Ben Askren Grinds Out Big Win at One FC Global Rivals

Oh, so you think the funk is your ally? You merely adopted the funk, dude. Ben Askren was born in it, molded by it. Askren was tossing kids on their heads with a magnificent golden moss of a fro in high school. Today was no different, as Ben Askren defeated Nikolay Aleksakhin by decision.

It was all Askren in the early rounds. Despite Aleksakhin defending and crossfacing the Funky One, Askren still took him down. He was landing soccer kicks and even got in some nasty ground and pound.

As the fight went on, it became more even in the later rounds with Aleksakhin lighting Askren up and seemed to even drop him with a well-timed intercepting strike during a takedown.

Despite Aleksakhin turning it up late, the gulf of Askren’s pressure and scoring was too far to leap over. Askren remains undefeated and on to the next challenge.

Hopefully he’ll crush something for us.
