Ben Askren becomes unrestricted free agent after Bellator grants 'Funky' unconditional release
Undefeated Welterweight Is Now Unrestricted Free Agent Former Bellator Welterweight Champion and undefeated mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Ben Askren is a free man. The Viacom-owned promotion has said goodbye to the "Funky" wrestler after failing to come to terms on a new deal, which essentially clears the path for Askren to sign with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), no strings attached. From Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney: "I've said it many times, Ben's a completely one-dimensional fighter who is utterly dominant in that dimension. I had a number of discussions with Ben and it became clear it was time for both parties to move in different directions. We've relinquished any right to match here and Ben can sign with whoever he chooses to sign with. Ben's been at Bellator since the start of his career, I respect him and what he's accomplished and wish him the best wherever he goes."

GSP surpasses Silva, breaking multiple records with win Saturday
Win, lose or draw, if St-Pierre can keep the fight going longer than just 39 seconds, he will break current record holder BJ Penn for the most time in the octagon–currently at 5 hours, 3 minutes, 51 seconds. The title of most victories in UFC history is currently tied between Matt Hughes, Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Anderson Silva and GSP with 19. Will St-Pierre break the tie with 20 wins, being the most victorious figter ever in UFC history? The most prestigious IMO is title defenses. Currently tied between St-Pierre and Silva at 12, GSP has a chance to surpass the current GOAT with a possible 13th title defense.
