Ben Askren could easily be #1 on this list if he had faced better competition over the last few years. Nonetheless, Askren has been downright dominant against top Bellator talents Douglas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov. There is no doubt that Lima and Koreshkov are top talents, but Askren is still in need of a signature victory over a big name opponent. Askren will struggle to find that in his new promotion One FC, but make no mistake, Askren has the talent to one day become the UFC Welterweight champion. Hopefully, the bad blood between the UFC and Bellator dies down, and the UFC  gives Askren an opportunity to compete with the world’s best because he surely is one.
