This post is hilarious because it implies that Askren's Bellator comp is any worse than the Chris Wilson's, and the Luigi Fiorvanti's that Fitch made his name off of.

Don't get me wrong I like both guys. But Fitch is much more well rounded
Askren fell down in a scramble and momentarily lost position. He then scrambled up 15 seconds later while deep on a single.
Ben Askren has never been taken down in an MMA fight.
Fitch couldn't even get a second of offense in against Demian Maia...who has no wrestling background.
Not to say Fitch is a bad wrestler but he's basically Ben Askren without the talent.
