  • čas přidán 8. 07. 2019
  • 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 see How people thought Ben Askren would have gone into hiding. He still remains one of the most exiting fighters in the world & would be back stronger than ever.

    This interview was much longer than it needed to be. Everyone is talking about new found respect. I dont think they respect themselves. Hes a bitch, his actions leading up to the fight were less than savory. He's always gonna be a bitch and with or without a knockout within 5 seconds Masvidal would've hurt him for much longer and still won. Ben is weak minded (thinking shits all sweet and a joke). This is why he lost --He fell for bait. He had no real plan to fight Masvidal and this is the result. I cant respect a passively humbled loss. The fact that he's so "whatevs", to me says hes actually far more hurt by this whole thing...just because hes here now doesn't mean he wasn't on Social media before that fight pretending to be an actual opponent for a man who use to bare knuckle.

    When you talk so much shit and get knocked out the way he did all you can do is pretend the way Ben does here. We’ll see how he truly responds if he fights again but something tells me this is a facade. If it’s not a facade then he is mentally ill and someone should seriously get him some help before he does something tragic. This man is sick and needs help.

    I think he actually does need to question his game. It’s not confirmation bias to incorporate distance management and foot work into his game. If ‘closing distance’ is his only movement, he becomes predictable.

    ok you guys, if you saw Ben against Lawler. After he got slammed on his head and then he took a barrage of hammers. Big Ben not only got up came forward and manhandled Robbie. Did you see the look in Lawler,s eyes when had his hands on him then choked him out. Robbie was in disbelief that he took his best and Ben still kept COMING!!!!
