THE SHIELDS-ASKREN CONNECTION: MAKING SHIELDS UNSTOPPABLE.


DSTRYR/SG is all about making hypocrisy cool again (like it used to be).  A few days ago, we big upped Mr. GSP for training with Renzo Gracie, applauding him for seeking out the best with which to train and for his drive to be the best.  We implied he has the advantage over Jake Shields for their headliner at UFC 129.

But, we now recall Jake's seemingly cut from the same cloth. Check out Jake training with 2008 Olympian and multi-time NCAA wrestling champ, Ben Askren, from back in October 2010 (courtesy of Flowrestling.com).  No doubt, Ben's got wicked takedown skills and uncanny scrambling capabilities.  

We've made our decision and we officially have no idea who's got this one.  And, we can't wait for April 30th to get here.

  1. Askrens' shot brings new meaning to 'explosive'

  2. I wouldn't say Askren's shot is explosive, every time he is wrestling he dominates so easily it looks like he is sandbagging. It is strange how in his fights he puts himself in HORRIBLE positions to be submitted constantly, but holding on to him is like trying to catch smoke in your hand.
