    This fight would be fun to watch. Askren would really hype it up too.

    YES PLEASE!

    Arguably the two best grappling talents in MMA going at it with ONE rules, doesn't get any better. It is a karmic win/win, either Paul Harris gets soccer kicked in the head or Askren gets humbled in a big way.

    Askren said on twitter he won't fight him because he doesn't deserve it

    It would be a great matchup for the fans, but a bad one for Askren. He would definitely get the takedowns, but he would not win the standup and the risk of getting caught in a sub is big. He is lucky though, since he can excuse himself away from the fight by claiming he wont fight a "dirty" fighter.

    Sounds fun, Askren most recent fight was a NC due to an eyepoke from Askren.

    if Ben put away palhares convincingly, he gets a decent UFC offer this time. Palhares and Ben are the 2 best WW outside of the UFC

    Sure I'd like to see Askren lay on Palhares and beat the snot out of him for 5 rds but this guy doesn't deserve to fight in a cage or ring. He should be fighting in a prison if you ask me, what he's done is pure criminal and it's completely fukd in every way you think about it.
