Video: No piledrivers, but watch Tim Kennedy vs. Ben Askren in a wrestling match

Unless Brock Lesnar F-5’s a 25 five foot great white shark back into the ocean this will be the best thing you will see today. You could roam your local beaches and hope to spot something pro wrestling related but improve your odds by watching this video of UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy versus One FC welterweight champion Ben Askren in an impromptu grappling match.  With both Kennedy and Askren coming off separate controversial bouts, the sport of rolling round in ring is a place free of everything but a gentleman’s agreement to put on a good show.

The video is also further proof that Askren should one day be wrestling and submitting dudes in the UFC while Kennedy next fight in the Zuffa promotion should be against a top ten opponent.  For now take solace in the fact that at any moment in this video a shooting star press could be hit or a figure four leg lock could be slapped on.
