    Following his dominant win over Ben Askren at at Beat the Street’s “Grapple at the Garden,” UFC president Dana White has expressed his interest at seeing Jordan Burroughs compete in the UFC.

    Burroughs defeated Askren by 11-0, winning by technical fall in the second period. Askren, who is undefeated in MMA and made his UFC debut against Robbie Lawler back in March, was an accomplished freestyle wrestler himself before transitioning over to MMA after competing at the 2008 Olympic games.

    Talking on The Jim Rome Show earlier this week, White spoke about his interest in Burroughs and the history behind his and Askren’s relationship.

    “Yeah, listen, I’m always interested in, you know, these guys that are considered the best…

    He handled Ben Askren pretty easily, so who knows.

    he better learn submisson D and some stand up..1 year of training he would beat 99% of 170 pound division .. he can literally get a takedown Any time he wants.. couple that with his pedigree and work ethic and he's a dangerous mfer..But the way he treated chael and tucked shows me he's never gonna fight.

    That's a hot take Dana, wanting a Olympic gold medalist as a fighter in the UFC :rolleyes:

    Tell you what, why don't you develop and promote some of your young up and coming fighters in the Org, rather that go get a guy who needs at least a year of legit training in striking and BJJ before he should consider an MMA career.... Or are you just going to fast track another cash grab, overlooking guys who have worked hard, all to see that cash grab fail against top tier MMA fighters AGAIN..... Fucking Moron.
