The former Bellator MMA and ONE Championship welterweight champion, as well as former Olympic wrestler Ben Askren’s hopes of winning the UFC welterweight title, had suffered a major setback when he was brutally knocked out by Jorge Masvidal back at UFC 239. However, not one to give up easily, Askren is looking to ‘bounce back quickly’ from that devastating defeat.

Askren recently told MMA Fighting in an interview that he believes the myth of his invincibility is now shattered, but he can quickly recover and bounce back from it. He also revealed that he believes the BMF title fight works as a great marketing angle for both Diaz, Masvidal and even for the UFC. Here’s what he had to say:

Honestly, I think it works from a marketing angle, I don’t love either one of the guys, but I think it definitely works from a marketing angle. They pitched it correctly, and I think it makes sense.

What I said explicitly was I wanted to come back to see if I was the best in the world, in those five seconds, we didn’t find that out. We found out Jorge has a fantastic knee and that I’m not invincible, but we didn’t find much else out. I think I can bounce back from that pretty quickly and hope that it happens.
