VIDEO: Agilan Thani vs Ben Askren welterweight title fight


Malaysian MMA fighter Agilan Thani took on USA’s Ben Askren at the co-main event at the One Championship: Dynasty of Heroes on Friday night.

The fight was called by Agilan, who challenged defending world welterweight champion Askren for his title after defeating Taiwan’s Jeff Huang earlier this year.

The 21-year-old Malaysian fighter fought with great mettle and tried to hold on for as long as he could.

However, after 2 minutes and 22 seconds, Agilan tapped out, submitting to Askren’s arm-triangle choke.

Ben Askren continues to reign as the One welterweight world champion, and says he looks forward to meeting Agilan again in the future.
