Current Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren has talked in the past about his desire to test his skills against the best fighters in the world.
Askren, who fulfilled his Bellator contract recently, could be headed to the UFC.
In fact, the former U.S. Olympian wanted to let UFC president Dana White know that if something were to happen to Johny Hendricks, the No. 1 contender, prior to UFC 167: St-Pierre vs. Hendricks, he would be willing to step in.
Hendricks is set to face Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title from Las Vegas.
