I was going to say, let's not act as though Ben is facing anywhere near the talent GSP is. To even compare the two is laughable. I'd be willing to bet 99.5% of this forum hasn't even heard of Ben's last two opponents. And I'm more than positive that GSP would have more finishes UFC title contenders consisted of the likes of Andrey Koreshkov and Jay Hieron.

I want Ben in the UFC just so I don't have to hear him run his mouth about being the best WW out there anymore. But even mentioning him in the same breath as GSP is just flat out silly.

More incentive for me to want Hendricks to win. That way GSP can welcome Askren. And I could care less who wins but would love it either way. I cant stand either one of them.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

I dont know about Maia. He seems to forget were his bread is buttered. One sub in 10 fights and other than that wierd fight with Fitch he has lost to 2 strong wrestlers.

Dudes hilarious. he called the crowd a bunch of communists.


I don't think Bellator will care all that much to lose him like Strikeforce and Shields.

His last two fights have been fantastic. His last fight was extremely entertaining.

I am one of those who believe that unless you are fighting in the UFC you probably are not facing the best in the world on a consistent enough basis. I fully believe that with Askren as well, but he is finally starting to show some evolution to his game. Sure, bring him over, lets find out how good his wrestling really is. There are some monsters in the UFC who I think can stop his shot and put him in bad situations.

Askren vs Shields for sleeper (get it?) fight of the year!

I don't think anyone short of GSP or Koscheck is stopping his shot in the UFC WW div.

Condit, Diaz, Maia and Shields would all be dangerous from their backs even after being taken down though.

Lawler, Kampmann, Saffediene, and Rory are getting taken down and beat up all night. Ellenberger might make it competitive but I still think Askren out wrestles him.
