Bellator’s newly-crowned welterweight champion, Ben Askren will met Nick ‘The Goat’ Thompson in a non-title bout at Bellator 40. The event is expected to take place on April 9th at the First Council Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma.

Ben Askren’s road to the title started during season two’s welterweight tournament, running through Ryan Thomas twice then Dan Hornbuckle in the finals to earn a shot at Lyman Good the next year. He made the most of his opportunity, earning a one-sided unanimous decision over Good in October of last year.

Nick Thompson has seen better times in his long MMA career, currently on a three-fight losing streak. He last suffered a vicious knockout loss against Taisuke Okuno at Sengoku Raiden Championships 14 last August. Thompson’s last victory came in February of 2009, when he defeated current Strikeforce title contender, Paul Daley by unanimous decision at Maximum Fighting Championships 20.
