“I’ve heard he has hip issues and stuff so I can’t comment on how bad his body is holding up or not,” Masvidal said. “But as far as fighting goes, two losses can’t discourage you if you’re a fighter.”

“He brings in his own crowd, – he was a stand-out in wrestling, especially collegiate wrestling, so he did have a fan base. He did some things over at Bellator and on One FC [One Championship],” Masvidal said. “So he did have a crowd that he brought over with him to the sport, a different type of crowd.”

“But what I don’t like is we’re fighters. We’re supposed to fight, man. You got two losses, it’s no big deal my brother. Get back on the high horse, get to work and figure it out, man.”

Hip replacement surgery is kind of a big deal. Its a career stopper.

That's fine for someone like Jorge, but Askren has other ways to earn money, and he never really enjoyed fighting as much as wrestling competition

He was asked by the reporter to comment on bens retirement. I thought his response was pretty mature and mostly supportive.

If you guys can't see the subtext, I can't help you LOL. 2 losses wouldn't discourage someone "IF" they were a fighter...you're supposed to fight...not sure how bad hip really is...JESUS READ BETWEEN THE FUCKING LINES LOL.

I did as well. It basically sounded like he thought Ben had more to give competitively, and to stick around for a while.

It speaks volumes that you consider Masvidal the one who ended Ben’s career

Masvidal sure didn't help prolong Ben's career.

It speaks volumes that you think it speaks volumes.

Most interesting part of this interview is Jorge saying that Colby begged Dan Lambert to go to the White House, who then "called his Skull and Bones brothers" to make it happen. Jorge's a fucking OG!

He was very classy and told him he should keep at it. I don't see how you got a negative out of his words.
