Bellator officials are close to naming a date and venue for a season-five title fight between welterweight champion Ben Askren (8-0 MMA, 5-0 BFC) and recent tournament winner Jay Hieron (22-4 MMA, 3-0 BFC).

And if officials get their way, it'll take place on the campus of the University of Missouri, where Askren won two NCAA Division I national wrestling championships.

But as Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), there could be some hurdles.

cept I am no where near looking forward to the match up, especially with a guy who lost two in a row(if you catch my drift) fighting for the title.

Askren should take this easy. Heiron can't stop the take downs and will lose if he can't keep it standing or get an unlikely take down himself. Askren at lightweight would be sick.. Heiron is a good wrestler, but not as good as Askren.

I don't know... If it goes to the Bellator judges Hieron probably wins.
