Ben Askren easily overcame the final challenge of his MMA career at ONE: ‘Immortal Pursuit.’ The American needed less than a minute to stop Shinya Aoki at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, defend his welterweight title, and register his 18th career win.

Aoki jumped guard almost immediately and Askren needed no encouragement to slam him down to the ground. The American found himself in top position and began to land hard punches from inside his opponent’s guard.

Wht a stupid fight, knew this was going to happen....Askren is like 200 lbs and Aoki is maybe 170 at the most.

Not the biggest challenge for Askren. It's a shame we never got to see Askren in the UFC. I would've liked to see how he would have performed. He definitely deserved to be in the UFC and is at least a top 5 fighter, maybe would have been higher, but we will never know.
