"Doesn't catch on." Former Bellator champion is not impressed with Makhachev

Ben Askren, former UFC fighter and former Bellator and ONE champion, commented on Islam Makhachev's win against Dustin Porier. While speaking with Daniel Cormier, Askren responded when asked if he thinks it's unfair that people aren't giving Islam full credit after this win.

"Yeah, but I have a different perspective on it - people just love Dustin Porier. He's a really nice guy. And Islam doesn't hook the audience like Khabib did. They are similar in communication style and manners, but Islam doesn't hook".

Recall, Makhachev beat Puryear by choke in the fifth round.
