Former Bellator MMA Welterweight champion Ben Askren has been in the news recently after commenting that he\u2019d like to fight former UFC welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre inside the Octagon when the UFC returns to Montreal in 2019. Askren retired from MMA last year after knocking out Shinya Aoki at the ONE Championship. Shortly after his retirement fight, \u201cFunky\u201d immediately went on social media to implicitly call out UFC middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre. Askren has long called for his chance to test himself against Georges St-Pierre. Moreover, Askren is offering a prediction of how the fight will happen, where he unsurprisingly sees himself as the winner. \u201cHere\u2019s what I think happens, because the one thing I have over him is I have the wrestling advantage and I don\u2019t get tired, and that\u2019s usually what he\u2019s relied on in the last, say, 10 to 12 fights or so,\u201d Askren said on Monday\u2019s episode of The MMA Hour (via MMA Fighting). \u201cI think he\u2019s very tough to take down early. I think he\u2019s very tough. I think he\u2019s probably going to win the striking battle, but one of the things, I never take a lot of damage. I just don\u2019t get hit a lot. That\u2019s what I\u2019m good at.\u201d He anticipates the showdown to happen sometime next year, around \u201cMay or June\u201d of 2019, and he believes he would be able to wear St-Pierre down so badly, that he would end up winning the bout via late stoppage. \u201cAnd over the course of the second and third round, I start to wear him down, my takedowns become more effective,\u201d he continued. \u201cBy the third and fourth round, I\u2019ve started dominating with my top game. He\u2019s used to being on top \u2014 he can\u2019t get me off of the top. If he does get a momentary glimpse of hope, I\u2019m back on him, no problem. \u201cAnd in the fifth round, he mentally breaks and he says, \u2018I can\u2019t do this anymore, I\u2019ve never been in this position in my life,\u2019 and he lets me finish him.\u201d \u201cTKO. He just says, \u2018I\u2019m done with this sh-t.\u2019\u201d To be clear the odds of this fight actually happening are slim as Askren\u2019s bad blood with the UFC preventing him from competing inside the Octagon and St-Pierre would need to be medically cleared and recently turned down many potential names. Not long ago GSP praise upon the \u201cextremely, extremely talented\u201d Askren, but he doesn't want him as nobody knows him.
