        The UFC never "made Ben wait" it was his style that made him an unattractive proposition for the UFC. They had a dominant champion in GSP who would outjab wrestlers and outwrestle strikers with lay and pray, They didn't want to go from that right into another boring fighter but finally signed him when the WW division became super Wrestle heavy. Look at the top 5 Usman, Woodley, Covington, Askren, RDA all grappling heavy fighters, then add outside the top 5 wonderboy, masvidal, Till all strikers with weak TD defence it doesn't make for an exciting division and that's why Askren now got his chance

                      Lawler did say he wanted to run it back. Don’t want the rematch but he did say he wanted it. :)

                        Colby v Usman. Masdival V Askren. Lawler v Till. Tyron V winner of rda Lee? I don't know all these lightweights in WW really shaking things up. Or Tyron V masdival and Askren vs RDA/Lee

                            With the lightweight and welterweight divisions being so stacked with talent.... and ESPN wanting to broadcast fights every week, I wish the UFC would just quit screwing around and book Ben to fight another big name like Nate Diaz to crown a 165lb champ during international fight week in July.

                            The new division is inevitable anyway. As it is now there are only about 15 legit contenders between the two existing ones. And with Pettis knocking out Wonderboy... damn near 1/3 of the welterweight top ten can't even fight each other because they're teammates. And that doesn't even touch on the cluster-fuck at 155, where Max is about to enter the mix in a division that's already home to Conor and Khabib.

                            I'm all for tough competition, but this is getting ridiculous. With the way things are now, there's more than one person who's earned a shot but will likely never get it... and as a result the UFC is missing out on a boatload of cash.

                              To tell ypu the truth....I think that Masvidal would clean Askren out. Hes no punk.

                                @Paul-E G'z i totally agree but he cant fight the way he does now forever.....someone WILL learn to exploit it and make an Askren pancake out of him. Im a big fan of his method just not his attitude....he borders on spoiled punk brat when he opens his mouth. Hes a bad ass, no doubt but hes a shithead too.

                                He won't have the room to do any of that, askren is a space vacuum, he takes the distance between his competitors and negates it immediately

                              Problem is; Robbie's seems to be the only one that isn't afraid to get in there with him.

                              Now before anyone busts my balls for saying that. I know he had a rough start against Robbie. But ufc guys spent 5 or 6 years running their mouths and calling Ben out constantly when they knew there wasn't a damn thing he could do about it, but now that he's there.... they've all come down with amnesia.

                              And when they do say something, it's because they got put on the spot in an interview... and their excuse for why they won't fight him, is because he's not good enough. Like we're all supposed to believe that these guys are suddenly opposed to easy money or the publicity that comes with ending a 19 fight winning streak.

                                      I wanna see high level grappler vs high level grappler. Colby/Usman/Maia/Askren/Gunnar - pair these guys up (some have already happened). Stop constantly ruining fights with this striker vs grappler horseshit. So I want Askren vs Maia, Colby, Gunni or Usman. And Lawler vs Masvidal, Till, Wonderboy, Ponz or Edwards. Not for nothing, Till vs Mike Perry now makes sense again.

                                              Chael sonnen, please listen to me. I've commented on your stuff I've been a fan of yours since day one I respect you and I think your mind is brilliant. Please listen to what I have to say. You have a contacts. Dana White is an ego out of control I think he should have already left the presidency of the UFC. he gets emotionally and personally involved in business decisions is the height of unprofessionalism to the point to where they almost missed Ben askren something that could have had made them millions someone who could even be bigger than Conor McGregor just because Dana was butthurt. And I apologize for the lowbrow reference please continue reading, it's just that no other situation or word can describe how Dana was acting like a petulant child. Please use your contacts and please do not let the UFC Force askren into another Robbie Lawler rematch. It's a non title fight, askren over Lawler in the rankings he's starting to enter his decline he's exiting his prime all those still in it he doesn't have time the fuck with a worthless rematch with Lawler he's got to fight masvidal Covington Marty or someone like a Nate Diaz but not an anti wrestler wrestler destroyer like Robbie Lawler there's no point in Lawler rematch please use your resources and your contacts to tell Dana White in the people at the UFC to listen no one wants Lawler rematch it's a retarded idea and it hurts askren as he's been already prevented his rightful spot for way too long over childish immature mentality of a poor poor poor UFC " president ". thanks sonnen

                                                  I think a rematch is inevitable. But I’d rather see Lawler and Askren both take on different matchup‘s first

                                                          do you think Dana will actually give him that, though?

                                                            Ben Askren is the most overrated fighter in history of mma. Mark my words he won’t win a fight in the ufc. Lawler doesn’t count

Lets see some fresh fights instead. I don't get why ppl would be against Lawler/Askren fighting other fighters especially when both don't seem that interested in the rematch to begin with

                                                                            • realist realist
