Askren's blunt critiques on Twitter have prompted a swarm of responses from St-Pierre fans. Few are complimentary, but the 28-year-old laughs it off.

"I don't event read them," he said. "I scroll though them. But I've got so much harassment from GSP supporters this past week that it's hilarious."

Askren even issued a challenge to UFC President Dana White. He said at the next UFC Fan Expo, he wants to wrestle St-Pierre for $1,000 per takedown. He was even willing to give White, a known gambler, 3-to-1 odds. He got no response. ("Maybe I'll make him another offer – 5-to-1. Maybe he'll think that's fair," Askren joked.)

"I think obviously if we fought, I'd create scrambles I'd win," he said. "And the other thing we saw – and I know (trainer) Firas Zahabi is making excuses – he got tired. He got really tired in the third, fourth and fifth round against Nick Diaz. But Diaz just doesn't have the power to put GSP on his butt or put pressure on him.

"Nick Diaz just didn't have the skill set he needed to beat him. I do"

LOL@that challenge. He should challenge him to a 100m dash and a pullup contest while he's at it.

Maybe Askren should be asking Bjorn why they barely test in Bellator and where he's going to find real tests for him and why Bjorn ducked signing Fitch

Askren would be foolish to judge GSP's wrestling off the DIaz fight( which is why I think he's trolling, he can't be that dumb) He even mentions GSP getting tired in the championship rounds, that should signal a red flag for him, when has GSP ever been tired in the championship rounds.

If askren is as good as he thinks, maybe one day he will face 8 years of the worlds best, spending fortunes on training camps to beat him. As GSP does.

Agreed.

In Dana's world, $1000 is a tip, not a wager.

Better add a couple of zeros Ben. Then you might get his attention.

I love to Askren in the UFC. Yes he is incredible boring to watch but i would at least be interested to see how his wrestling skills hold up against some decent fighters.

Lombard was also suppose to be impossible to hold down yet Boetsch and Okami handled him with easy.

Askren is ofcource a slightly different animal but he still looks small to me in most of his fights. Perhaps i am wrong but i have a feeling that will have a more negative impact on his abilties to win fights in the UFC then it does in Bellator.

Fitch vs Askren would be good to see as well. Perhaps WSOF and Bellator could do a co promotion? Phone Post

Michai -  Fucking laughable. Gsp would take him down in the first 5 seconds. I'd bet my house on it. Phone Post

In an MMA environment?

Absolutely.

In a wrestling match?

Not a chance.

GSP has the best wrestling-for-MMA in the sport, but Askren would demolish him in a wrestling match.

Askren you may or may not be the better wrestler but GSP is the better fighter, and that's what is important.

This also shows how bored he is with Bellator now, and how piss poor their challenges are for him even though Hieron already showed him his holes.

Dumb. Of course Askren is a better pure wrestler. But, but, mma ain't pure wrestling. What would be the point?

He should challenge him to an exciting fighter competition. It'll end in the most boring draw MMA has ever seen. Phone Post

This further proves how bored champs get in other orgs after they are constantly being fed slapdicks for challengers.

But askren really stands no chance against GSP and he should focus on who his next challenger will be after their little tournament is over. Phone Post

He might be able to out wrassle GSP if he only has to worry about wrassling. But when he has to worry about a jab breaking his orbital bone it quickly becomes a different story. The most impressive thing about GSP is that he continues to win because he has mastered the basics to a degree that other people don't know how to deal with him.

So ... nothing like Koscheck at all.

Once Koscheck learned how to fight, he became a very entertaining fighter. He was a boring blanket for his first couple of years after TUF, but ever since then he has been an action fighter. Ben Askren isn't fit to carry Koscheck's jock strap when it comes to evolution as a fighter.
