Ben Askren Explains Decision Not To Fight At ONE Championship 32

ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren set a ground-rule in regards to how much weight Luis Santos could gain before facing off Friday night at ONE: Pride of Lions.

Santos failed to follow that mark, and Askren pulled himself from the planned main event.

The bout was a rematch from a previous fight that ended in a no-contest after an accidental eye-poke. Santos missed weight on Thursday, but Askren was content to still compete if he weighed in under 190 pounds the day of the fight.

So unbelievable you have to hear it for yourself!
