ONE Championship welterweight king. Undefeated (16-0) in MMA. Bellator MMA champion. Two-time NCAA Division-I National Champion. Olympian.

There's no doubt about it: Ben Askren is one of the best wrestlers to ever transition to MMA.

Wrestling out of the University Missouri, Askren made the NCAA championship all four years of his collegiate career, winning it as a junior and as a senior. There, he was a four-time All-American and three-time Big 12 champion. He won 87 matches in a row to close out his collegiate career, collecting 93 wins by fall and a ridiculous 18 consecutive first-period pins.

The one they call "Funky" is a problem of the highest order once he gets his hands on you, and no opponent to date has cracked the code. From his championship stint in Bellator MMA to his current run atop the ONE Championship welterweight rankings, Askren just keeps winning -- and winning easily.

Saturday, he faces Swedish knockout artist Zebaztian Kadestam at ONE: Shanghai, live on FloCombat in the U.S. at 7 a.m. ET. Can Askren add some more takedowns like these to his resume?

Or will Kadestam pull off another upset inside the ONE cage and get his hands on Askren like nobody has before?

There's only one way to find out. Things are about to get wild in Shanghai. Buckle up.
