Former ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren has officially been traded to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in exchange for former UFC flyweight title holder Demetrious Johnson. Now Askren has come forward to claim the top three fighters in his sights for his massive octagon debut.
Speaking on UFC on FOX, former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping asked Ben Askren to give his top three opponents in “a perfect world.” Aksren then revealed that he really wants to fight undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former two-division champion Georges St-Pierre.
However, Askren is now targeting a fight against former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till.
“If it were perfect world, I’d go GSP and Khabib and then we’ll see.” Askren said. “I know it’s not perfect, so who I’m really shooting for first is your fellow countryman Darren Till.”
