Ben Askren gives harsh assessment of Kamaru Usman’s UFC 235 title win

MMA Live Stream Reddit for Jones vs Smith and Woodley vs Usman at UFC 235

"That's one I'm really gonna enjoy, brutalizing him".

"This is what I was always supposed to be doing", Askren said.

To those unfamiliar with his work, "Funky" Ben Askren is one of the best fighters to have never fought in the UFC. He's been stirring the pot with all the UFC fighters since he entered the promotion after being traded from ONE Championship for Demetrious Johnson.

In a minor upset, Woodley was soundly walloped by his challenger Kamaru Usman for five, lopsided rounds, ultimately surrendering the welterweight strap as a result.

While battling legal and personal issues, Jones has not lost a fight in the last decade. "You guys have a star", he relayed to his countrymen, hoping they will tune in to watch the biggest moment of his seven-year professional career. Askren is finally making his UFC debut after a decade in mixed martial arts and a lifetime of wrestling. If Usman isn't out of the fight by then, I foresee "The Nigerian Nightmare" coming into his own in the home straight.

Can't get enough UFC? .

Covington nearly had a fight booked with Woodley for UFC 228, however he suffered a nasal injury and was unable to go through with the bout. Six hours later, he was told that deal was no longer available.

Even in the lead-up to his last match against Alexander Gustafsson, UFC made a decision to move the card from Las Vegas to Los Angeles after Nevada chose against licensing him. "I'm not the freeking referee, that's what it all comes down to", Askren said. Askren still hasn't talked to White at any length since the move. "It's nice to see all these fans out here". That was like the third time I went over to him that night. You want to see the best versus the best, and he's been able to do weird sh-t to people. I could be wrong. He is up against one of the best grapplers in all of mixed martial arts so he should keep kicks to a minimum and those that he does throw should be aimed at the calf, so as to make it more hard to be caught by Askren.

After all the headaches he's caused - and there was another atypical drug test this week - it's a little surreal that his fight with Smith can be seen as a throwback to the good old days.

Kamaru Usman, the number two contender, takes on champion Tyron Woodley in a pick 'em fight that matches two of the best technicians in the game.

Ben Askren retired almost 18 months ago. The fans have clearly already taken a liking to Ben's eloquent verbal jabs on the mic so again, this was a decision that was met with some surprise. It's without a doubt one of the most stacked cards of the year.
