    Cool little video produced by ESPN with Ben discussing....

    0:00 - final fight in ONE Championship vs Shinya Aoki and UFC Welterweight Division
    2.25 - NCAA Wrestling finals senior year
    4:00 - very first mma fight along with Tyron Woodley and Neil Magny
    5:45 - 2010 USDG Championships

    Can't help but think Ben is a very bad matchup for both Usman and King Colby neither of which are the greatest of strikers. Future welterweight champion right here folks. You heard it here first.

    I thought Aoki was beating his ass until the finish

    Yeah, I thought so too, until they started fighting.

    reminds me of the beating Matt Hammil inflicted on Jones to give him his first defeat.

    That was pure savagery!! Good to see Jones bounce back from such a humiliation!! Doing so well now.

    One day he could face hammil in a rematch. When he's ready.
