Jake Paul is one of the biggest YouTube celebrities of all time. He has also been working hard at becoming a fighter, having fought people such as K.S.I & even the boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Dana White, who actually runs the company where real fighters face each other in the octagon all the time, thinks that Jake Paul is no big deal. He has never really liked Jake Paul, and after it was revealed that Paul will be facing a Ben Askrew, a former UFC fighter, he is more annoyed than ever.

After being featured on the Mike Tyson podcast alongside the former boxer Zab Judah, White dismissed Paul off as a “f**king YouTube kid.” He even made a bet for $1 million saying that Askrew would teach Paul a lesson.

Paul quickly took to Instagram and gave a full-on reaction to White, saying:

Dana let’s double the bet up! $2 Million. We wire the money into escrow. $4 million total. Winner takes all. My team will be in touch to make a contract. After I knockout Ben, we can set up Jake Paul Vs. Dana White 2021 since you consider yourself a “Boxer” and me a “YouTuber

Jake Paul is confident in his fighting skills, so much so that he is willing to bet himself on $2 million. While Paul is reputed as what some might a kayfabe fighter, Ben Askren is a real deal. Let see who loses money in this bet.
