Reigning Bellator FC welterweight champion Ben Askren spoke with The Fight Nerd recently about his thoughts on the upcoming fifth season of Bellator. Ben told us about a wrestling match he had with his brother recently in Pennsylvania, then breaks down the welterweight tournament in season five and tells us who he thinks is the greatest threat to his belt.
Askren also tells us about his thoughts on Jay Hieron being the #1 contender, and gives us his opinion of Nate Marquardt. Finally, we ask him about a super fight between himself and Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard!
