Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren was always going to be a fun spectacle, and now things just became even more interesting. Veteran rapper Snoop Dogg has weighed in on his favourite for the fight with a public backing of Youtube star Jake Paul, and he didn’t stop there. Snoop also called out Dana White on his $1 million bet on forthcoming boxing match and doubled the stakes.
White recently said on Mike Tyson’s podcast that he was willing to bet a cool $1 million that former UFC fighter Askren will come out on top against Paul.
“Let’s be honest, Jake Paul isn’t a ****ing boxer. He’s a YouTube kid… I hope you can bet on this thing, cause I’ll bet a million dollars that he loses this f*cking fight. Bet a million dollars that he loses this fight.”
This caught Snoop’s attention, who came out in full support of Paul, and urged the UFC boss to up his wager.
“Hey Dana White, I see you got faith in your boy right?! Going up against my guy Jake,” Snoop Dogg challenged Dana White, as per TMZ. “You say you got a million?! You’re the CEO of UFC. You got more than a million. Put up TWO. Put up $2 million and we’ll match it .”
“C’mon Dana, what you waiting on?! Your money is good,” Snoop added. “Yeah, I got Jake. Fight night. That’s my guy. That’s my dog in the fight. $2 million. Holla at me, Dana White.”
White has yet to respond, but both Jake and Logan Paul have acknowledged Snoop’s wager, adding to the hype surrounding the contest.
