Askren, however, was undaunted and offered a harsh response to fans who did not appreciate his effort.

“I was told you Canadian fans like fighting and I haven't seen anybody look that good in a long time,” said Askren, who successfully defended his title for the second time. “If you don’t like the ground work, there is a sport they call boxing; that’s not as fun, though.”

That's his style, it's not flashy, but it gets the job done. Most MMA fans hate it, but being a fan of him and knowing his background I love it. If I'd never met him and played around of DG with him I'd probably dislike his style and in-ring personality. That's another thing, his persona is way different and less cocky out of the ring; I love that he's got this villain persona that he feeds off of. I would like to see how he fares in a better organization, I think his proved all he needs to in Bellator.

I agree w/ that Bellator statement. he needs to move on, and move up. I enjoyed watching him easily get out of holds w/ the right counter-weight or pressure. Not that I'd demand it, but it would be neat to see what he could do w/ some serious kicking/striking mixed in. For now though, it's doing what it needs to do.

He was on the MMA Hour last week and he had little interest in talking about the fight...but when asked about disc golf he lit right up! Talked about the PDGA and playing worlds and Am Nats. I emailed him to let him know if he'd mentioned Discraft he would have had an extra 25 frisbees.

Rogan is fired up tonight, think I saw some powdered sugar on his nose.

I can't wait for this fight. I honestly have no idea what's gonna happen. I feel like it's been a long time since I've seen Rashad fight well. A loooong time. Jones has just been dominant of everyone. I kinda wanna see him get put on his ass, but I ... don't think it's gonna happen I guess.

Jones by KO in 3.

Big Ben put the big hurt on him fosho.... And Jones looked great, just a lil too much for Evans. Can't wait till 146, pretty sure Oveream will be new champ ....
A bad day at disc golf is still better than a good day at anything else.... Unless its also disc golf

If he can't keep his hand in one piece he's gonna be a coach.

I think they make him fight once more in Strikeforce which is a complete waste of his prime. UFC bound eventually. Dude has an unreal back story. Glad to see him topple Barnett. Both of them could make waves in the big org.

Jon Jones got a DuI and totaled his Bentley this weekend. I bet Bud Light was real happy about that.
