Ben Askren Snaps At Jorge Masvidal And Calls Knockout 'Luckiest Knee Of Your Life'

Ben Askren Snaps At Jorge Masvidal And Calls Knockout 'Luckiest Knee Of Your Life'

Ben Askren has finally fired back at Jorge Masvidal, telling him, "I made you famous".

At UFC 239, Masvidal knocked out Ben Askren with a stunning flying knee in a record-setting five seconds after practicing the maneuver just 48 hours before the welterweight encounter.

The highlight reel KO propelled Masvidal to stardom but brought about Askren's demise.

The former Bellator and ONE Championship fighter would then lose in UFC for a second time against Demian Maia and ended up retiring after the submission defeat.

And two years on, a frustrated Askren replied to Masvidal saying 'Funky' "does not represent MMA" by calling the knockout "the luckiest knee of your life" and bringing up his loss to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman - who he rematches next month.

"I've refrained for 2 years, but let's be real Jorge," Askren wrote.
