UFC Fight Night on ESPN+: Maia vs. Askren in Singapore streams exclusively on ESPN+ this Saturday, October 26, at 5:30 a.m. ET from Singapore Indoor Stadium. The main event features a welterweight matchup between Brazilian Demian Maia (27-9-0) and American Ben Askren (19-1-0, 1 NC). UFC Live returns to ESPN2 on Friday night, providing fans with exclusive takes on the biggest news, stars and stories tailored to UFC Fight Night Singapore. In addition, every single fight on the card will be available for individual fight-by-fight replay on ESPN+ immediately following the fights.
In the UFC’s fourth visit to Singapore, two of the best groundfighters in MMA history will face off as No. 10-ranked Demian Maia looks to become the first fighter to submit No. 11-ranked Ben Askren. Maia already holds the record of second-most wins in UFC history at 21, with victories against fighters including Jon Fitch, Chael Sonnen and Jorge Masvidal – who recently handed Askren his first career loss. Askren will be looking to bounce back by taking on the former UFC title challenger at both welterweight and middleweight to prove who is the best grappler in the welterweight division.
