    Askren is a self aware dude and I think he’s spot on with why Jorge doesn’t like him. I don’t think he crossed the line with the trash talk. It’s a part of the sport and everything he said that I’ve seen really hasn’t been bad.

  • The Peoples Labour Party

    Askrens undoing was trying to intellectualise why he was going to win the fight...
    He believed he had an advantage with his verbal intelligence and that would play on Masvidal psyche and make him doubt himself...
    Emotional intelligence is something you don't have to verbalize, you just know...
    Masvidal knew and we all saw..
    Animal! .
