Ben Askren is Really Good & People Have Forgotten
Ben Askren is a former Bellator welterweight champion, ONE welterweight champion and about three hundred achievements in wrestling. Askren has had a highly successful MMA career but everybody has started forgetting just how good he is due to him fighting Jorge Masvidal and Masvidal winning in five seconds by a career changing flying knee.
The once 18-0 fighter, Askren looked unstoppable when he defeated the ONE welterweight championship against Shinya Aoki. He won that fight in literally less than a minute. He didn’t go for the takedown straight away and that’s how Askren should fight, if the takedown’s there then perfect but don’t start the fight shooting for a takedown straight away as he exposes himself for something like a knee or an uppercut. He began his UFC career by going for a takedown something Lawler saw coming and Askren nearly paid the price for it as Lawler came extremely close to knocking Askren out.
Ben Askren is really good and people have definitely have forgotten and if I’m entirely being honest, I did too. When his fight against Demian Maia was announced, I thought Maia was going to win but I changed my mind. I do think Ben Askren will win this fight and I think it’ll be a dominant win for the funky one and I really hope my prediction is true.
