On January 26, in Whitewater, Wisconsin, Agon Wrestling Championship Presents its third MMA-style card.

The third installment of Agon WC, "The Festival of Funk" (named because of the participation of both Askren brothers, who have a renowned "funky" style), will feature four wrestling matches under Agon's hybridized folkstyle/freestyle rules.

The card includes the following:

Ben Askren(2008 Olympian, two time NCAA D I champ, 4 time finalist) vs.  Michael Poeta(two time NCAA D I finalist, three time All American)

Max Askren(2016 Olympic hopeful, NCAA D I champ, three time All American) vs.  Ben Bennett (four time D I All American)

Craig Becker(NCAA champ) vs. John Mesenbrink

This will mark the first time since high school either of the Askren brothers have wrestled in front of a fans in their home state of Wisconsin. Agon III originally was set to take place in Ithaca NY, but a match between Ben Askren and four-time NCAA champ and Cornell alumnus Kyle Dake was never finalized.

The event will be viewable via free internet video stream.
