How many of you knew Ben Askren is wrestling a 2012 NCAA champion on PPV this weekend?

How many of you knew Ben Askren is wrestling a 2012 NCAA champion on PPV this weekend?

Ben Askren passes guard like cops pass through red lights in Los Angeles. I'm convinced that Ben Askren could takedown God at will, let alone any 170lber out there. I've scanned my mental Rolodex of other welterweights and the only names I can extract are Georges St. Pierre, Jake Shields and Tyron Woodley -- and I would donate all the food in my refrigerator to see each of those fights. There's a reason why Askren is ranked in our official Frate Trane list. There are few things that exist in this universe that can stop Ben Askren from putting you on your back. You, not me. It would be silly to get in the cage with this guy. I'm quite fine with my box of Devil's Food Cookies and my DVD box set of The Golden Girls.

Askren is a man without a promotion. Bellator is waiting to counter UFC's offer, and UFC is calling Bellator out on their shenanigans. In the meantime, it appears Ben Askren is going to wrestle 2012 NCAA champion Quentin Wright this weekend in Las Vegas and all of you can see it on PPV.

Check out a trailer from the upcoming match. PPV wrestling match, wow. Although to be fair it's not really PPV, more like subscription based.

Askren will get some clean heat for a while, then throw an illegal knee at the end, followed up by some chair shots to set up the big rematch at Survivor Ser-oh somebody already made a pro wrestling joke. As you were.

I don't know much about this guy. I know he's a wrestler, but that's about it. Wasn't he a champion @ 170 in Bellator? Why isn't he in of Bellator anymore? Can someone bring me up to spped on this guy? Thanks

I knew he was wrestling, but I could care less.

His fights in Bellator put me to sleep, so watching him wrestle would probably put me in a mild coma.

I agree his fights are boring, but he is one of the most exciting wrestles of all time. He puts up a ton of points

A PPV wrestling match that doesn't include a steel a cage or the use of folding chairs? ehh I'm sure it will be a huge success.

Ben Askren *used* to be boring. Something in him snapped like a tard losing his pudding snack and he's been on a tear. Bellator wants to get rid of the guy because they have no one that can even come close to challenging him.

Looks like the match did happen. No 2012 NCAA champ for Ben to wrestle last night.

Lucky enough, Quentin Wright a 2011 & 2013 NCAA champ was there for Ben to whoop up on.
