You rate him very highly St. Paul and appear to know more than me about him so I will take your word.

Don't get me wrong it's debatable, and I'll readily admit my mancrush on Askren. I just think his unparalleled credentials and more versatile takdowns give him an edge.

If it somehow happens, after Marquardt's suspension is lifted, it would be one of the best matches this year. Book it! :}

His suspension from Pennsylvania is over. But he isn't the right fit for Bellator, according to Bjorn Rebney.

Quote:
"The reality is that it's not often that a top-10 guy is available ... especially when he's coming off a win," Rebney said. "Nate's situation was pretty unique. It's an anomaly for a guy like that to become available, so we had discussions. But it just became pretty clear it wasn't the right fit."

I have no idea what the right fit means. Money? Didn't want the incredibly long Bellator contract? Don't want to be dependant on his TRT getting approved? No clue.

^ Maybe he still thinks "Papa Dana Zeus" will let him back into heaven, but it's just so right for him and his career to do something on his own at this point and sign with Bellator... although it sounds like he will play the role of the good boy and keep training in Jackson's, until he's brought back into the UFC.

SF will sign him. It's still a 'seperate entity' or so we are told (obvoiusly not after they scalped Diaz straight off SF).

Dana will want to keep him under the Zuffa banner.

Unfortunately for Rebney I think 'not the right fit' means money. But he needs a name bad for Hector Lombard, because beating bum after bum is becoming a bit old and Hectors time at the top is running out (his hitting his mid 30s now).

I think Nate will stay outside of Zuffa for now. Seperate or not Dana White still has alot of power in Zuffa. Though I can see what you mean by money when it comes to Rebney and Nate.
