I had just woken up, and that fight made me fall asleep again.

Not a whole lot different than what GSP does……except GSP would still be on top of him right now.

I have to say… Ben is an awesome grappler.

That was not even close. He did finish.

Gsp is way more exciting,you are blind buddy. Ben is boring. I can’t wait til he fights someone decent,he will get destroyed. Best fighter in the world? Yea right. Arrogant douche

While the sub attempts seemed half commited and more so keeping his prioirty on position if Koreshkov escapes, I dont even think GSP would have gone for subs at all. esp not a guillotine where he has to give up bottom like Askren did in round 1.

This was my first time seeing a Bellator fight; I conclude that Bellator is the WNBA of MMA.
The fight should have been titled:
High School Wrestler vs. Kid who is tough when he’s surrounded by his friends but turtles up when it’s one on one.
Does Asscram train ground and pound with Pee Wee Herman? The only thing his punches may have done was pop some zits on Andy’s face.
I think this fight would be better posted on a gay website (if not already).
Now can someone tell me how to get the last 20 minutes of my life back?

@JSAMUI -This was the first Bellator fight you’ve seen? You’re not qualified to even give an opinion. You watched 1 fight out of the hundreds and now you know all about it. Way to discredit any statement you’ve made.
I’m not a fan of wrestlers that don’t have submission skills like Askren, however last night was far from lay n pray. Ben continued to transition, but he really needs to work on subs. He wasn’t even putting the guillotine on correctly.

askren is the man, he would wreck gsp easily

Dave-O Says, in 8-1-2013 at 15:01:57 from    

OK…so he did finish this one…but Ben Askren is the Jon Fitch of Bellator. A good wrestler who wins fights and puts fans to sleep in the process.

This one was a snoozer.

Poor Russian announcers desperately waiting for anything to get excited about.
Can Askern finish anyone? He totally dominated the guy but showed no ground and pound and didn’t go for subs. It was all hold the guy down and pitty pat him.
Damn wrestlers.

@ Marvelous – Wreck GSP in what exactly? Knitting? Pilates?

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 8-1-2013 at 17:31:08 from    

are you guys blind? askren went for multiple subs in the first round, he pulled guard and went for sub like 1:45 into fight. at least askren moves and advances position unlike fitch/gsp. also askren can finish unlike gsp.

4th round finish guys tko. 2 in a row!

jdogg- askren can take punch, gsp doesnt hit hard. askren out-wrestle gsp all day. usa > canada

LeonXIII Says, in 8-1-2013 at 19:39:11 from    

Im sorry but this guy would never last in the UFC. HE IS BORING AS HELL. Cant believe some of you morons are putting him in the same sentence as the UFC. Ridiculous.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 8-1-2013 at 20:02:18 from    

Yeah but the difference is GSP is not fighting nobodies in Bellator…

KungFuLowKick Says, in 8-1-2013 at 20:04:55 from    

He finished his last two opponents…

Put GSP against nobodies like Koreshkov and he will finish them too.

whiteshadoo Says, in 8-1-2013 at 23:50:12 from    

Askren was the cat and koreshkov was the mouse… If you’re going to fight Askren best to brush up on some takedown defense.

Dave Says, in 8-2-2013 at 00:53:52 from    

perfect way of screwing up a fight. how can this guy have any pride of a win like this? god it was boring. his little punches couldn’t hurt a fly lol he literally won by grabbing the guy the whole time.

Jose veyna Says, in 8-2-2013 at 00:58:34 from    

I bet if Dana even hears Ben’s name he would be like.. Uh? Ben Who? What does he do?.. Who is that?

JSamui Says, in 8-3-2013 at 07:19:29 from    

Hi Licks, thanks for the comment. Please don’t get too riled up about people’s opinions. I just think that if Askren represents the top of his division, then it’s a pretty sad situation for Bellator. You’re right though, I should watch more fighters from this league. But I think we can all agree that the best talent is in the UFC. By the way, I’m glad to see you agree that Askren is not very impressive as a Champion and has a lot of work to do.

Take it EZ bro!!!
