It would appear that ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren is ready to hang up the gloves.

Nissi Icasiano recently reported over Twitter, “ONE Championship chairman Chatri SItyodtong just announced that Ben Askren will be sharing the cage with Shinya Aoki on Nov. 24 in Singapore.

“Aoki will be moving up to welterweight to challenge Askren for the title. According to Sityodtong, this will be Askren’s final career fight.

“Sityodtong also bared that Askren has decided to retire after the fight to become an executive at ONE Championship.”
