  1. Fuck man, Ben is so grounded it’s inspiring; imagine being able to encourage others after being humiliated like that.

    Ben drops some gems in this interview, not even angry that Jake won and is now even more insufferable because of it.

  2. Ben has the potential to be a motivational speaker. He probably runs his own company as well, but on a more serious note, hearing all of that makes me think I shouldn’t be so hard on myself today. GSP, I’m sure, has similar words of wisdom.

  3. I’m not sure if it’s because this fight attracted non-regulars to this sub, but the comments here are shit quality compared to what I’m used to seeing here. This is stuff you’d see on YouTube.

  4. I believe I would have acted in the same way as Ben. Get paid, and you’ll be a better man for it. There’s nothing to lose in that situation.

    However, I believe the promotion would give in if they continue to pay their fighters. Affliction is the same way. It’s not going to last.

  5. Jake Paul is now having a crisis. He’ll be up against someone who can throw punches. As a result, he’s staring at T Wood or Nate Diaz. I’m betting he’ll target Nate Diaz. Make more money and you’ll have a far lower risk of being flat lined.
