I think talent wise he is easily the #2 WW in the world, if not ranking or record wise quite yet.

I would really like to see him in the UFC but doubt it will happen easily, given the Alvarez situation.
Hieron gave him a pretty good fight and he clearly didnt fair well in the UFC. Don't get me wrong, I love Bellator (Michael Chandler is one of my favorite fighters), but it is an incredibly top heavy organization when it comes to there talent level. There are a few really talented guys and then a bunch of no name cannon fodder types. I would love to see how Askren would fair against the top WW's in the world.
