Former ONE Championship welterweight title holder Ben Askren is now nearing his goal of making it onto the roster of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). With that in mind, the talented mixed martial artist has since come forward to make his first call out.
ONE Championship is currently attempting to negotiate a trade concerning Ben Askren for former UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson. A fighter trade has never been made by a prominent mixed martial arts promotion, though roster exchanges are commonplace within the likes of the NFL or MLB.
