One of the biggest title fights in Bellator history now has a date.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with sources close to the event that undefeated Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren (8-0 MMA, 5-0 BFC) will meet recent tournament winner Jay Hieron (22-4 MMA, 3-0 BFC) at Bellator 56.

The event takes place Oct. 29 at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan.

The night's main card airs on MTV2 (and in high-definition on EPIX), and the prelims stream on Spike.com.

Your Funky Ben is the most boring fighter. Its always a wrestling match with him. Take 'em down and maul them = BORING. Askren is a great wrestler, but MMA is not wrasslin'; learn striking, submissions, Judo throws like Uchimata, Seionage, etc. (not just single & double leg takedowns and then smother the opponent with FUNK). I will watch free MMA, and hope Ben has learned something other than the smother.

Way off base here Funky is always changing position and actually hitting somoene as he controls them...Hes working his stand up at the Roufus camp...

Hes the only guy who could come in and beat GSP with wrasslin!!!
