    Askren was on Ariel Helwani yesterday took the defeat in good humour and as well as can be expected. I don't know why a lot of people hate this guy at least he has a bit of personality about him. Noised up a lot of people since joining the UFC but it wasn't even anything that nasty heard a lot worse.

    Tony has said he’s getting bored at lightweight and pondering a move to welterweight.

    It's weight because Jorge is proper rubbing It in, Ben likes to trashtalk but it's innocent stuff, not on the same level as Chael or McGregor

    He's a bit of * but I don't like the way they have made out like he was being racist and ultra-personal, he was no worse than anyone else. From what I gather, I'm might be wrong, Ben made a comment about not understanding Masvidal's when he spoke and then Masvidal twisted this and said that Ben was attacking his ethnicity. Then you had Joe Rogan repeating the same thing and that snowballs and everyone is jumping up and down with excitement that "the * talker gets brutally KOed" I like Masvidal but he not the most intelligent of fighters and he is easy to troll.

    I’d like to see them fight again at some point. As amazing as the KO was I was quite looking forward to seeing them knock * out each other.

    Can’t see Askren ever letting that fight become a scrap. He’d just try smother him for 3 rounds.

    Would love to see Robbie/Masvidal after Robbie fights Colby.

    Is the winner potentially fighting Masvidal aye?

    Think Colby will beat Robbie but hopefully not.

    * knows mate just what I want to see.

    Canny see Dana giving Woodley the Usman rematch straight away so probably winner of Robbie/Colby vs Usman.

    Naw I know what you mean I didn’t word that correctly just meant I’d like to see a longer fight to see what would happen. Askren’s style in the cage isn’t exactly what most people want to watch.

    Think it’s a cert that Askren fights Masvidal again and you can guarantee it won’t be the same fight twice.

    Actually think Askren would be favourite, as bizarre as that sounds just now.

    I’d actually love to see these two jawing at each other.

    Jorge chasing that pay day on a win streak. I think it would be as simple as lightweight - Conor. Welterweight - Jorge.

    Masvidal has losses to Larkin and Ben Henderson and then wins against Askren and Till. He’s clearly much better against bigger guys.

    Good video that, the UFC is some organisation these days.

    A lot of people, including myself, would have baulked at the price tag WME paid, but it's starting to show through now with all these insight videos getting released. Their infrastructure is mad, all they are missing is an arena!

    The stoppages were a bit premature in the last 2 fights on that UFC card. The boy Faber was fighting had a hold of his leg when the ref called it off.
