Hey Chael...I can’t let you get close....
Someone gave Ben a free win over Lawler. The rematch should happen before the Jorge Masvidal fight. The only reason that Tyron Woodley said he would fight was to save BEN ASKERENS ass on the rematch knowing that Tyron Woodley would never fight Lawler again. Bunch of weak guys.
Ben said Masvidal doesn't even mention him cuz he's scared-well,he's far from scared-and he DID mention Ben a lot and said how he'll break his ribs etc,Ben must KNOW that Jorge aint scared.Can;t wait.
Well,Ben is a much better ground wrestler than Masvidal-but not as good striking,so that's why I think he'll beat Masvidal.It's a great fued ,though-so interesting.With this fight we should find out how good Ben is -or is not.Lawler fight didn't really answer that question!
Ben Askren reminds me of corporal hicks in the movie Aliens during their 'combat drop', all the other soldiers are screamin and hootin and hollering about being badass soldiers while hicks just falls asleep. His level of confidence compared to the other fighters is like the difference between a veteran soldier thats been in 50 firefights to a veteran soldier thats been in 1000+ firefights. Ben treats the interviews like normal people treat a train ride into work, its just something you gotta do in order to get to work, it bores him lol. He sees fighting other world class fighters in a cage like normal people see punchin a timecard, hes just goes to work, beats some dudes ass, then goes home to eat dinner with the wife and kids. Its like the most normal thing in the world to him. They all dont really know what to do about Ben because they know he is the best (cept robbie, robbie was only guy who coulda beat ben, the rest got no shot).
It's the underdog Ben we always cheer for the underdog
its cuz Ben's the goat!
I like Ben because:1. He is a clean fighter2. He says exactly what he thinks (no bs)3. He makes me laugh (great at trolling)4. He is a good person
Ben is the real deal unlike you Chael remember when wanderlei punked you?
Ben seems like the furthest thing from a regular guy.
I've met Ben in person, super nice guy
Are you a double leg ninja?
Not trying to throw shade, but why do you think u lost to Jeremy horn 3x but u dominated Silva for 4 plus rounds, you beat bisbing... Just seems so weird that u lost to a journey man fighter3x.....
He's the new Chael there's your answer lol
@chaelsonnen mic is clipping again homie.
ESPN+ is so awesome. It rules.
Please fight in Chicago this summer.
Usman would destroy Askren, he would not be able to take Usman down.
Askren good-looking, articulate, smart guy who's gone undefeated, add to that his controversial win over Lawler where he almost got finished, and he seems to be a nemesis to Dana White. We all know Dana can't stand the guy and never wanted him in the UFC; the fact that he's there now is like a win against authority. I think that's why people are interested the most
BEN ASKREN DESERVES A MAIN EVENT!ASKREN=AWESOME!
Ben Askren is a chad with mic skills and Dana can't handle it
Why does "Marty from Nebraska" change the way he talks when he is trying to be a fake thug? Where is your Nigerian accent bro? #Identity crises
I clicked because of Ben Askrens name. Your right Chael.
the London Q&A was the cringiest thing in the world. As a British person I was deeply ashamed. Where did they gather so many morons together to be in that crowd?Why did everyone hate ben so much when he has never been anything but nice? the worst viewers should think of ben is that he is dorky or boring compared to the likes of Conor McGregor etc. But is that enough to warrant how that crowd behaved and the verbally illiterate way they chose to communicate it?
Please! Get to the bottom of it, and please! Copy him. I'll give you a hand, to the best of my ability. People are sick of modern alienated life. Everyone wants to feel connected and appreciated. A media figure who can be generous and empathetic to his fellow humans without seeming like he is patronizing, lame, and full of crap is rare and wonderful. Unfortunately, Ben's chosen profession means he has to continue winning in the cage to maintain credibility and place in the spotlight--hopefully he can do that. But from the perspective of a regular mma fan, his essential message is you don't have to be a bully and a narcissist to be a winner. You can have feelings, show your vulnerabilities, admit you need others to succeed, and other people will continue to support you. Keep up the good work, brother!
Tony Ferguson the type of guy to give his post-fight speech in sign language
'Two plus two does not equal four' - undefeated UFC champion Chael P Sonnen
Chael doesn't have to copy anyone
There's no doubt that Ben Askren would run right thru usman
woodley literally had 2 draws against Wonderboy beat 44 year old Maia by boring decision beat the overhyped Till and than got destroyed by Usman who possibly isn't even top 5 and some consider him top 5 lol
After gsp became champion he became a boring fighter. Ben Askren is boring too.
He's getting the job done with no muscle tone at all , where 99% of all fighters are busting out muscles and squeezing into lighter div to get advantages ... RespectJones is like GSP .. Successful but boring as hell
Slow down on videos Chael. Save your commentaries for worthy issues keep your perspective valuable.
Chael "the business" Sonnen
Chael, "We're gonna copy him!", literally made me laugh out loud! Thank you Chael! Chael, you are largely already doing what Ben Askren does, you've toned down the trash talking since your fighting days are in the past and it is a good fit! Stay humble and genuine and you're half way to copying Ben Askren.Ben being a Christian and the elite unorthodox grappling adds to Ben's appeal exponentially!
That begs the question... Just how handsome is Ben Askren??
Is Chael in Love with Ben Askren , I think he could be......
Diaz brothers are the epitome of wasted talent.
As a former high school wrestler and UFC fan since UFC 1, I'm pumped to see a super wrestler dominate again.
Ben > the diaz sisters
Sometime soon Ben is gonna get served a three piece with a soda.
Ben Askren beats people up like he is their dad... stole that but I haven’t seen a truer assessment of his fighting style. Like a dad who puts you in a headlock until you say uncle lol
Trophy room Chael
Ben Askren is a breath of fresh air to serious MMA fans. He also represents folk style wrestling at an elite level, and has brought a lot of wrestling fans to view the UFC and MMA in general.
I like Ben Askren because he's a fellow Christian and he's genuine and humble and has an elite unorthodox grappling style that works.People like it when we see a genuine man. All this trash talking model in MMA is fabricated junk. Whatever happened to respect and humbleness in Martial Arts and MMA? Ben Askren is a breath of fresh air to serious MMA fans.
Ben, needs to be in a boxing ring !
Chael Sonnen for the next Batman? Fuckin works for me.
Askren is working because he has a dad bod. Regular 30+ men can relate to him and root for him to win because it gives them cope that they can win fights against muscle bound UFC mutant killers like Robbie Lawler as well.
He is the goat, people just haven’t realized it yet
Why does this dude always sound like someone's pissed off Dad
Ben is popular cause like his fans , he’s a arrogant dumbass internet troll, yet to talk to someone who actually enjoys that big Curley headed bitch
I wasn’t bothered about Ben in the ufc before but he’s actually great lol so funny. Really like the guy even though he dresses like a tool haha
Ben Askren has already stated he just wants to fight the best of the best fighters for money. Thats what he said his motivation was.
Can’t explain it but I just really like Ben Askren
Y are you always tryin' to make a big show out of every little thing ?
Uncle chael i got an idea that i would love to share it with youWhy dont you make a podcast with Josh koscheck i would love to see koshcek after a long time from not hearing anything at all from him all the best
Once again ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls; Mr. Chael P Sonnen!
" Marketing " the sport .......
I'm a simple man. I see Ben Askren i click.
Don't underestimate the power of Joe Rogan...
Tony Fergeson the type of guy to make a restraining order tap out (Herb Dean as ref)
The "Ben Askren Experience" has already been done. It was called the "Chael Sonnen Era" what inhale to offer you is this...... Ben Askreb is Somnen 2.0 just curlier
Ben "all sorts of trouble" Askren
Chael you got horseshoe up your ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Money 💰 Mayweather all the way!
Askren is the new Floyd Mayweather. People are paying to see him lose. Think about it.
Now thets a Ass grin
I disliked this video, not because it is objectively bad, but because I hate your voice and why waste people's time on negativity. I just get the impression you need your ego stroked with a voice like that.
Personally, it's because he's a guy on the outside who kept winning but was easy to criticize and you kinda just wanted to see if he would lose against 'real' competition in the UFC. Now that he's here, he's getting the media that we're watching and it turns out he's someone who can win a crowd. Dude's charming as hell and there's something inspiring about a 'Joe Everyman' beating all of the roid ragers and who's not afraid to say what he thinks, even if it's a negative towards himself.I never thought he's win me over, but he has.
When Ben askren finds out Chael doesn't think hes handsome. Boom. Roasted.
He openly shit on Dana White on the Joe Rogan podcast, everyone wishes they could that
He's nonchalant, eloquent, has interesting things to say (in contrast to 99% of athletes,) and MOST importantly he is reasonably intelligent, as opposed to most meathead/simplistic fighters.
I find it odd that were watching a video about Ben askren and the majority of the comments are about Chael Sonnen that should tell you something right there
Ben is hype he didn't beat robbie. He will be exposed he comes down on Coby for doing the exact same thing he's doing he's following the McGregor model but yet comes down on Kobe for trying to do a similar model where he's the bad guy copying the bad guy by himself Ben is going to be exposed at the higher levels he barely got past Robbie Lawler who is not at the top of his game at this point in time in his career and he wants to attack the top of the food chain he's all hype he fought a bunch of nobodies I'm sick of hearing about him comments please
Bet your Askren it's successful!
Is Ben going to be the Welterweight Champ? 🤔
The answer is that Ben Askren is Chael Sonnen 2.0
And they day women are dramatic...
Watch the bully become the most hated fighter ever when he touches the belt. He has a following cuz he's a success story. When he succeeds he will be the enemy. His personality is shite and his mo is kicking people when they're down. Watch.
He is not to be denied.
Joe Rogan plain and simple. Joe promoted the hell out of Askren.
Fire the camera guy please. He or she failed to show Chael’s UFC and Bellator belt in the shot
that dummy just wants a great pay day
Ben will not win a UFC title! He fell into lucky against Lawyer! He's overrated & over hyped!
askren talks shit like he is gsp,he is not theres a difference between a good fighter and a great fighter...
Does anyone remember who Chael is fighting next at Bellator? I remember Ariel making an tweet about it but i can't find it.
Tony Ferguson is the type of guy that can't name a Skynyrd song!
Thanks for the vid sir.
I think you hit the nail on the head, he’s an “Everyman” and he’s having fun he speaks it how he sees it and he’s backed it up so far.
The last sentence he said! 😂😂
Hey chael, shut up
chael “my voice gets squeaky when i say point” sonnen
ben askren is a breath of fresh air for the ufc. everytime i see ben, he just gives me that happy relaxing feelin. something about ben . he’s special motherfcker 🤣🤣
Most people are social mutants, fighters included. Askren isn't, so he stands-out.
