Since being released from Bellator in November earlier this year, former welterweight champ Ben Askren has been a free agent. Unable to seal the deal with the UFC, the twenty-nine year old has decided to take a long trip to the other side of the world.
According to Middle Easy, Ben Askren is moving to Singapore to train with Evolve MMA. The news was confirmed by Evolve MMA founder, Chatri Sityodtong.
Considering that Askren has not signed with any promotions in the US yet, his stay in Singapore could be a lengthy one if he signs with a fight promotion in Asia. Hey, I’m just saying, anything is possible.
Having won all twelve fights of his professional mixed martial arts career, Ben Askren is currently undefeated. Although he’s never fought in the UFC, he’s widely considered to be one of the top welterweights in the world.
