There is no possible way I will retell the string of bad luck Jay Hieron has endured since 2008. There's already a large chance that a piano may fall on your head at a later point in the day just by reading this article. Whenever some negative improbable scenario happens in your life, you've been 'Hieroned' -- and it will stick with you for the rest of your life.

Some of you missed the Hieron vs. Riggs bout from 2010, Jay Hieron's final fight for Strikeforce at Strikeforce Miami. Some of you meaning every person that wasn't inside the BankAtlantic Center on January 30th 2010. In 2009, Riggs vs. Hieron was included in the main event of the above mentioned card and everyone finally got a full-nights sleep with the knowledge that Jay Hieron would finally get some respect from the universe. Wrong. We were all wrong. Wes Sims and his pro-wrestling dialect decided to bump the Hieron vs. Riggs fight to anundercard and we all sat there on our sofas in a hopeless state of despair. A few days later, EA Sports MMA announced they would stream the fight live on their site, free of charge. Their intentions were good, but the technology was straight out of Bedrock. Not the diatomaceous rock or the Lil' Wayne song. We're talking about the city where you had to power your car via your blister ridden feet. Life in Bedrock must have been rough, but still not as rough as not being able to see Hieron vs. Riggs. The screen went black within three seconds of the bout and the feed didn't return until the moment after the fight ended.

Yeah, that's the kind of luck Jay Hieron has.

Now that Hieron is sitting on the edge of a title shot against Ben Askren, we caught up with him to get his take on the guy I've personally deemed to be 'the new Sakuraba.'

Wait a minute, Askren is the new Sakuraba? He's obviously a great wrestler and a great prospect, but how did you make the Sakuraba connection?

Great wrestler, great prospect, and a bit cocky pretty much sums it up. I've met him twice, and he was cool both times. His wife is a sweetheart. It'll be interesting to see how quickly his striking improves under Duke.

Askren used to use a lot of weird tie-ups back in the day, I haven't been able to see him fight.. but he probably still has an unothodox style and Layzie being confused by what he saw and made a connection to Sakuraba who really was nothing like Ben.

His wrestling prowess mixed with his unorthodox jits. I always get called out on it whenever I bring up the comparison. It may be too early to call it, but at this current time I'm comfortable making that assumption.

I don't like Hieron chances if he gets in the ring with Askren.
