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 was so happy when Jorge knocked him out cold because he deserved every second of it, regardless if it was five seconds. Super satisfying. With that being said, still gotta give Ben respect for taking this loss like a champ. I mean he could've went to the Ronda Rousey route and pursue a sob story of trying to end himself but he didnt. Still 19-2 which is still impressive.

To me, I feel as tho that fight needs a retake. I mean, what happened, happened. But, there was no time to fight. I am loving the hype train that is Jorge masvidal, but that was 100% luck, and even Jorge believes so. He too, wanted to fight for the other 14+mins left in the fight. Ben obviously is an intellectual and did what he had to, to make the fight high anticipation. Jorge is a 100% purist fighter who likes to dislike his opponent. He doesn’t get the hype at all, not because he is dumb, just so focused he doesn’t see the profit of hyping the fight for business value. NOW he does, (kinda funny Colby), which makes me laugh. All up in the social media and in robes at other fights. I say run it back and see what happens after 5 secs. And again, I am not an Askren fan in the least, but enjoy his business value in the UFC. Jorge has value too, but only until he loses. Then what?

I too would have loved to see this fight play out longer. Everyone knows Jorge would destroy Ben while standing up. But if Ben managed to get him to go the ground like he did every other previous opponent, who knows what ends up happening. I would love to see Ben come out of retirement to fight Jorge again but I don’t think there’s a chance that ever happens unfortunately.

Come on Ariel the best bet to make is that there is someone somewhere that can easily knock your block off. For ANYONE.

Actualy I've herd that before when you don't tense up in like a car accident you don't get injured as bad. ( fam got hit by drunk driver and totaled his pickup, as it happens he was changing radio station and ended up not getting hurt at all.) So the fact he has no marks even from the punches to his face after he was out cold he didn't get hurt just reinforces it.

10:36 I don't like that he said he didn't do anything wrong. When someone is running at you you need to either attack or get out of the way, but even with someone as good as Darren Till his reflex only got him part way out of the way and got his nuts hit.

His name is not "George". Its Jorge. Pronounced Hor:hey or Xor:xeh, and the fool knows that. I guess getting knocked out in less than a second did nothing to teach him about respect. Fk Ben Askren.

I'll be honest, this dude handled such a humiliating loss in about the best way possible. I didn't like this guy at ALL going into the fight and disliked him even more immediately after it, but this interview definitely softened me up a bit on him. Just taking that shot to the chin like a champ and understanding there's more to life ... yeah, a class act, even if he's not the best fighter compared to Jorge. Well done sir.

Immediately Leaning your head forward while someone's rushing you (especially a striker) is not good technique. Even it's worked before. Each situation should be treated accordingly.
