Jake Paul just made good on his promise … DESTROYING BEN ASKREN in a ferocious 1st round knockout!!!!
THE FIGHT LASTED LESS THAN 2 MINUTES!!!
Askren — a decorated MMA fighter — threw some shots that landed in the opening moments of the fight. But things changed quickly.
24-year-old Paul made it clear he was headhunting — and connected with a DESTRUCTIVE right hand that sent the UFC fighter crashing to the floor with 1:18 left in the opening round.
Snoop was so pumped – he was shouting, “FINISH HIM! FINISH HIM!”
36-year-old Askren got up and wanted to continue — but the ref waived it off, saying Askren was stumbling and was just too discombobulated to continue.
Jake WAS EMOTIONAL after the win — crying in the ring and falling to his knees in disbelief, At one point, he got back up and started doing push ups to show he could keep going.
.@jakepaul has stopped Ben Askren in the FIRST ROUND!
Snoop Dogg — who was doing the announcing — says he won a $2 MILLION bet he made with UFC president Dana White.
“Dana, where my money at?” Snoop said during the broadcast.
“You f**king did that. You’re a bad mother**ker,” Snoop told Paul after the fight while giving booze to Jake at the Triller announcer table.
Paul is now 3-0 as a pro fighter — including a similar knockout over NBA star Nate Robinson.
“I told y’all I would do it in the 1st round. I told you I’m a real fighter,” Paul said.
The whole Triller Fight Club event was pretty damn entertaining — with performances from Justin Bieber, the Black Keys, Snoop, Too Short, Diplo and more.
Now, the million dollar question for Jake … WHO’S NEXT?!
