An unprecedented deal was finalized Saturday which will bring an undefeated former world champion into the UFC while shipping one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters in mixed martial arts history off to compete in Asia.

Former Bellator and ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren will be released from his ONE contract to sign with the UFC, while Demetrious Johnson will be released from his UFC contract in order to sign a deal with ONE. ESPN first reported the news.

ONE announced the Johnson signing Saturday night...

Glad to see Askren in the ufc but it annoys the shit out of me that Demetrious has gotten so little respect. Congrats to him and by the sounds of it he has gotten quite a lucrative deal but it just annoys me that he never got the respect that he deserved.
