You shouldn’t be surprised at the title of this article. Now, if it read ‘Ben Askren wrapped Karl Amoussou with a blanket of violins at Bellator 86′ — then I would say the Oklahoma commission wasn’t doing their job in preventing foreign objects from being smuggled into the cage. Imagine being wrapped in a blanket of violins. Every time you had an itch, the probability of starting a symphony would drastically increase.
We all knew what Ben Askren would do tonight — and he did it. There’s a reason Askren has been on the official MiddleEasy Frate Trane list (above Cain Velasquez and Jon Jones) for over two years now. The real question is who is more dominant on the ground at 170 lbs: Georges St. Pierre or Ben Askren? Answer that question very carefully, my friend. When it comes to fighter talent, promotions mean very little.
Unfortunately Zombie Prophet simply can’t make a .gif of Karl Amoussou’s servitude from the ground-and-pound of Ben Askren. It would be like 650mbs — just imagine that thing autoplaying on MiddleEasy for the rest of the night. Your internet provider would assassinate you.
Massive props goes to Ben Askren on yet another title defense and improving his record to a flawless 11-0. Bellator welterweight tournament fighters, have fun trying to stop the Askren takedown.
