    Never seen someone handle a loss this well before, let alone an undefeated fighter who lost the worst way possible to a piece of garbage who would be unlikely to beat him again. Dude's still giving Masvidal all the credit in the world and is completely undeterred by it. Admirable.

    Ben better get used to losing and being this humble. If he doesn't develop decent striking soon he will continue to get pieced up and dominated.

    This is a really good post, especially considering your join date, i wish more of the newer members had this attitude about MMA and MMA fighters.

    Hahaha, "deal with adversity". How pathetic. What was he supposed to do? Kill himself? Is Ben trying to convince himself that he somehow didn't fall because of his own arrogance and high opinion of himself?

    The moral of this whole story has nothing to do with adversity. It's that you shouldn't bite off more than you can chew. And if you do, at least don't talk shit.

    All the casuals I know liked the flying knee but found Masvidal to be disgusting post fight. Most of them didn’t even know about the trash talk. They just saw a guy who obviously knocked a fighter out, then go up and hit him twice, then mock him after.

    My casual coworker put it best. I felt like I was watching a world star video, what an asshole.

    Pretty sure he failed because he went face first into a knee. I don't think when the energy exchange was occurring between the knee and his face that philosophy and attitude had much to do with it.

    His last 2 fights have been the most entertaining fights he's been in, in his whole career. It's gonna suck if he LnPs a few victories in his next fights. He needs to learn some stand up.
