So I think we need to talk about this. Im kinda curious what people think. I have been a guy who really thought highly of Ben through his entire career. Still think Ben would wipe the floor with Mas 9 out of 10 times. I still think he wouldve beaten Colby. And give a tough fight to Usman. And wipe the floor with Khabib. And present tricky challenge to GSP. So naturally I thought Askren would come through. Against a stronger, bigger, younger, more technically sound boxer with likely biases reffing and judging if it comes to it. Well reffing probably def played part. But Ben is saying how he has been saying he didnt care if he lost or not. And his own sparring partner thought he was out of shape, though Sonnen said otherwise. I dont think thats right. If Ben really came for a million dolllar and legit came giving no fuck what happened, how is that ethical? Is that any better than throwing a fight? I mean Ben said himself that he was carrying the promotion and I dont know if he said if he doesnt care about the outcome maybe he did but it is 110 percent true that Ben was acting all the way through he was coming to beat Paul, and in his own words 7th round tko. But if he was out of shape enough to a point where his own sparring partner was saying he was out of shape, and didnt care what happened but fought just for money and fun, is that ethical? Thats pretty sick in my opinion. Thats not right, or is it?
