Snoop Dogg sent a timely reminder to UFC president Dana White about their pre-fight wager following Jake Paul's emphatic first-round win over Ben Askren.
Back in March this year, the legendary rapper backed Paul to win and in the meantime, bet White a hefty sum of $2 million (£1.4m) that the YouTuber will come out on top.
In an Instagram video, Snoop said: "Hey Dana White, I see you got faith in your boy, right? Going up against my guy, Jake.
"You say you got a million? You're the CEO of UFC, man. You've got more than a million. Put up two - put up two million and we'll match it."
He continued: "Come on Dana, what you waiting on?
"Your money good. Yeah, I got Jake. Fight night. That's my guy, that's my dog in the fight. Two million. Holla at me, Dana White."
And well, it took just a matter of minutes for Paul to land with a devastating right in round one, ending the contest with just a minute left on the clock.
Ahead of fight night, Askren branded his opponent as "delusional" after having the opinion he was a "high-level boxer" but in reality, the two-time NCAA national champion struggled to get out the blocks himself.

In his post-fight interview, Paul spoke about his dream and how it was "unbelievable" to stand next to legends like Snoop Dogg.
Moments later, the 49-year-old rapper called out Dana White, shouting: "Where's my money at? Dana, where my money at?"
You can see the hilarious footage below.
White had appeared on Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson, where he scoffed at Paul's chances in the upcoming boxing match against the retired UFC fighter.
"Let's be honest, Jake Paul isn't a f***ing boxer," White said. "This guy's a f***ing YouTube kid."
He continued: "I hope you can bet on this thing, cause I'll bet a million dollars that he loses this f***ing fight.
"Bet a million dollars that he loses this fight. I hope we can bet on this."
White seemed to have more positive words to say about Askren, who he said was a 'real good' fighter.
"The kid that he's going to fight is a wrestler," he said. "A real good wrestler, decorated wrestler, but he's actually fought real guys. He's been a world champion in other organizations."
Well, that didn't go to plan, Dana.
