Ben Askren Retires From UFC So Maybe Now We’ll Get To See Him Challenge Disc Golfers Full-Time

Ben Askren has promoted disc golf throughout his mixed martial arts fighting career, and after announcing his retirement from the sport on Monday, the 2011 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship runner-up may have more time to hit the course.

Our immediate thought went to the potential match-up of Askren and Brodie Smith taking on Paul McBeth and Simon Lizotte in doubles, but Askren’s bad hip may delay that showdown.

Askren has a disc golf course on his property and continues to act as an ambassador for Discraft. We think we’ll see more disc golf content in the future.

    Benn started playing disc golf in the '90s but has somehow never gotten any better. He lives in Decatur, Georgia and cares too much about Atlanta United and UNC basketball. Email him at bennett@ultiworld.com
