After Watching Georges St. Pierre at UFC 158, Ben Askren Says “I Am 100% Sure I Could Beat GSP”

Bellator Welterweight Champion Ben Askren was one of many fighters who commented on UFC 158 Saturday night, and the 28 year-old shared his thoughts on how he thinks he matches up against Georges St. Pierre. After watching his UFC counterpart defeat Nick Diaz the outspoken fighter tweeted:

After tonight I am 100% sure I could beat GSP @dukeroufus

St. Pierre once again largely relied on his wrestling and top game to hand Diaz a unanimous decision loss at the event, which was hosted by Montreal’s Bell Centre.

Asken (11-0), on the other hand, is coming off a third round, stoppage win over Karl Amoussou in January, and will fight recent tourney winner Andrey Koreshkov next.

The decorated wrestler and former Olympian directed the tweet to Duke Roufus, who has been helping Askren develop his striking and MMA game in Wisconsin.
