Askren in UFC now
« on: November 21, 2018, 06:52:14 PM »
Well, Ben asked, and he received.  He is now in the UFC and from all accounts, he couldn't be happier about it.  He is off challenging everyone.  This will be interesting no doubt. 

Looks like he faces Lawler on Jan 26 at UFC 233.

Ah, no tap out?   I don't watch MMA too much, I really don't like it when the guy is down and the guy who put him there jumps up and slams him in the head.   I just don't think that is quite sporting.  But I would like to see how Askren does on this match.

Askren was beating a guy looking at the ref to stop the match.  The ref didn't so Askren kept barely hitting the guy until the ref could see the dude was not defending.  Then the match stopped and Askren smiled at the ref.  Reminds me of when he was on his Olympic run and was in a funky exchange and looked at the ref and motioned to him that "this is my move about to happen" and then rolled the guy through although it could have looked like the other guy initiated the move.  I got a kick out of that.
