Ben Askren joins Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show to look back at his knockout loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239 in Las Vegas. Askren says he doesn’t have memory of the knockout, but has watched it. 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.

I’ve had the
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.
funky juggles
His confirmation bias tell him he didnt do anything wrong because it always worked before duh

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?

My question is.. why does Askren have a Shure SM7b at his house?

$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!

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.

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
