Askren completing takedowns after his arms were fully extended on a sprawling opponent was nuts.

I fell asleep during the first round, woke up in the fifth and didn't miss a thing.I hate Askren's style. If he was in a street fight he'd have to hold a guy down till he died of hunger.

I didn't see much in the way of high level BJJ. His ground and pound helped with the guard passing. The arm traingle attempts weren't committed to. It pretty much was a "keeping busy" type of sub attempt. pretty hard to finish top guys without serious intent.He did chain wrestle really well. I don't see anyone in Bellator at that weight class that can stop him. You either need an equal or better wrestler to stop the takedown (none), or a real dangerous BJJ guy who can strike off the ground (none).

I just can't believe he had full mount for almost 2 full rounds and couldn't finish, and at one point it looked like the ref was considering standing them up.

Askren Gassed out, fighting 5 x 5 minute rounds is alot different than wrestling. He will adapt eventually though.

i've never seen somebody take such a beating from top position. with that said...he's very green and has a ton of potential. he's great at guard passing. just needs to REALLY work on his gnp. was pretty bad. his standup...well practically nonexistant but at this point it doesn't really matter. its going to be really interesting to watch him develop thats for sure

Finally got to watching this fight.Askren's wrestling is unbelievably good. And I take back any "blanket" statements I've said about his past fights, because he brought it.His GnP needs some work, as he lacks finishing power despite being in dominant positions all night (granted Lyman Good is a pretty damn good fighter and tough SOB), but he was very active on top this time around, and much moreso than his earlier fights.At his age, he'll be getting better and better. Hopefully his fights become a little more exciting, but damn if he isn't extremely effective at what he does.
