    That last sentence about Askren starting his career 2-0 seems a bit out of place.
    If he doesn't start 2-0, his MMA career will be very brief..and good luck DH!

    Jon Fitch lost his first fight and was 2-2 after his first 4 fights so not necessarily.

    Fitch was coming from nowhere, whereas Askren is a college wrestling legend and an Olympian... Hard for me to imagine that it makes sense for him to struggle through a rough beginning like that.

    I have business in Chicago the week after your fight, so unfortunately I wont be able to make it. I believe you could benefit from some judo training and learning its correct application in an MMA setting. I would be happy to go over some positions with you, if you so see it fit. Further more, if you'd like, perhaps we could spend an evening on the town. We could even bring our little friend P Jersey and I'll but him all the alcohol he can drink, (shouldn't be more than a cocktail or two for a person his size).

    In any event, I wish you good fortune and safety. I hope we cross paths on my trip. Cheers

    This is one of my favorite posts in a while for a few reasons...

    Just thought it was an odd comment given he hasn't fought once yet to say his price will go up if he goes 2-0.

    Too bad they've probably already cast TUF for next year and will now only be doing 1 season a year from now on. He'd be a perfect candidate to make a star out of on TUF. Give him a way to get into UFC without being thrown to the wolves right away.

    How 'bout the WEC, they still have the welter weight division? Wouldn't mind seeing him against Johny Hendricks
    Lets go Brent!
