http://MMAWeekly.com/ -- It took Ben Askren 20 years to get as good at wrestling as he is, and that's pretty darn good. He's now working harder than ever on getting his striking game up to par with his ground game. His next chance to display the improvements comes on Friday night against Douglas Lima at Bellator 64 in Canada. Askren knows there is a tough task before him as he attempts to keep his record unblemished and the Bellator welterweight strap around his waist. That's okay. Askren has a plan... death by a thousand cuts.
