Askren, a former Bellator welterweight kingpin, earned a shot at the gold with a first-round submission victory over Bakhtiyar Abbasov in his One FC debut in May.

Ben Askren may feel like the kid that is always picked last for kick ball back in elementary school. The undefeated, two-time collegiate national champion has the resume that should be more than enough to have landed him a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has its "official" rankings.
