Ben Askren Really Loves Disc Golf

Fresh off of his most impressive Bellator welterweight title defense to date and his first stoppage in nearly three years, one would expect Ben Askren to get a little attention. In this case, it's not so much from the MMA media, but the disc golf media.

I can't speak to how deep and intensive the "disc golf media" is or might be, but I do know that the aptly-named All Things Disc Golf has an interview up now with the "Funky" one. For those not in the know, Askren is a damn good Frisbee (Oh my God! Don't call it a Frisbee!) hurler. He placed second at the 2011 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship. You know, while defending his Bellator title.

What is Askren's favorite disc to use? Has he got any Roufusport teammates hooked on his other-other sport? What is Ben Askren's "favorite disc golf memory"? This is the off-the-wall stuff I wish they had in the Bellator pre-fight promos.
