Ben Askren is likely retired.

"When you say retired, you never say never. If somebody offers you 10 million dollars, that's a different story but being done is where I'm at," Askren says with a laugh.

His MMA career, full of thrills.

"My wife asked me what's it like when they call your name. I said it's like a drug," Askren says.

A multi-MMA champion, and Olympian, and college and high school champion. But what some will remember is getting knocked out in seconds in his second to last fight.

"If I move an inch left or right, different story. It's a game of inches," Askren says.

Now he's expanding his Askren wrestling academy, to the south side of Milwaukee and moving forward.

"At the end of the day, I don't have any regrets," Askren says.
