UFC star Jorge Masvidal set a UFC record Saturday — knocking out Ben Askren in 5 seconds!!!If you blinked, you missed it!!!
The two faced off at UFC 239 in Las Vegas — after months of some serious trash talk between the welterweight stars.
When the opening bell rang, Ben — a highly decorated wrestler — put his head down and went for a takedown … something Masvidal clearly expected.
Masvidal had clearly been training for that move — and came sprinting out his corner with a flying knee that connected right to Askren’s temple.
Askren was out cold before he hit the mat — but Masvidal continued to smash him until the ref stepped in and stopped the fight.
Askren eventually woke up — he was helped to the back where he was treated by medical staffers. He was later transported to a local hospital. Hopefully, he’s okay.
As for Masvidal … wow.
By the way, the previous record for fastest UFC knockout was 6 seconds.
