VIDEO: Ben Askren Weighs in on BMF Championship Between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz at UFC 244

UFC 244 is fast approaching, anybody and everybody is weighing in on the main card matchup between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz. Fans and fighters alike or picking out who they think will come out on top, and welterweight fighter Ben Askren gives Masvidal the edge heading into the fight between the two UFC stars.

Askren gave credit where it was due to Diaz, saying that it was impressive that he was able to come back from his long time off to win against Anthony Pettis, but ultimately, he said he thinks "it's a fight that Jorge should be able to win."

Askren did take a historically fast loss to Masvidal back in July, so he'd know a thing or two about what he has to offer.

With that being said, both fighters have a strong chance of pulling out a victory. There's a strong chance that Saturday night's fight will provide plenty of fireworks.
