Demian Maia Puts Ben Askren To Sleep With Rear-Naked Choke At UFC Singapore

Maia pulled off an incredible submission on Askren who tapped after he failed to get out the hold in their main-event welterweight bout.

Maia's now on a three-fight win streak which includes victories over Lyman Good, Anthony Rocco Martin and, of course, Askren.

The 41-year-old now holds 22 victories inside the famed Octagon, second only to Donald Cerrone who has 23 UFC wins to his name.

Askren, on the other hand, slumps to his second professional MMA defeat following his devastating loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239 in July. The ex-Bellator champion is 1-2 in the UFC since signing for the promotion.

Speaking after his second MMA defeat, the American was full of praise for Maia: "There's a reason why he's the best grappler in the division, possibly in MMA history."
