Scott Jorgensen on quest for UFC bantamweight title. "There's nothing I'm gonna face in the UFC cage that I haven't faced in the Boise State wrestling room or going up against guys like Johnny Thompson from Oklahoma State." So says Scott Jorgensen, 29, a three-time Pac-10 conference wrestling champ for Boise State who has made a successful transition from the college mats to a professional career in MMA.

Hitting the mat at age 8:
Scott Jorgensen was introduced to wrestling at age 8. "I loved wrestling. No one else to rely on. I really liked the idea of having to count on myself, & not having to depend on a team to get better or have success." In H.S. in Alaska, Jorgensen was a 2x state finalist, winning a state title.

From college mats to MMA:
At Boise State, Jorgensen credited another former Pac-10 matman who made the transition from collegiate wrestling to success in his MMA career ... & urged Jorgensen to do the same. "Urijah Faber talked me into fighting," said the former Bronco 133-pounder of Faber, who had wrestled at the University of California-Davis. before launching his own successful career in MMA.

In 2010, World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) was merged into UFC, propelling Jorgensen into the top echelon of professional MMA competition. Jorgensen scored a unanimous decision over Jeff Curran at UFC 137 in Las Vegas. One MMA website's headline read: "Scott Jorgensen Uses Wrestling to Control Jeff Curran."

Prepped for anything in the cage, thanks to Wrestling:
Was the transition from amateur wrestling to MMA competition daunting for Jorgensen? "I was born to do this," continued Jorgensen. "I've been competing since I was 8. All the workouts, wins, & losses. Wrestling is the best background for MMA." "If you make it through a year of a college wrestling room, you can do well in MMA," according to Jorgensen. "By any measuring stick, with my experience at Boise State, I'm prepared for whatever can happen in the cage."

"Joe Warren is one of my best friends," Jorgensen continued, referring to yet another MMA competitor who has had success as a Wrestler. "He always reminds me, 'Remember where you came from -- WRESTLING.'" "When you're in a predicament, you dig down for what you've overcome before."

"It took me till I was 16 or 17 that I really decided to be more serious about my Wrestling. To push myself harder, go longer. You learn who you are when you are truly tired." "When you WRESTLE, you learn the importance of a strong work ethic," Jorgensen continued. "With that, you won't fail." "I put all my current success on my WRESTLING."

Tough talk:
Years of Wrestling experience have all led to his current career: "I'm not the most technical fighter, but you'll never break me." "My style in the cage is a hard-nosed approach, in-your-face, 'I'm dictating this fight,' 'I'll break you mentally before I break you physically' style," according to Jorgensen. "My fights are a War of attrition -- that the other guy's gonna give long before I would think of it." "I'm a hard-headed Wrestler who knows what I can overcome."

Perfect Preparation:
"My training routine is pretty simple. I train six days a week. I spar twice a week. Every day has some Wrestling & Grappling, do strength & conditioning work too, & striking for 30 minutes nonstop." "I model my training on how Boise State did it. Again, it all ties back to my WRESTLING roots. Hard work pays off."

Scott Jorgensen has one goal: to win the UFC title. Jorgensen's Wrestling background, relentless training & hard-nosed attitude will serve him well in that title quest ... along with another key ingredient: "I love what I do. I remind myself to have fun. This is what I want to do."

Nik Lentz ready for tough test against Bocek at UFC 140. Nik Lentz has been on a tear since he started fighting for the UFC in 2009.

UFC Fighter JOHNY HENDRICKS is one of the world's top welterweights. The former Oklahoma State wrestler is 11-1 & ranked No. 8 in the InterMatFight welterweight rankings. Hendricks is preparing for his Dec. 30 fight at UFC 141 in Las Vegas against No. 2 Jon Fitch, (also a former Wrestler) who has gone 13-1-1 in the UFC dating back to 2005, with his only loss to Georges St. Pierre during that span.

Bellator 64: Making the Grade for Ben Askren vs. Douglas Lima: [BEN ASKREN: A]: What Ben Askren does in the cage is not pretty, at least in the traditional sense. It's infuriating to fans of the sport who prefer their MMA product to be a little less grappling- heavy.

But here's the thing: Until someone can stop Askren's takedowns, he has zero reason to abandon them. He goes in the cage with one clear mission: to take his opponent to the ground & keep them there. He doesn't risk getting caught by going for submission attempts. He doesn't worry about battering his opponent with ground & pound. He simply plants his opponents on their backs & keeps them there with the best wrestling game in the sport.

It doesn't matter if you hate it, either. Askren simply doesn't care, as he showed with his post-fight interview after smothering Douglas Lima for five rounds. He's a natural heel, & he doesn't really care if you like him. In fact, he seems to thrive on hatred from fans.

Lima was a legitimate challenger, & Askren easily disposed of him. Outside of a rematch with Jay Hieron, I can't see many true challengers remaining for Askren in Bellator.
