Ben Askren was crowned Bellator’s season 2 welterweight tournament winner after putting on a dominant wrestling display against Dan Hornbuckle.
The experienced and well rounded Hornbuckle was seen to be the toughest challenge yet for Askren who’s still a relative newcomer to the sport, but that proved not to be the case as he showed suffocating control over his opponent on the mat and was rarely threatened by his opponents dangerous submission game.
Askren will go on to fight current Bellator welterweight champion Lyman Good in season 3 later this year.
