Ben Askren is no stranger to headlining in Asia.
Though Nov. 26 marks Askren’s first UFC main event, the last time Askren competed in Kallang, Singapore, he closed the show with a first-round finish of Shinya Aoki to defend his ONE championship belt.
At UFC Singapore, he meets two-time UFC title challenger Demian Maia. A poster for the event was released Monday:
The two fighters are heading in opposite directions, with Maia winning two straight and Askren most recently having been knocked out in five seconds by Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239.
UFC Singapore takes place at Singapore Indoor Stadium and the main card will air live on the ESPN+ streaming service.
