Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren faced each other in a Welterweight clash earlier tonight (Sat., July 6, 2019) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, streaming online via ESPN+.
Masvidal casually walked forward BEFORE BURSTING INTO A SPRINT AND JUMPING INTO A FLYING KNEE THAT ABSOLUTELY OBLITERATED BEN ASKREN!!! Masvidal jumped into the strike with so much force that he crushed Askren and flew past him. There was no real need for a follow up though, as Askren was deep in Dreamland.
Just like that, Jorge Masvidal ended the hype train of Ben Askren and recorded the fastest knockout in UFC history. That’s the risk of being one-dimensional — Masvidal knew exactly what Askren was going to do and made him pay.
Result: Jorge Masvidal defeats Ben Askren via first-round knockout
