DC Thinks Ben Askren Never Knew How to Actually Fight Former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been settling into his analysis role nicely. DC has never been afraid to share his opinions of a fighter, no matter their placement in the UFC. Now that Cormier is making more appearances on ESPN with Ariel Helwani, he's been more inclined to give an in-depth analysis on how he feels about a fighter. And although he and Ben Askren are friendly, DC made a bold assessment that Askren never actually knew how to fight. In MMA, Askren secured world Welterweight titles in both Bellator and ONE Championship. During his run as Bellator world champion, he defended his title four times in a row which is the most consecutive title defenses in Bellator history. In ONE, he defended his welterweight title a consecutive three times before making his move to the UFC. DC Speaks About Ben Askren Askren will go down in history as one of the most decorated wrestlers to ever transition to MMA. But, according to DC, Askren never knew how to fight. He spoke about it on the DC\u00a0 & Helwani show, via ESPN. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?ve0txrp6ohmQ \u201cListen, I love Ben, he\u2019s my boy, but I don\u2019t know,\u201d said DC. \u201cThere was a point that I was scared \u2014 I was like \u2018Ben\u2019s about to be a world champion.\u2019 He was undefeated, he beat Robbie Lawler. I was like \u2018this dude\u2019s about to be a world champion and he doesn\u2019t even know how to fight.\u2019 He continued,\u201c Ben (Askren) never tried to learn to fight. He was about to be world champ. I love Ben, he\u2019s my boy, but boy\u2026 I\u2019ll tell you: Ben was about to become a world champ\u00a0 without learning how to fight.\u201d Striking Struggles DC went on to prove his point by mentioning how Demian Maia was able to outstrike Askren easily. And of course, what Jorge Masvidal did to Askren will go down as one of the best KO's in UFC history. Maybe it's a good thing that Askren never held a UFC title after all.
