Snoop Dogg appears to win $2 million bet with Dana White thanks to Jake Paul knocking out Ben Askren




Snoop Dogg is waiting on a $2million windfall from Dana White thanks to Jake Paul.

The YouTuber moved to to 3-0 as a professional boxer with a first-round knockout of Ben Askren, much to the dismay of UFC president White, who was so confident in Askren he claimed he was willing to bet $1m on him winning.

Paul was delighted with his win, which came against an actual fighter in Askren

Based on the calibre of fighters, Askren has faced and beaten in his previous career, White was quite rightly predicting a win.

Paul’s previous two pro boxing fights were against a fellow influencer and former NBA star.

But it took the 24-year-old around 70 seconds to finish the former MMA star and he made his move with a left-jab set-up followed by an overhand right to the temple.

Askren did get to his feet in time for the count, but was clearly still wobbly.

Askren, who once took a barrage of punches from Robbie Lawler, was floored by Paul with one punch

In an Instagram video prior to the fight, Snoop Dogg – on hand to provide entertainment on the night – was willing to match White’s bet.

“Hey Dana White, I see you got faith in your boy, right? Going up against my guy, Jake.

“You say you got a million? You’re the CEO of UFC, man. You’ve got more than a million. Put up two – put up two million and we’ll match it. Come on, Dana, what you waiting on?

Fireworks erupted after Paul’s win – and there could be more if Snoop doesn’t get his money from White

“Your money’s good. Yeah, I got Jake. Fight night. That’s my guy, that’s my dog in the fight. Two million. Holla at me, Dana White.”

It’s not clear whether White, White, a notorious gambler, will pay up or if he ever actually accepted the bet, but Snoop seemed to believe he had won, screaming the sum of money repeatedly.

Paul then joined him in the commentary booth to continue his celebration and once he had spoken, Snoop screamed: “Where’s my money at? Dana, where my money at?”
