UFC trades Demetrius Johnson for Ben Askren from One Fc.

What’s your take boys?

Dana getting desperate to remove Woodley as champ seems to be the consensus.

Also 125lbs division going to get scrapped if this is true and Cejudo vs TJ up next in Bantamweight.

I think we can all agree that DJ is a very entertaining fighter but his dominance in the division added with the MMA fan disdain for the super small divisions didn't seem to bring the numbers the UFC wanted. I highly doubt Askren is going to get big numbers due to his fighting style, many will see him simply as lay & pray guy, but at least I see him as very good opponent for Woodley and GSP at WW.

I would've loved to see a rubber match between DJ and Henry but I guess the UFC is too scared of him winning it.

I think it’s a win for DJ too. Probably more interest in him in Asia

No there wouldn't be any interest whatsoever unless he fights at featherweight or bantamweight which he probably could at onefc.

Probably scrapping 125 and DJ wouldn't want to move up

Some 3 years too late, but we will finally get to see Ben against top competition, will be interesting to see how he performs.

I don't think he will get a instant title shot because:

A) Dana hates him.
B) He isn't a big draw to make up for point A.

I want to see a grapplefest between askren and one of colby/usman.

BS! They'd never do that to 'Gregor

Definitely, he is an exciting fighter and their biggest name. He'll get all the spotlight.

I think you can actually do decently well as smaller guy in Asia. Sure, over here DJ is a manlet but in Asia he isn't that much smaller than the average guys. But he definitely could move up - he's worlds above the competition there.

Oh yeah, they're definitely buddies. So probably more a move for GSP rather than Woodley.

Dana wouldn't sign him if there was still an issue and I think Dana already has a plan for him and told him the plan ahead of signing him. Whatever beef they had must've been worked out. Those two really disliked each other a lot before.

A fine was definitely coming, hope they do a small suspension but it doesn't matter - Khabib made way more on PPV numbers and that fight made him royalty in Dagestan. He also got these punks to answer for their disrespectful words and humbled them - worth more than any money in the world.

Never seen Askren fight, didn't know about him until I saw him on the JRE podcast.

Wrestler eh? GSP first, then Woodley if he wins and then superfight with Khabib if he gets the belt. Wouldn't mind a Covington trashing either.

Fact remains that One FC is the biggest market for lighter fighters outside of the UFC. Even if you include the UFC.

This is a good move for all parties.

Of course there are tall Asian kids but the census doesn't lie. My 6'2 Filipino buddy sticks out like a sore thumb among all the 5'5-5'9 dudes there

But yeah, better nutrition and growing up in stability will help grow you tall. Makes me wonder why me and my countrymen are fucking huge almost across the board despite historically permanently being in shit
