ONE Championship welterweight titleholder Ben Askren put an exclamation point on his MMA career with one final dominant performance in his retirement fight.
Askren (18-0) needed just 57 seconds to score a TKO win over Japanese notable Shinya Aoki (39-8) in the main event of today’s “ONE Championship 65: Immortal Pursuit.” The event, which took place at Singapore Indoor Stadium, streamed as an online pay-per-view in North America.
Askren, 33, leaves behind a decorated MMA career that includes an undefeated record with long title reigns in both ONE and Bellator before that.
