Askren got whooped on because he was flat out worse in every area, especially health.
Love the guy and what he does/is doing for our sport, but I only see 2 people being able to defeat JB this next year, and one of them are domestic (Nolf).
I joke, haha. Dake. Dake is the only guy I see being ABLE to defeat him. Doesn't mean he will, though.
Wouldn't that be something. Dake, who could have been the 2nd greatest 74 kegger US guy of all time, has his Prime years bookended by a better version of Burroughs...
