At Bellator 36 Ben Askren dominated tournament champion Douglas Lima, but the audience was more excited about two fights that broke out in the audience during the 29 minute bout.

Askren made no apologies.

“His stand-up isn’t something you want to mess with," said Askren. "If the Canadian fans want to stand on their feet for 25 minutes with Douglas, well, they wouldn’t last that long because he’d probably finish them earlier. My striking has improved tremendously, but that doesn’t mean that I’m going to stand around for 25 minutes and slug it out with someone that has one-punch knockout power. That’s ridiculous. If I wanted to do that I’d go to the sport of kickboxing.”

“People neglect the fact that I have a brown belt in jiu-jitsu. I feel like I landed ten times as many punches as I ever have and a lot of them were really, really hard. A lot of lesser men would have rolled over and gave up a rear-naked choke like most of the sissies in MMA.”

Askren has beent training his standup with Dule Roufus for eight months now, and expect to see some effective handiwork in the near future, and in the far future - Askren is not going anywhere.

 the only way his striking improved tremendiously is if he was prevoiusly punching himself in the face instead of the opponent

I think he unseats Bisping as king of the pillow hands, he is the champ of boring fights. I don't deny his wrestling/td ability, but I would never buy a card he is on.

Holy shit, I never realized Hieron won that fight. We better contact Bellator, the Judges, and everyone else that listed it as a win for Askren. It's crazy, I can't believe that this whole time, EVERYONE had it wrong, except for you.

Lol. I actually would have scored it for Hieron but your commitment to the bit was spot on. Made me chuckle. Phone Post

I don't have a problem with Askren but this quote is hilarious..

"I feel like I landed ten times as many punches as I ever have and a lot of them were really, really hard."

I didn't see any punches I would consider "really, really hard". Phone Post

Hieron should have lost to hawn... Hieron clearly lost to Ben. Sorry guys. As boring as it is don't skew history he got beaten decisively. Ben won't lose in bellator. Unless hawn goes back to 170 Phone Post

I don't even dislike him but they looked like arm punches to me. If he developed real ground and pound ability, with his positional grappling he'd be finishing fights in a couple of rounds. Phone Post

I wrote the article, some wording was changed. I have no idea what's up with the "29 minutes" line, etc. If you click the "read entire article" link you can see what I actually wrote. Askren's style is not very entertaining but he has been efficient.
