He does very little work (little GnP and no submission set ups) on the ground and I really hope he stays as far away from the UFC as possible.

Beat someone in impression fashion and then you'll get noticed by the UFC don't call out a respectful fighter at his lowest of times to try to self promote yourself. I really hope Hieron clips this greedy wrestler out cold when he shoots in for his takedown in the first 3 seconds but thats just unlikely hopeful thinking
You're talking about one of the best college wrestlers of all-time. Give him time to develop his striking and submission game. His wrestling is very unorthodox and I'm sure he will turn himself into a top grappler.

Ben Askren would destroy Nate Marquardt.
