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.
