10-1 Andrew Leone & Bellator champ Ben Askren show wrestling techniques at Phuket Top Team

Leone is an American looking to take Asian MMA by storm. He’s already posted a 10-1 record (5-1 of which was counted by sherdog fightfinder) and he is a One FC fighter and Road FC Bantamweight tournament participant – the finals of which he’ll compete in this weekend.

Askren is the 10-o Bellator champ, and arguably MMA’s best wrestler. He’s demonstrated the monstrous dominance which one can achieve in MMA with a strong wrestling and, to be frank, little else. But that’s scarier; his potential for improvement and progression gives him almost limitless potential to embark on what could be an extraordinary career. He visited Top Team and trained, plus on camera showed some wrestling techniques with Andrew.

Here is one such video resulting from Askren’s visit.



Askren headed home to America to prepare for his next defence of the Bellator Welterweight championship, which he has successfully defended numerous times. The sky is the limit for this young, afro-haired champion.

Top Team is home to the best BJJ Phuket and Thailand itself can offer, under 3rd degree black belt Olavo Abreu and black belt / undefeated One FC contracted fighter Rodrigo Praxedes. Also available is world class wrestling, boxing and of course Muay Thai, making PTT the première camp for MMA in Phuket.

Viva la revolution! Join the team.
