            Ben askren is a class act! Love this dude. I hate that he got KOd so quick but shit happens and Jorge knew that shoot was coming and made a good move!

              Every Masvidal video everyone is dissing Askren, I know it is the same fake fans giving him props in the Askren videos.

                  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.

                              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 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.

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

                                    Much respect for the humbleness and honesty. Still glad he got knocked out lol but definitely have respect I didnt have earlier for Askren.

                                      $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!

                                        On how Ben Askren handled this super tough and heart breaking loss, you gotta love him. Much respect from this dude.

                                          You got to love someone who makes a mockery of MMA.
                                          His first fight was more embarrassing than this fight.
                                          there's a reason why he handles it so well he's the only person to know good and well that he NEVER belonged in the UFC

                                        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

                                              Yeah I would agree with you if this was a normal loss. But this loss, man, it is extremely humiliating not anyone can show up and talk about his mistakes especially when you get knocked out within 3 seconds. He said some stupid shit but he does admit it so this means he has changed alot but we will see only in the future if this is true.

Masvidal admitted he tricked Askren by holding his hands behind his back acting casual etc then on the bell just running into him with a flying knee. If that does not happened in a rematch it would not of course then i do not see how masvidal beats askren as he does not have a great ground game he would punch he he would beat up askren somewhat but at some point askren would take him down tire him and submit him or choke him or simply outpoint him. This is MMA not a back yard fight

                                                                          • Colorationz

                                                                            @Harry ABB I dont buy into arguments that just because a fight ended quickly it was a fluke. If Masvidal caught him with a flying knee at the beginning of the 3rd round would it still be a peek a boo? It would have been fun for it to go on for longer but I don't think you can just say it that Masvidal pulled off a nice trick and its inevitable he would lose the rematch if it dragged into the later rounds.
