Askren is actually a lot more nicer guy than Masvidal.
Did not talk trash at all, No personal comments about his family and nothing like that. Just his confidence was oozing rather it was more of a fault of Jorge for nothing Showing up more than a couple of times.
Masvidal did what he prepared for and deserves a lot of appreciation for it but also got alot lucky for to get the fastest KO ever right at the start against an undefeated phenom.
Pin em in the cage again Askren will smoke him every single time.
u don't believe me, Can't blame u as its all heat of the moment and sheeps are actually believing In the hype of Jorge.
Askren is a legend and such as he will be remembered for the ages to come and he will show exactly why in the future not too far.
Lol bums are who follow and appreciate a guy like Jorge.
Its a matter of time before Leon or Askren himself kills the hype.

Honestly I can see through Ben. He's hurt and bitter. I think he purposely ate something during the video to seem casual and like he doesn't care, it's an old trick. The whole video he's trying to take away from Masvidal and glorifying his own loss and the fact that people are perceiving this as sportsmanship is funny. I think flying knee or not the result would be the same. He didn't beat robbie lawler. I would have liked to see them actually fight not a fake submission. Like Masvidal said, "he's not funny" "he's a scrub" His trash talk is weak and his delivery takes forever. It's like listening to that dorky kid in class who loves the sound of his own voice yet isn't funny at all. Lastly he's never beat an actual contender all those guys he beat nobody has ever heard of. Whoever he fights next..the result will be the same. If he really wanted to show some sportsmanship in his loss he would do what he should and that's finally shut the fuck up.

Ben's humility has won me back as a fan. Especially admitting he deserved the negativity due to his past history of taunting others.
I wish he'd do some boxing and put on a bit of muscle, ..but hey..

Well first of all "confirmation bias" should not come into play.He SHOULD be adjusting to every single fighter and have some predictions and CHANGE his approach.It is way too SIMPLE to simply worked 19 other times.How often do fighters come outwith flying knees,very seldom but i feel every fighter should spend a minute in a feeling out process and not commit to anything.A perfect example is that fight,if Jorge misses,Ben may have very well got on top way sooner than expected so it was a risky move by Jorge.

@Juanita Stew Aren't you a bit too hard on him? He's a good fighter and that's a fact. He's just probably not a top 10 UFC fighter but I'm sure he would have done well a bit lower , fighting top 20 UFC fighters or something. However he did not want that. He's on the end of his career and doesn't have the time to start climbing up the stairs starting too low... so he smart talked his way higher where he ended up getting his wings burned.

You got to love someone who makes a mockery of MMA. His first fight was more embarrassing than this fight. there's a reason why he handles it so well he's the only person to know good and well that he NEVER belonged in the UFC

I find it funny how some fighters are cocky before a fight and once they go through a loss they all act all humble and righteous and the fans go all crazy saying how much they respect the fighter who was cocky and disrespectful in the first place
MASHT - - 3 dagar sedan
Yeah I would agree with you if this was a normal loss. But this loss, man, it is extremely humiliating not anyone can show up and talk about his mistakes especially when you get knocked out within 3 seconds. He said some stupid shit but he does admit it so this means he has changed alot but we will see only in the future if this is true.

Lets be fair, Masvidal pulled of a trick, a peek a boo. Rematch would mean an actual fight which Ben would win, yes would be boring grappling etc but Ben would win
Harry ABB
Harry ABB - 3 dagar sedan
@Colorationz Well it is a matter if opinion, that is the point. Masvidal admitted he tricked Askren by holding his hands behind his back acting casual etc then on the bell just running into him with a flying knee. If that does not happened in a rematch it would not of course then i do not see how masvidal beats askren as he does not have a great ground game he would punch he he would beat up askren somewhat but at some point askren would take him down tire him and submit him or choke him or simply outpoint him. This is MMA not a back yard fight
Colorationz - 3 dagar sedan
@Harry ABB I dont buy into arguments that just because a fight ended quickly it was a fluke. If Masvidal caught him with a flying knee at the beginning of the 3rd round would it still be a peek a boo? It would have been fun for it to go on for longer but I don't think you can just say it that Masvidal pulled off a nice trick and its inevitable he would lose the rematch if it dragged into the later rounds.

This video is one of the most watched videos of Ariel Helwani's MMA show. In one week over 2.2 million views and over 20,000 comments. It's obvious that Askren is one of biggest draws in the UFC today.
