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.
