In the main card of UFC 239, top welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal scored a brutal five-second knockout win over former Bellator and ONE championship welterweight champion Ben Askren at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

As the bell for the first round rang, Jorge Masvidal ran across the cage and smashed Askren with a stunning knee to the face which dropped him unconscious and then Jorge followed up with two punches to the face before referee Jason Herzog had to step in. The knockout was probably the most devastating one of the year and also the fastest ever in the UFC.

Now a lot of fans want Jorge Masvidal to fight for the title next and when asked by MMAJunkie in an interview if he would consider a rematch with Askren, he clearly stated that he is remotely not interested in it.

You said like like fighting, like with punches and kicks? You think that dude would fight me again?” Masvidal asked back. “We can’t speak of things that are no longer present here. That’s almost disrespectful because if someone’s dead I don’t want to talk about them. We shouldn’t talk about Ben like that, man, because that dude is no longer with us.

I can’t. That dude would have to be a maniac to sign the contract again. ‘You know what, let me give it another go at this thing with this guy.’ It’s not too keen on me, bro. There’s no way. That’ll never happen.

Do you guys want to see a rematch?
