    Ben Askeren: “What goes along with him not wanting to do it ...they know how those training sessions went. Generally speaking in those situations if one party wants it and another doesn’t. That tells me that there giving a very clear indication of what really happened in [those practices]. Obviously Jorge is never going to admit that. But thats what that tells me. If Jorge was beating up Colby in practice everyday and Colby wants this fight Jorge would say yes already why wouldn’t he.”


    Cant argue with that logic. If Jorge was kicking Colbys ass in practice he would have instantly said yes to the fight. Colby mentioned a few days ago that he signed for the fight but Jorge has not. Masvidal seems like doesn’t really want to fight Colby and even goes out of his way to not talk about him at all.

    He’s probably right.

    Ben's still mostly spot on in regards to masvidal despite getting decapitated in record time.

    Change my mind

    Things that happened years ago and in training - Mas has improved and took the current WW champ to a decision on short notice (with Snoozeman using the most boring, but effective, game plan ever).

    Journeyman Jorge knows his gravy train on milking his 3 Piece Combo will end if he fights Colby and loses

    Masvidal has always been a journeyman. Lol at anybody who ever bought into the hype.

    Don't worry Jorge will get around to Colby once he's done painting Florida red

    That's why GSP wanted to fight Bisping.

    I mean he's not wrong. Jorge knows he gets ragdolled and loses his hype and he wants nothing to do with it.

    Taking a grinder to a decision isn't really an accomplishment.

    Ben is better as an internet diva than as a fighter. He'll go down as the GOAT can crusher of MMA.

    Wasn't Ben supremely confident going into the fight with Mas because he knew 'what happened' when they were training together previously?

    Honestly, Ben is now like an MMA content creator and it really feels like he is demanding more credibility than he actually deserves.

    Styles make fights. Two strong wrestlers often turns into a sloppy brawl, where the guy with more power usually wins.

    When has Masvidal proven otherwise though? He got domianted by Usman who's extremely similar to Covington. At least in the fact that he's a strong wrestler at 170.

    There's no excuses to make here, Masvidal is ducking Covington obviously.

    Colby would end this hype train’s career, he’s effectively retired most top contenders of the WW division already.
