Dana White Says He’ll Bet One Million Dollars That Jake Paul Will Lose To Ben Askren On April 17

Is Dana White underestimating Jake Paul?

UFC President Dana White was on ‘Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson’ this week, and when the topic moved to the upcoming boxing match between Ben Askren and Jake Paul, Dana seemed VERY confident that the former UFC fighter would destroy the cocky YouTuber.

How confident? Well, how about so confident he’s willing to bet one million dollars on it:

Great to see Iron Mike having a good time there!

Jake Paul responded to the clip almost immediately, saying he’d double the bet:

Let’s hope they actually go through with this bet as it will make things a hell of a lot more interesting. Given that Ben Askren is primarily a wrestler and possibly one of the worst strikers in UFC history, it’s very surprising that Dana White has so much faith in him to get the job done in a boxing match. I’m certain he’s underestimating Jake Paul big time here, who despite being an annoying YouTuber does actually have some boxing skill. I mean there’s a reason he picked Ben Askren as his next opponent rather than someone like Conor McGregor, right?

On the other hand, Ben Askren is the more experienced overall fighter, so who knows what will happen? He’s certainly taking it seriously, that’s for sure.

Will Jake Paul humiliate Ben Askren and make the world of MMA look like a joke in the process? Or will he get KO’d and maybe end this experiment where he’s trying to be some big time boxer? Whichever way it goes, I don’t think we’ll hear the end of it from the winner. And maybe Dana White can make a cool milli out of it too. Stay tuned.
