My understanding is that Bellator will only let him go scot free is if Ben get a title shot in his first fight.  I'm not sure if UFC would do that right away.  Although I would love watching Ben fight GSP!

IMO Dana White is afraid that Ben is gonna ground and pound fools like he has in Bellator. I love watching him, but the UFC needs knockouts. They need entertainment wow and I think White is not cool with what Ben brings to the table.

If they're not cool with someone winning a fight, maybe they shouldn't call it UFC. 

Maybe they should call it WWE if they want to pick and choose who fights and who wins.  Yea, I know they're really hitting each other, but if it's just going to be for entertainment value ... I think the name should reflect that.

Dana white will not let Ben askren into the ufc anytime soon because he is not entertaining. People dont realize that the ufc is a business and dana white is greedy when it comes to money. First of Ben askrens game is to just take down people and try to get ground and pounds or boring submissions. Yeah he may seem entertaining to people who know him but hes no where near the entertainment of connor mgregor. Ben askren wouldnt get a title shot in the welterweight division because of his style. Tyron woodley would beat him, stephen thompson would, and other ufc fighters.
