According to mmajunkie.com, ONE FC announced today that former Bellator Welterweight Champion Ben Askren (12-0 MMA, 9-0 BMMA) has signed with the promotion. The promotion also confirmed the signings of South Korea's Dae Hwan Kim (8-0), Australia's Chris Lokteff (11-1), Strikeforce veteran Harris Sarmiento (36-25) and Bellator vet Aung La Nsang (14-9).
Askren was released from Bellator, and many had speculated that he would sign with the UFC, but while Dana White felt that Bellator was playing games with the fighter, he showed no interest in signing the former four-time All-American wrestler.
