Askren believes he would’ve earned a title shot with a win, but doesn’t think that Masvidal will get one vs. Kamaru Usman despite the flying knee knockout.

Pleasure of beating up Jorge and banging his old man. So I have a lot of respect for Ben

Ben's a good guy IMHO. Honest, funny, and surprisingly humble in defeat.

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 say.it 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.

Mhh, no real other sign of life from Ben. ¿Is this Video a Deepfake to cover the incident?

$210,000 & he doesn't remember how he made it! My opinion of him has changed a little bit. He can still be a cock! I don't like arrogance!

On how Ben Askren handled this super tough and heart breaking loss, you gotta love him. Much respect from this dude.

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

First time to see his side of things, and I gotta say, this loss made us see this nice guy behind those ignorant/trash talking fighter that he was.
Respect!

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

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.

It almost looks fake the way he bent down to trap his legs...he was looking at the floor the whole time and ran head first right into a Cuban Jesus with a knee running even faster.....

Ariel.....really? "Do you regret your decision to go low?". That's inferred like a muthafucka...
