MMA stars who were once Olympic wrestlers. Over the past few months, we've published a few articles about former college wrestlers who are now involved in mixed martial arts (MMA) competition.

1992 Gold medalist Kevin Jackson
1984 Gold medalist Mark Schultz
2000 Silver medalist Matt Lindland
2008 Olympian Ben Askren
2004 & 2008 Olympian Daniel Cormier

There are some interesting one-timers too, such as 2000 Olympic Greco-Roman Gold medalist Rulon Gardner, famous for upsetting 3x Gold medal-winning Russian superstar Alexander Karelin. Gardner competed once in MMA, getting a win.

*The honorable mentions that I can think of are "Olympic alternates" Randy couture & Mike VanArsdale.

Ben Askren meets Thompson in non-title bout at Bellator 40.

Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren will lock horns with UFC veteran Nick "The Goat" Thompson in a non-title affair at Bellator Fighting Championships 40.

A 2008 U.S. Olympian in freestyle wrestling, Askren is a 2x NCAA champion, Dan Hodge Trophy recipient, winning national titles for the University of Missouri in 2006 & 2007. Undefeated as a mixed martial artist, the 26-year-old has submitted three of his seven career victims & holds a perfect 4-0 record in Bellator competition.

"I come to fight every single time," Askren said in a release. "Whether you're good or you're bad, I still want to smash you, & it's going to be the same thing when I fight Nick Thompson. It doesn't matter what his record is. I'm looking to kick his a$$."
