Bellator Fighting Championship's reigning 170-pound champion has been, for lack of a better word, untouchable.
Oh, sure, Ben Askren's been tested, if you consider "tested" to be a couple guys taking some rounds against him. Jay Hieron even got a judge to say he beat him. But for the most part, it's been smooth sailing for the standout wrestler.
And maybe that's why Bjorn Rebney is starting to get excited about the near future for his welterweight roster.
