On Saturday at UFC 239, Ben Askren suffered the first loss of his career in devastating fashion after being knocked out by Jorge Masvidal’s flying knee in a UFC-record five seconds. It was a stunning conclusion to the most anticipated fight on the card, as well as to Askren’s undefeated run that lasted 19 fights and 10 years. Askren, the former Bellator and ONE welterweight champion, signed with the UFC last year after years of calling for his shot. Through two octagon appearances now, against Robbie Lawler and Masvidal, Askren has been mostly dominated and won his debut in controversial fashion. Which begs the question: Where does he go from here?
