Ben Askren Defeats Jake Herbert in Midlands Super Match

Ben Askren has become an electrifying mixed martial artist but he must've lost some his wrestling touch along the way. He clearly outwrestled 2009 freestyle world champion Jake Herbert in this folkstyle rules match at the coveted Midlands wrestling tournament on Thursday afternoon, but that ol' "Funkmaster" flare just wasn't there. On another note, since when did college wrestling tournaments start holding "super matches?" It looks like the submission grappling/jiu jitsu tournament fourmat has found its way into the amateur wrestling arena. Anyway, if you can manage to get past the poor video quality, you might make it through this video without yawning because it was very boring. But don't say I didn't warn ya!
