    I think this should be Askrens first UFC fight. Make him fight Shields :eek: We would know where he is grappling wise in the UFC with one fight.

    Honestly I think this is a tough fight for Jake. I'm not one to underestimate Jake either, I picked him to win against Woodley and Maia, but Askren is relentless with his takedowns and I think he gets them and stifles Jake from top position.

    They will both lose any fans they had in the most boring fight ever.

    Pillow fists for both with neither likely subbing the other?

    I try to avoid watching shields and askren fights whenever possible. So I say this is a win win.

    Haha no thanks, if Askren comes over I hope they feed him to a powerful striker with awesome TDD, someone like Ellenburger.

    The same that had Shields vs Maia as the main event (not PPV, obviously).

    Lol at 12 cans. Askren is still largely unproven against the best fighters at WW but just because you don't know who his opponents are doesn't make them cans.

    well then their is the fact that the UFC was clearly trying to feed Shields to Maia IN BRAZIL...

    and Shields was also brought in to lose to Jake

    Cesar Gracie JJ tho

    Askren vs Shields is an absolutely pathetic main event, anyone who thinks that is a possibility is BUGGING

    Would 12 cans make a 12-pack?

    If Askren wants a title shot and he can dominate Shields its his. They both have similar ways of controlling with a top heavy style. Askren will be tested because Shields looked very tough against Maia. Great grappling contest. If one guy dominates either should get a shot. If a close fight by the winner they will have to fight until they dominate to get a shot.
