Ben Askren makes ONE FC debut in May for welterweight title
Ben Askren was hoping his first fight for ONE FC would be for a title. It will be.
Askren (12-0) will make his promotional debut in May, and he’ll be fighting for the ONE FC welterweight title. The former Bellator MMA champion made the announcement Thursday on MMAjunkie Radio.
Askren will fight the winner of next month’s title fight between former UFC fighter Brock Larson and Nobutatsu Suzuki. That fight takes place at “ONE FC 14: War of Nations” on March 14 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
