Ben Askren tuned into UFC 158 to see George St. Pierre's "dark side," and was apparently disappointed when it never came.


Quote:
"Have we seen GSPs dark side yet? Or is he saving it for rounds 4 & 5?? I saw more viscous things happen at the youth wrestling tourney!"

"After tonight I am 100% sure I could beat GSP. GSP is no longer an aggressive striker. He will not out wrestle or grapple me. He gets tired. Simple enough."
Undefeated Bellator Welterweight Champion Ben Askren (11-0) watched Georges St. Pierre win a unanimous decision against Nick Diaz in the main event of UFC 158 last Saturday night (March 16, 2013) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada (see it here), and let's just say he was not impressed by his performance. The "Funky" former Olympian is of the opinion that "Rush" lost his striking edge and was too tired to channel his vaunted "dark side" against the Stockton slugger, a vulnerability Askren believes he would exploit if and when they ever hook 'em up. Assuming the anti-sissy, fresh off a technical knockout win over Karl Amoussou, has equal or better wrestling and can't be jabbed into oblivion, does anyone out there in MMA land believe he's got a shot at defeating "Rush," let along a 100-percent guarantee?

Big talk from a self professed blanket fighter. It's easy to talk smack from another organization. I highly doubt GSP even knows who Ben Askren is.

Remember when Hector Lombard was 100% certain he could beat Anderson Silva?

What's funny is that he wouldn't be able to beat any of the top 5 WW's in the UFC to even get a shot at GSP.

Askren isn't as good as he thinks he is. But at least he would force Georges to jab him in his eye. After the fight people would rave about GSP out jabbing a wrestler with no stand up. It would be fun stuff.

GSP will have zero respect for Askren standing and itll look similar to GSP vs Hughes 2.

This fight would be a blowout. We might get to see GSP ko somebody because Askren has absolutely the worst stand up I have ever seen in mma. In one of his fights he actually fell down from throwing a hook. It's absolutely insane.

Askren would be dominated just like every other guy that was 100% sure.

I don't care what nobody say's, I love this guy. He has a non-exciting style, does everything he can to make sure that he wins, and doesn't have a care in the world for how everyone feels about it, as a matter of fact, he's very proud of it, and will talk trash to any fighter that has a problem with it. Atleast he doesn't give out promises that he'll finish fights. He tells every fighter and all fans exactly what he's going to do. You know what you're getting with this guy.

But on a serious note, comparing his wrestling to most of thw welterweight division, I think he would get tooled, especially against GSP. Askren has a different style of wrestling. He doesn't have a "Dominating, take you down at will", but more of a "Grab you and hold on to you until you give of the TD" type. From what I've seen of him so far, the main reason why he's been dominating the welterweight division in bellator is because they don't have wrestlers of much experience other than him. So essentially, he's taking advantage of a wrestler weak division. The only decent wrestler he fought was Jay Heiron, and Askren struggled. Some would go so far as to say he got robbed and Heiron won.

I like Askrens "You know what I'm gonna do, so do something about it" confidence. And he can talk all the crap he wants to, but if he has no desire to put his money where his mouth is and to try and compete in UFC's far superior welterweight division, his words are falling on deaf ears.

Who is Ben Askren?

Seriously though, who the hell does this guy think he is. Little league champ needs recognize his role and shut his hole.
