James Brown was always in the constant pursuit of urging people to ‘get down’ whenever possible. Years later, it’s clear that he was making a direct reference to Ben Askren’s MMA game.
There’s a reason why Askren is ranked number seven 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.
