MMA Squared: Welcome to the big leagues, Ben Askren

In the opening 30 seconds of their fight, Robbie Lawler put Ben Askren to task.

Fans (myself included) of Robbie Lawler were worried about how the veteran would handle Askren’s wrestling attack. Little did we know that ‘scoop him up and slam him through the floor’ was a viable strategy.

I’m going to remember this moment for a long time.

Do you want to see the rematch? Robbie’s future fights are all gravy at this point. He should fight whoever & whenever he feels up to it. Askren is just getting started on a different path, so I’m not dying to see it.

Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you tomorrow. Chris.
