    I love guys like Chandler who use their wrestling, and incorporate it into MMA. But Askren doesn’t do that, it’s purely wrestling. He doesn’t look for submissions. He hasn’t developed ground N pound and doesn’t use elbows enough. True this isn’t MMA, but what’s also true is that it’s not a Wrestling match either. Fair enough he hasn’t had long to translate into MMA, but I’m not seeing a fighter, I’m seeing a Wrestler. There has to be a line between using your skills, and entertaining the fans.

    I personally don’t have a problem with it. I’m an Askren fan too. They call it Mixed Martial Arts for a reason. But seriously, if you are fighting a guy who has knockout power, you’re not gonna stand there and bang with them. Especially if your a wrestler. There’s nothing wrong with it. Not everybody is gonna stand and bang. This isn’t boxing. It’s is MMA. And when they take them to the ground it’s all part of it.

    On a second note… If he’s that good of a “grappler” he should learn some subs…

    Just a thought

  7. Preston Vaughan says:

    Considering Wrestling isnt a martial art, and doesnt produce “damage” it shouldnt be called “fighting” the sport Has changed….into a competition, but people have the right to complain because the sport they love/d no longer exist with fighters like him.

  8. soulfan36 says:

    People seriously need to stop complaining about wrestlers. If you don’t like it, don’t watch the sport.
