09:40 PM ET 10.04 | Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren is currently looking for work after his contract with the Viacom owned mixed martial arts promotion. Unfortunately for Askren, the Bellator contracts allow the promotion to match any offer that he receives and they haven't been afraid to play dirty in the past. This has caused a delay from the UFC as they look for the right offer, but in the meantime the undefeated welterweight appears to be considering retirement. UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, who is a training partner of Askren's at Roufusport, says that the former Olympic wrestler is considering retirement now that he is sitting on the sidelines and waiting for a new contract.
