    I am not an mma expert, but i know enough to know that Harris was horrible!

    Congrats to one of my all time favorites though!

    vais! I am glad you joined us, hopefully we see more of you around these parts.

    Definitely a gimme fight Askren, he should fight 5 or 6 more of these types of fights until he gets the necessary skills to take on tougher comp.

    His opponent was not very smart either, not sure why he would clinch with an olympic wrestler who has no stand up skills. Askren might be the least phsyically imposing fighter out there, I think he could make 155 pretty easily.

    Yeah, I actually posted on flo wondering if they even have a weight room in Missouri. I know his style wont be to beat your head in and out muscle you...but a little bit may go a long way. He is pretty notorious for his grip strength. If he coupled that with some good weight lifting it could make a difference.

    That was too weak of a fight for him. I know he is early in his MMA career but that guy was bad. He is 1-2 going into the fight and is a co-main eventer. I think they could at least find someone with a 1-0 or 2-1 record to fight Ben. He will need to step it up soon if he wants to make a career out of this. You don't make the money fighting these fights.
    Props to winning agian!!!

    155? really? I thought I remember reading that cutting to 163 for the Olympics was a hard cut. He definitely didn't look small at that weight.

    It was. I wonder if theres a difference in the weigh in process for mma, like do they weigh in a day before instead of an hour before like they do in wrestling

    They do weigh the day before. Which I think is cheap. Make these guys weigh the day of and fight at a more natural weight, instead of cutting and then putting on 15 lbs over night.

    Good job Ben, cant wait to see him fight better comp. He could be a huge draw with his personality.

    That is true, it's a bit unfair. But, I don't care what weight you put back on in a day, your blood sugar is still screwed up. If you pile the food in you will be sorry come fight time. That cut stays with you longer than you'd think.
