Ben Askren doesn't lack confidence.
The 16-0 welterweight strolls into ONE: Shanghai Saturday, Sept. 2, to defend his ONE Championship welterweight strap, but to him, the facts are already clear. He's the best 170-pound fighter in the world. No comparison.
Speaking with FloCombat Senior Editor Duane Finley in New York City, Askren compared himself to two of Bellator MMA's best welterweights, Douglas Lima (their champion) and Andrey Koreshkov. Having fought and defeated them both during his run in Bellator, Askren decided to throw some math your way to illustrate just how dominant he is.
