Watch Ben Askren completely demolish the 2013 NCAA Division I 197-pound wrestling champion this past weekend

Wait, people still think Georges St. Pierre has a chance against Ben Askren on the ground? Is that really a thing in MMA? Surely people that align themselves to that train of thought are just pulling an elaborate troll job. The only reason why Georges St. Pierre would go to the ground with Ben Askren is if he got tired of carrying that giant UFC welterweight belt at every press appearance.

The truth of the matter is Ben Askren can take any mobile (and immobile) object down at will at any given point in the space-time continuum and there is nothing modern science can do to stop him from doing so.

Last week we told you that Ben Askren was taking on Quentin Wright, the 2011 & 2013 NCAA Division I wrestling champion in a PPV match. Well, it happened and Ben Askren completely crushed him beyond recognition. Keep in mind, Ben Askren is six years removed from college and he dominated a guy that won the NCAA Division I title just a few months ago. Oh, and he did it in the 197-pound division.

Your move, Dana White.

what's with these rules? so weird
+31 # SST 2013-10-29 12:20
that was actually an entertaining wrestling match
+17 # bosswell 2013-10-29 17:34
Askren's wrestling matches are way more entertaining than his fights.
+9 # xtra_chewy 2013-10-29 12:23
As much as I hate Askren, IMO dude could run through 95% of the UFC's WW division. Besides GSP, I would like to see how Stun Gun, Ellenberger, Maia, RoryMac, Shields, and Diaz could hold up against him.
+2 # tefoak 2013-10-31 01:09
Maia would annihilate Askren, his strength plays right into Maia's hands.
+9 # EastSide 2013-10-29 12:28
The funk master reigns supreme. You should all get used to it. Askren has and will continue to push the evolution of the modern-mma ground game. Fighting or coaching, Askren's influence will be with us for decades. Fuck you Bellator.

greco roman wrestling is about 100% more entertaining.
+1 # Sal714 2013-10-29 13:26
Its freestyle wrestling.
+1 # lol 2013-10-29 17:09
was that directed at me? Yes I know this is freestyle, thats why I said Greco Roman is more entertaining and it is.
+1 # NoHomo 2013-10-29 13:27
What is this? I love it! Fuck GSP and MMA!
-1 # DiegosThirdEyelid 2013-10-29 13:41
No idea what i just watched.
+45 # Mr.Doctor 2013-10-29 13:45
Wait, what kinda wrestling is this? Where are the ropes? Why didn't anyone use a chair? I don't understand what's happening here.
+6 # Lee 2013-10-29 14:16
If only you could submit people in MMA, OH WAIT
-11 # SnakeJake 2013-10-29 14:50
Is it just me or does it look a little gay? I mean, I saw a prison scene on Sons of Anarchy that didn't look that different.
+3 # Mr.Doctor 2013-10-29 14:52
What part of two guys grinding on each other is gay?
+11 # NoHomo 2013-10-29 15:02
i've seen gayer things. this isnt that gay
-1 # Stgutfree 2013-10-29 19:42
lol, said the MMA fan.
-3 # Zanmato 2013-10-29 14:59
I don't know the rules of wrestling... however he had his back taken several times, GSP could definitely take advantage of that. I'd love to see the fight though
+5 # bayzel22 2013-10-29 15:04
No need for head gear when your ears are already cauliflowered shut lol
+2 # asd 2013-10-29 15:25
Marcelo Garcia completely dominated him on the ground too, It was just a roll but, anyways...
-3 # rippie74 2013-10-29 15:41
Don't think it'll happen... Dana doesn't wanna risk his golden boy (GSP) to this Askren kid. Can anyone answer this: Why is Ben Askren not in any MMA org currently? I thought he was the WW champ in Bellator?
+5 # jt33 2013-10-29 15:44
1. over everything im glad wrestling is getting showcased a little bit.. i hope this happens more. jordan burroughs please?

2. i'm not even that big of a gsp fan but lol at thinking askren even comes close to him.

3.askren was favored and did exactly what he was supposed to do.. this was a mismatch and everyone knows it. again ill say it.. do it against burroughs.

4. im still laughing at thinking he can beat gsp... and for that matter thinking he can also beat maia, shields, or diaz.

5. you train with duke roufus and the pettis bros.. learn some striking!
+1 # skidrow 2013-10-29 16:16
You know what website your on right? they have been on Askren's nuts since he was born, I mean the guys 3rd on they're freight trane list...that says it all.
+1 # jt33 2013-10-29 21:54
yeah i think its a troll job though. i fell for it at first but no way they're serious.

They should have a ringboy instead of a ringgirl for this sport, it's obvious that they're catering to the wrong demographic.
+5 # Mr.Doctor 2013-10-29 17:44
I always thought it would be funny if they had ringboys for the womens fights in UFC.
0 # NoHomo 2013-10-29 22:32
Boys being the key word, I agree they should have ringboys
+4 # Lime 2013-10-29 18:21
I think it may be time for zeus to take ben's dick out of his mouth
+2 # axl rose 2013-10-29 18:58
boring boring boring and kind of homo

"Wait, people still think Georges St. Pierre has a chance against Ben Askren on the ground?"

As a matter of fact, yes! GSP has made other decorated rastlers look silly. Sure Ben is awesome, but MMA ain't rastling and submissions are the name of the game. Ben wouldn't be so lucky with GSP on his back consistently looking for RNC.

Different game, different sport.
+3 # golden 2013-10-30 05:27
Im pretty sure gsp will fight askren in MMA not college wrestling. Stupid post.
+2 # mookiestick 2013-10-30 08:30
We get it, he's a good westler but nobody want's to see this one dimesionality in the UFC, not even Dana, see the TUF episode, "Michael Wootten" vs "Josh Hill". He'll be Fighting the loser of "Bucky Boyd" vs "the Belly"
+2 # pokerfacekilla 2013-10-30 11:21
Kind of a D**K move there at the end by Askren...
0 # BobbyR 2013-10-30 21:21
this is free style wrestling very fun. anyone of any age can do this sport.
+2 # ispitzhotfire 2013-10-30 22:25
UFC needs more fighters who can wrestle. Not wrestlers who can wrestle.
+1 # Dude 2013-11-02 00:21
Wrestling is not MMA. GSP all day by breaking Asprin's orbital bone.(Koschecki ng his azz)
