I don't care where (just far)
It’s really interesting that Jorge isn’t the shoe-in for next title shot. Maybe they are waiting for Leon Edwards vs RDA so if Edwards wins they matchup the Edwards/Jorge heat.

I imagine if Robbie beats Colby they could go with Jorge for the title. If Colby wins I guess you gotta give it to him though.

Id like to see him go up against another wrestler. Let’s see what happens with colby and robbie.

Askren’s suspension feels short. Aug 21 before he can train and September before he fights again.
I’d like to see Askren vs Maia, elite grappling vs elite grappling. My money is on the Till fight.

Askren seems to be taking it in his stride. I agree that Till will probably be his next fight. Where does Woodley fit into all this though?

The big money maker is jorge vs colby, also depends on how long usman takes to get back

also colby Instagram is legendary https://www.instagram.com/ColbyCovMMA/

i think colby beats robbie too

That’s a great question, and I have no idea. It’s easy to forget about him in the busy 170 division.

Maybe he feels like there isn’t a fight that “makes sense” for him, maybe he’s waiting until the dust settles a little. I dunno.

doesn't he have arthritis in his thumb and hes 37 needs to retire

I expect maia doing the same thing to askren as he did to fitch.

Shit, Santos is fucking tough. Hope he didn’t do any further damage by continuing to fight on it.

Here’s Ben talking to Ariel




I think Ben got robbed. 30-27 Askren, Masvidal tapped

This dude is the real deal. Mad respect.

Only person I was more impressed with after a loss was Dominick Cruz. His podcast with rogan after the Cody fight was one of the most inspiring things I ever listened to

Only goes to show you how much of a clown people like Rousey and Conor are that end up being deluded by their own egos

Askren has made a ton of enemies and I cannot fault them for hating him. He might be a great genuine person but the dude is a literal roman statue of an internet troll.
Colby is hated because he is just very much a douche in a true way.

I have become a big fan of Askren since Joe Started talking about him. I find his tactics amusing and everyone loves a good specialist. The last true specialist I can think of is Demian Maia. Dude is the current BJJ GOAT. I have more respect that he showed face right after the fight. No cowardice unlike those that put up fronts like Ronda(fyi I am a big time hater still).

I listened to Brendan Schaub this morning and I agree. GIVE MASVIDAL A TITLE SHOT. Let Usman recover and then have them fight! Screw the winner of Colby and Robbie.

Just a reminder, she was on the cover of RING magazine. That’s how much they tried to hype her up. I remember watching Tate vs Rousey II, watching her getting tagged, and thinking she’s going to be in trouble with a good striker.

Out for 2019? That's very optimistic. Looks like a career ender to me. Don't even know how he was able to put pressure on it.
