So Ben Askren’s mom found a video. Let’s watch Askren wrestle Chris Weidman from 2001

Wrestling is an art. While wearing a singlet Ben Askren knows how to paint. Back in the day current UFC champion Chris Weidman could figuratively paint the happiest tree through the use of amateur wrestling. From a VHS laying around at Askren’s mom house we have actual footage of two future MMA champions wrestling as grappling neophytes.

Neat!

Before UFC 187 this weekend check the 2001 style of both Askren and Weidman. Depending on your rooting interest, the soundtrack to this wrestling match is either Ja Rule’s Pain Is Love or Nelly’s Country Grammar
