One CEO: Ben Askren to Retire After Nov

Although he's never competed in the UFC, Ben Askren has always been considered to be one of the very best 170 pounders in the world.

On Nov. 24, Askren will compete in a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) bout for the final time. In what will be a ferocious contest between two great white sharks, Shinya Aoki and Ben Askren have chose to lay it all on the line. The loquacious Askren has yet to comment on the bout. "This fight won't last 5 rounds". "Ben has made the decision to retire after this fight to become an executive at ONE", Sityodtong wrote in a Monday Facebook post.

This veritable grappler's delight match will occur at ONE Championship: Immortal Pursuit in Singapore on November 24. Over the weekend, in the main event of ONE Championship's stop in Shanghai, the seemingly unstoppable wrestling specialist added to that reputation with a lopsided mauling of Zebaztian Kadestam.

Askren, a highly decorated collegiate wrestler who holds a flawless 17-0 professional MMA record, has defended his ONE title three times to date, most recently scoring a one-sided stoppage victory over Zebaztian Kadestam this past weekend (Sept. 2, 2017) in Shanghai. Before competing under his current promoter, "Funky" was ruling the roost in Bellator's 170-pound division.
