    I don’t hate Askren, he took the Loss with humility & in stride. If you suffered the fastest Knockout loss in UFC History would you go on a podcast the day after and talk about it? Probably not. Atleast he took it in stride, can’t wait too see if he bounces back against DM. As for Jorge, he’s deserving of a title shot, but the fight with Nate will be better forsure than a fight with Usman.
