    Both undefeated, both great wrestlers, both 5'10. Only one weight division apart.

    Who would you favor in a 5 round fight?

    I'm not sure how much weight Khabib cuts but if he was fighting anywhere near the 170 mark I would say he takes it.

    It't really not much to do with how good he actually is, it's who he has fought. And who he continues to fight. bottom line, Khabib is swimming in a much deeper talent pool right now, and therefor, in my eyes, has the better pedigree

    Probably Askren, but I'm not sure. There isn't a very big size difference between them. Ben could probably make lightweight.

    Khabib is a great wrestler but Askren is a PHENOM. The dude is unbelievable on the ground.

    People don't say this enough:

    It is a crime that he is wasting his prime in One FC when both the UFC and WSOF have excellent WW competition right now.

    I would love to see him vs. Jake Shields or Paul Harris in WSOF.

    Nobody. Certainly not the fans, nor the PPV buyrate.

    I'm not sure what Askren does can really be considered as "trash talk"

    It is more of a type of whining

    I'd put the farm on Askren at 170lbs.
