askren fights.

    Big Askren fan. I'll take it. Askren still trains with Lister I believe. We all saw what Dean's preparation with Belcher did to Palhares.

    I don't see how Askren could win this but it would be awesome to see Askren get subbed.

    Hate Palhares, but don't see how he loses to Askren.

    The majority of Palhares's loses were due to being seriously punched upside the head - Ben's standup isn't his strong suit.

    Palhares may have the best ground game in mma, but he may also be the dirtiest fighter as well. Ben would be crazy to accept a fight with him. That's a guaranteed loss, unless he has quietly developed a high level striking game. Which seems unlikely.

    Said what you want about Askren but I doubt the guy is scared to take a fight.

    Palhares by sub. Bad matchup for Ben.

    Trying to keep Palhares down especially for 5 freaking rounds is just a ridiculous strategy. Askren can't win.
