World top welterweight Ben Askren, the current ONE FC Champion, will take on Luis “Sapo” Santos on April 24, 2015 in Manila, Philippines.


Apex Sports Agency announced on Facebook that the American Top Team member had agreed to the bout.

Askren is a decorated Olympian with wrestling skills that have transferred to MMA and made him one of the most successful and world-reknowned fighters. The Roufusport rep is undefeated, and since joining ONE FC he has gone 2-0 with first round finishes of Bakhtiyar Abbasov and former Champ Nobutatsu Suzuki.

Sap also joined ONE FC last year and the massive Brazilian striker finished Abbasov with a highlight reel KO in under a minute. The Bellator and WEC vet is undefeated in three years of competition and has accumulated a massive record of over 70 fights.

This will be an obvious grappler-versus-striker match, and one heard the world ’round.
