Not retiring yet, still 1 person I want to beat up. @GeorgesStPierre @ufc @danawhite

Once I figured out GSPs dark place didn't really exist I knew he would be easy prey!

Ben Askren @Benaskren
Seriously though GSP in 2009 prob would have beat me, but this current version fights way too scared!

Ben Askren @Benaskren
I will lay on GSP for as long as I damn well please.
Askren hasn't gone full Sonnen yet but its percolating.

I like how he's threatening to "lay on GSP". He is a true fan of his own style.

His trash talk is garbage.

He is a garbage fighter.

Dude had a hard time with Jay Hieron.

pointless talk, Dana would have a hell of a time marketing a fight with someone as boring as Askren. It would be a waste of Zuffa's finances trying to sell an unsellable fight.

It shouldn't be that hard to sell this fight, Askren is after-all the Bellator champion, he's also game to talk trash. Nobody buys that GSP's fights are going to be "exciting" especially after the Hendricks fight which will be 25 minutes of jabbing.

The biggest problem is GSP's next two fights are already set up with Maia likely being the number #1 contender after this next fight and if Matt Brown beats Carlos Condit he'll clearly be next.

Maia should get by Shields, give Askren to Maia and we'll see how good he can lay on people for as long as he damn well pleases

No because then Maia isn't fighting for the title (which is what we want right?)

Who¿


...ah the guy whose fights are so boring that even the organisation in which he is champion, the organisation that usually threatens fighters with years of lawsuits if they try to leave for the UFC, doesn't want to prolong his contract.
