There’s no point in fighting someone who is a, his size or b, actually has standup skills as an mma fighter because he’ll lose. He can fight matches like Ben for years and get 10s of millions.

I'm not sure he can though? Askren is a throwback in a lot of ways, probably the last high-level MMA fighter we'll ever see who has absolutely zero striking skills. Even if you look at a guy like Khabib his offensive striking was not great but light years ahead of Askren's (and his striking defense was a very underrated aspect of his skill set). Paul's options seem to be a) call out other random celebrities, who in most cases he'd probably destroy b) fight almost any other big name MMA fighter and get knocked on his ass or c) fight an actual pro boxer, probably someone nobody has ever heard of, and get destroyed. In terms of names that have been thrown around the most similar to Askren would probably be Dillon Dannis, but he's not going to make a ton of money fighting someone that nobody outside of BJJ/MMA diehards have ever heard of.

Kind of wild what happened to Weidman.... I never cared much for the way he celebrated when it happened to Anderson Silva during their fight. I still don't wish it upon anyone and I am not in any way happy it happened to him. I hope he has a speedy recovery.

"this is nasty" warning

I watched it live, crazy card, full of awesome results. I got all the main cards right, but the manner it occurred was surprising. Did you expect Usman to crack Masvidal with one shot? Rose with head kick? Anthony taking our Krutes knee? Crazy event.
That video of Weidman is hard to watch, but I was not supersized he lost, he looks brittle compared to Weidman 5 years ago. Also I don't respect his camp, the Ray Lango cheaters, they train to bait opponents to knee them illegally, I remember Weidman trying to bait one opponent in of the fights it backfired as he ate a legal knee, but his buddy Aljemain pulled it off correctly and is know a champ.:rolleyes:
