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.
However after 16 years in the sport and 50-odd professional fights later, Jorge Masvidal now wants to get paid. He is riding on two back to back brutal knockout streaks. Speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, he said he needs a lot more money to fight.
“I need more money, I need a lot more money…….What the f***,” He said. “All these years and I am still putting up amazing fights for you people, my body has been the same since the USADA started testing,”
“I am like a f****** relique in this B**ch, You know what I am saying…….Enjoy the fastest KO in the world….You are welcome MMA community,” Masvidal concluded.
