This is why Dana hates Ben: he's better at promoting the UFC than Dana is.

Conor would be a pure fool to fight Ben. It be an obvious embarrassment and end of his career. And he won't even be able to get back his featherweight belt if Brian Ortega beats Max.

I cant believe this is actually happening. Ben being interviewed with a UFC banner in the back is surreal. This should've happened 3-4 years ago, but better than never they say. Let's hope something similar happens with Minakov in the near future.

Pure buisness standpoint - Nick vs Askren... Why???? Here's why... Striker, BJJ black belt vs elite grappler.. Nick, being the superstar he is introduces world to ben (Ben's still got like only 83 k on insta, and he definitely need a push) also, it's very winnable for Ben... And if he loses, you still get Nick back.. Win-Win

This guy is going to run through this division, be number two to his boy Woodley, attract GSP out of the woodwork and probably lose but it'll be competitive and people will finally realize that this man is the real deal

Askren vs Khabib, who wins? I personally believe Khabib would win, Askren has NOT been tested by A level fighters. He is 50% hype, 50% skill.

I wish him the best but you guys need to watch Askren's last few fights to see that why he would get crushed by the top 5 welterweights and LW.

Ben has looked horrible in his last few fights, no wonder he 'retired' to protect his record as all his easy matchups were gone. I'd say he gets exposed pretty quick in the UFC, first minute KO'd quick.

As I watch this, I’m getting a sense of why Dana snubbed him. I’m thinking the less Askren talks, the better off he’ll be.
