Askren, a renowned MMA star, has been a prime grappler in his illustrious career. Throughout his MMA run, ‘Funky’ Ben relied heavily on his ground game rather than his standup ability.

On the flip side, the ‘Problem Child’ has faced non-fighters until now. And this will be the first time he will confront a veteran from the combat sports world. Paul (2-0) definitely has the advantage for obvious reasons, but the boxing debutant’s experience in combat might help him stun his more experienced boxing foe.
