QUICK TWITT | Ben Askren Asks Dana White For GSP


Bellator welterweight champion, Ben Askren, has recently opened up on the market as a free agent.

His boss at Bellator, Bjorn Rebney, has stated he’s not all that interested in re-signing his champion and instead will help him pursue his dreams of fighting GSP.

Whether true or not,  Askren isn’t hesitating and almost instantly threw his name in the hat as a replacement for Johny Hendricks, should Hendricks withdraw from his bout against GSP.

    Bjorne Rebney won’t extend ur contract and u think ur gonna waltz right into the UFC and get a title shot with the best WW the ufc has ever had?? Stranger things have happened, Georgie would box ur ears in toilet bowl head.

    • GSP is overrated says:

      MATT HUGHES IS THE BEST WELTERWEIGHT EVER AND WOULD HAVE MADE GSP HIS BITCH IN HIS PRIME

      • UFC 84 Forever says:

        That isn’t even close to accurate. Matt was a badass but not better than GSP.

      • Harris 170 says:

        Matt was in his prime when he lost to gsp. And this coming from a big Hughes fan. Matt was dominating guys when mma was still small time. Gsp was the future and just outclassed him. Hughes was never a great striker either.

  2. D-rak says:

    Everybody gsp has fought was suppose to better in a certain area….Hughes,koscheck, trigg were better wrestlers,Alves was over all bigger and stronger,shield was better in submissions….Diaz,penn, and hardy were suppose to knockout or submit him(minus a submission with hardy)….GSP KICKED ALL THERE ASSES!!!!

    • GSP is overrated says:

      Actually the only asses he’s ever really kicked was a too old Matt Hughes, an out of shape BJ Penn, and Mat Serra (still one of my favorite fights he makes him tap with knees to the body).. The rest he just lays on for 25 minutes. And Diaz at the end of the 3rd-5th was starting to beat the living shit out of his face go re-watch the fight.

      • Anomie says:

        ROFL at Diaz beat the living shit out of his face…

        Deluded.

      • frankie says:

        he did beat the shyt outta his lazy lay and pray face, 1 more rd n he woulda beeen 2 beat up to continue n hed tap out like he did against serra when serra knokked his face str8 through the mat

  3. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    That’s the way you come into the UFC. Tell the boss your ready to go. Gotta love Askren. GREAT addition to the 70ers. I think he beats GSP. There is no way GSP stops him from taking him down. The only question would be can GSP keep from being kept down!!

    • Harris 170 says:

      Your sniffing to much glue buddy!! Askren isn’t in bellator anymore. Look at all of the great wrestlers Gsp has faced and who takes him down? No-one… In all of his ufc fights he’s been on his back for less than 3 minutes.

  4. Diego says:

    GSP would kick his ass … Still say he would have to fight a top contender before getting the title shot !!!

  5. kenny powers says:

    So what the fuck?? Bellator won’t let Alvarez go, someone we actually wanna see in the UFC, but they can’t wait to get rid of Askren who nobody cares about. Thats MMA injustice at its best.

    • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

      Yeah Rebney is pretty sneaky. He knows it won’t benefit the UFC if they put Askren on the roster.

  6. funny fight says:

    Most boring fight ever. I mean watching two sloths sleep would be more exciting.

  7. maddkillah says:

    be careful of what you wish for…..

  8. Ddddddddd says:

    Ben is a beast and gets better to watch every fight. I know he’s had some sh!tty fights but I’m more a fan of strikers and even I have dug his progress. I think he’ll do well and surprise. There’s speculation from certain viewers and I think even Dana is intrigued by the match. Bellator isn’t lettin this guy go.Their trying to make good business decisions and see what he’s worth considering his reputation.
