    Throwback to when Ben almost perfectly predicted the future of his UFC career.

    Ben is a great character for MMA. He did nothing but shine in his UFC tenure. Every fight had great highlights

    First fight in the UFC: gets knocked out in 15 seconds but Robbie wakes him up with punches.
    Second fight: knocked out in 5 seconds.
    third fight: choked unconscious.

    thanks for the memories!

    This and I find it hilarious that anyone tries to deny that Robbie Lawler slept him with ground and pound. His arm goes limp exactly the same way it went limp when Askren sent him to another planet.

    Thats what i will always give McG props for.... he talked a whole bunch of shit but backed it up for the most part. That’s the most difficult part.

    What's your point? Did Askren not win that fight?

    In the GIF above Askren doesn’t go limp at any point.

    Robbie did though.

    I’m surprised Robbie didn’t get the TKO though.

    I've been an Askren hater from the get go, but i will say one thing about Askren that really surprised me.
    He can handle a loss significantly better than i expected in addition to better than most other fighters as well.
    And i don't mean that as a backhanded dig, the dude legitimately surprised me with how humble and classy he was which is the exact opposite of what i expected.

    I think he did try hard to train in his standup in his fight with Maia-yes it was piss poor, just he's no good at it.
