    Not really a question but I think he should do an episode explaining to these fucking mongoloids here why GSP is the GOAT.

    Why is Ben Askren's hair so frizzy?

    How did you score Jon Jones vs Santos, and how do you think Santos' apparent success affects future gameplans against Jones, matchups and interest in super fights

    Finally, a legit question to cover on the show. Thank you. Although I might bring up Askren's hair, maybe they have an inside tip.

    * Given how quickly Lineker was cut and then fell into ONE FC's clasp, do you think this switcheroo was pre-meditated somehow? Also how will murder-death-kill fare against ONE FC top-dogs like Bibiano or Belingon?

    * A few days ago, people were calling for Rockhold to fight for the LHW title. Now, even Dana White calls for him to retire. This seems pretty weird from a sporting perspective. Is it all just the usual MMA hullabaloo, or is there a kernel of truth to both these statements?

    * A follow-up question to my question last week concerning supplements. Can't the UFC just regulate what supplements their fighters uses? That way, contamination suspensions would be nil. And they already regulate everything else their so-called Independent Contractors thinks and does, so why not this too?

    In this week's episode of The Trenches, we're asking if Jorge Masvidal went too far after knocking out Ben Askren, either with his celebration or his comments. What do you think?

    He basically was tossing dirt and planting a petunia on Askrens stiff corpse

    RIPed homie.

    Still hoping for Funky Ben to make a run doh. :)

    This 'sport' attract low IQ individuals and actions. They don't have multiple PhD's like sherdoggers.
    Some of these fighters have a few screws loose.

    He deserved every bit of it. Ben didn't even have a problem with it and said he probably deserved it.

    You know what you're getting yourself into when you're going to fight a guy you've been insulting on a professional and personal level for months.

    Short injuring someone in the arena or the fighter who lost, I don't understand what "going too far" is to be honest.

    Like you won, do whatever you want

    He didnt assault him any further physically.

    The post-fight mocking should be ok if pre-fight trash talk is a thing.

    Mas said it best, the ones who talk the most should be able to take the harshest backlash and there shouldn’t be anything wrong with that. Mas just fights, any other respectful opponent would’ve been different entirely how that went down celebrating.

    We didn't know Askren was ok when Masvidal taunted him with the plank drop.

    It's always too far when the fighters health is in question.

    There was nothing wrong with anything he did.
