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.

we didnt even get to see any actual fight between the 2 of them. I'd like to see a rematch with an actual fight in there; and with that concluding in a KO, I will def give Masvidal props as would be deserved, but not like this kind of lucky KO. Sorry, just cant do it errr give it, not like that.
fastest KO in ufc history, sure, but it was luck and coincidence together. ya ok he meant to start with a flying knee, but the fact that Askren was going for the legs and take down is what made it so gnarly and vicious. I fukin laothe when guys act like that was what they intended to do bc its not. I cant believe everyone shitting their pants over a lucky fluke KO, and now this total champ of a chump gets to have legendary status in the record books bc Askren coincidently went for legs at same time this douche did a flying knee. ughh makes me lightheaded. I bet he doesnt want to give Askren a rematch bc he knows it will not go down the same way.

Floyd Mayweather got screwed over at the 1996 Olympics losing, getting a bronze medal. He turned pro that same year and retired in 2015 undefeated.
