Ben Askren Fighting For One FC Welterweight World Title In May

In a recent interview with Yahoo Sports, former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren revealed that he will be fighting for ONE FC gold in May. He also announced that ONE FC’s inaugural welterweight world title bout will feature Brock Larson taking on Nobutatsu Suzuki. The Larson vs. Suzuki title fight is the featured bout for the “ONE FC: War of Nations” event, which airs live from Stadium Negara in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia on March 14.

The proposed May title fight will mark Askren’s first bout with Asia’s largest MMA promotion, ONE FC.
ONE FC signed Ben Askren to a six-fight deal that spans over two years. He will also earn $50,000 guaranteed just for showing up to his first bout this May, with another $50,000 in bonus pay should he emerge victorious.

His contract also includes an incentive that specifies his earnings will increase with each subsequent fight, should he continue getting to win.
