Following his dominant decision victory over veteran, Nick Thompson, at Bellator 40 last night, reigning Bellator welterweight champ, Ben Askren, revealed to Sherdog that he would be moving to Milwaukee to train full-time with Duke Roufus's team, alongside Anthony Pettis, Erik Koch, and Pat Barry: "I will, for the first time in my life, be a full-time professional fighter. I am gonna move to Milwaukee to train under Duke Roufus. If you thought I was okay now, I might get a little bit better now that it’s full-time." Thompson, meanwhile, suggested that he would be retiring from active MMA competition following a 53-fight career: "I’m a fan of Ben Askren and it was an honor for this to be my last fight." -- photo via Keith Mills/Sherdog.com Bellator 40 coverage
