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.

@Eamon Shields Yes, I have spared boxing and wrestling. There is a saying I learned in boxing "you got to set the table before you eat your dinner." So instead of just throwing a straight right (or left if southpaw) one should use jabs upstairs and downstairs and when your opponent thinks a jab is coming you give him your Sunday punch. Ben, in a very amateurish way just rushed straight into a very experienced fighter without setting the table. Jorge, even said in his post fight press that Ben, was a crotch sniffer. Jorge's camp knew this and practiced that knee. Ben should have known he wasn't fighting a cab driver and should have had a game plan that reflected that reality.

@Outgarth Loki I understand what your saying but its INCREDIBLY difficult to see a flying knee coming. Have you ever spared before ?
Outgarth Loki
Outgarth Loki Il y a 8 jours
@Eamon Shields As I see it the knee did not come from "nowhere." It cam from directly in front of Ben, which he freely and amateurishly ran directly into with no feints, or setup or any sort. As to your opinion of what could have transpired had Ben, not been so amateurish is debatable. What isn't debatable is that Ben, was flattened in record time and had to be scrapped off of the canvas with a spatula.

Outgarth Loki he got hit with a flying knee that came out of nowhere. Not saying Jorge was lucky, but he would have put up a good fight had Jorge not landed the knee

Speaking in Ben's defense, he took two shots from Masvidal and didn't even flinch. That's something.

Jorge Masvidal is an excellent fighter and deserves all the success - especially given his background, and how long he's been in the fight game - I saw early street fighting videos of his from Kimbo Slice's backyard. So anyone that comes from a humble beginning and makes it big has my support. But he has a dismissive anger about him that's a little off-putting though - which is kind of typical for guys from rough circumstances. This weird, toxic street attitude about "respect" and "being cool". These guys don't need to like each other, but the weird hatred he has for Ben - talking about how he wanted to break his face, end him, and send him to the hospital in a helicopter ... it's just weird to me, and makes me like him a lot less. Ben Askren, on the other hand, seems like a really well adjusted, happy, fun guy who just wants to have a good time, do a little fun trash talking, and give a good performance. He's obviously taking what should be a humiliating defeat really, really well - a great example to his kids and fans everywhere. We never really got to see a real fight. I wouldn't say it was a lucky knee, because it was practiced and executed perfectly and was awesome ... but it was still kind of a freak occurrence that almost never happens, and it prevented us from seeing a real competition. I still don't know who the better fighter is - and no, the knee knockout didn't prove much of anything. I definitely want a rematch between these two.
