Ben Askren regretting loss to Jorge Masvidal: I f**ked up my life's dream! - Ben Askren

Askren was recently in a conversation with BJ Penn.com. He revealed that his life long goal was to be the best fighter in the world and since UFC is the world’s premier fighting promotion, becoming a champion in it would have helped him fulfill that goal. Here’s what he had to say:

I try not to think about it that I f****d my life’s dream. Think about this, for nine years I have tried to prove I am the best fighter in the world and am so close to doing that. So close. I let stupid Jorge Masvidal knee me in the head, I haven’t been knocked down in 19 fights, I didn’t get knocked down one time then I let this idiot knee me in the head and get knocked out. Now, I don’t get to chase the dream I had. Everything was working out so perfectly. Now you keep trying to bring up the fact that I blew it. I have accepted the fact that I blew it. But, I try not to dwell on that fact. I try to forget about it. I messed up my life’s goal. It’s not as bad as when I lost at the Olympics and realized I’d never get another shot because at this I can have another shot. But, nevertheless, you are talking about a goal of nine years in the making and I am one fight away from getting there against the guy I chose to be in that fight to get there and I blew it. My life’s goal was to be the best in the world and I was this close.
