Results of Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren

Almost two minutes into the race, there was no action until Jake Paul landed in a 1-2 combination that knocked down Ben Askren and stopped the race in the first round.

That’s it. No action. No accumulation. Just two minutes and the race is over.

Paul was definitely the fighter who seemed to be in a better position to enter the fight. Askren, who usually fought at 170kg in mixed martial arts, weighed in at 191kg. Paul, on the other hand, seemed to have trained hard for the match.

He showed even more in the ring. Askren, who said he probably got the biggest paycheck of his career against Paul, danced around boxing without really throwing much.

But less than two minutes into the fight, Paul hit him with a jab and a straight right that put Askren on the canvas. He got up, trying to survive in a standing eight count, but the referee was chased by the fight as Triller Fight Club co-founder Snoop Dogg, commenting, shouted into the microphone, “Finish him, finish him.”

Askren initially looked upset with the quick stop. He later said he told the referee it was fine, but the referee said, no, you are not, and then waving from the match. But that was the end of the accumulation weeks.

The comment was definitely a bit far from what is usually considered professional in the sports world, but again, the Triller Fight Club is not your traditional sports show presentation. Impartiality is not a requirement.

“I thought I was fine, but this is it [the referee’s] work, if that felt like it’s okay, “Askren said in a post-match commentary, also showing that he was not too scared of the quick stop.

“No, I’m going to take home about a million dollars in the bank and train some wrestling,” Askren said, adding that he has no plans to return to martial arts.

“I will not return again. I will not be in any cage. “

Asked what was next for Paul, Snoop Dogg said that although “the guy in the pink shorts” would be next, he later confirmed that he meant Joe Fournier, a 9-0 boxer who stopped musician Raccoon earlier in the night on the card. Saturday’s. .

Paul said that “he would do whatever he wanted” after defeating Ashren, before adding: “I do not know what will follow for me. I will just enjoy my life for a second. “

After the match, Snoop Dogg was in the camera shouting a message to UFC President Dana White, repeatedly saying, “Dana White, where does my money come from?”

White said in a Mike Tyson podcast appearance before the match that he would bet $ 1 million on Askren. Snoop Dogg reacted that the bet should be two million dollars, apparently what was mentioned in his on-air comments.
