Ben Askren showcased his Olympic wrestling skills last Thursday night at Bellator 33, en route to a unanimous decision win over Lyman Good. it was an entertaining fight, as Askren took most of the match under his control. It only took him 15 minutes in the first round to secure a take-down, and get on top of Good on the ground.
