Ben Askren MSG interview

Great interview.

StrikingMMA - Great interview.

! for sure. glad any old beef between him and Dana was squashed publicly by both already and the traded fighters got increases in pay.

7:49

It’s cool to see how happy Ben is after the trade. He wanted this.

Need someone to make a GIF of askren saying step up and leaving. 

Excited to see what Ben can do.

Huh didnt even know that Ben is in the UFC now ehh. Interesting to see what he can do.

Ttt

Tremendous

The icing on the cake is that Dana is excited and proud, plus they’re on good terms.

Next to the champ Thompson is the hardest fight. He the only person Ben’s not fucking with also.

Ben could wrestle Thompson to the ground. Tyron fought him twice, the blueprint is out there already. Alpha Male eventually figured out Dom Cruz in a similar fashion

Indeed it is, the whole thing has genuinely put a smile on my face. Even if Ben doesn’t succeed, it’s the right thing to give him this opportunity, he deserves it. 

Look at the buzz Askren has caused, its been a shot in the arm that the UFC needed. The trade deal was a masterstroke, with all parties seemingly happy.

Even the Twitter thing (Ben being blocked by DW) has been funny and added to the drama of the last week. 

Can’t wait to see Askren in action. 

I’d much rather see Askren/Lawler than Askren/Wonderbore …Lawler will at least try to go for a ko…Wonderboy would be way too passive Ann not throw any strikes for fear of being taken down…I don’t see Askren finishing either guy though

Ben better start training Mma asap…his fight with Santos was a pretty bad showing

Love it! I’m stoked and can’t wait to see Ben fight again. Dana is my new hero.

I bought one of those shirts Ben’s talking about in 2009. It used to be my daughter’s favorite shirt…

Tyron was equal if not a better striker than Thompson. Tyron has the full package(pun intended) while Ben is a one trick pony. He gets Till to the ground but not Thompson. Thompson has shown he is an excellent wrestler.
