Dwayne Johnson Is Impressed By Jorge Masvidal’s Amazing Flying Knee Knockout Over Ben Askren At UFC 239!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a famous actor, but also an avid MMA fan and a former WWE champion.
Just like many of us, Dwayne was thrilled with Jorge Masvidal’s super-fast flying knee knockout over an undefeated wrestler and the former ONE and Bellator champion Ben Askren.
After the knockout, “Gamebred” landed two more big punches on the downed opponent. Masvidal was criticized was for that, but he said his job was to strike until the referee says otherwise. This was Jorge’s second KO win in a row, as he previously turned the lights out on the dangerous Brit Darren Till.
The famous actor shared positive thoughts on his Twitter account.

Johnson hopes to see Jorge Masvidal in a title bout, and “Gamebred” shares the same idea. He recently called 170-pound reigning defending champ Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman.
We’ll see what comes next for Masvidal. But when a star like Dwayne Johnson praises your performance, you know you did an outstanding job!
