After revealing his intentions this past Saturday night, Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren (8-0 MMA, 5-0 BFC) is now a full-fledged member of the Roufusport Fight Team.
The Wisconsin-based squad today announced Askren's addition to the roster.
"Ben is a world-class wrestler, and I'm very pleased to have him joining our fight team," Roufusport head Duke Roufus stated. "I believe we’re going to help him take the next step in his career, while his wrestling will only benefit the other guys on the team."
Askren joins a roster that includes UFC fighters Pat Barry, Alan Belcher, Danny Downes, Erik Koch, Anthony Pettis and Ben Rothwell.
"I'm very excited," Askren stated. "I think Duke can do a lot for my mixed martial arts game."
