Jake Paul Calls Out Dana White To A Fight And Responds To UFC Boss' $1 Million Bet

Jake Paul has called out Dana White after the UFC boss laid down a massive $1 million bet on his fight with Ben Askren.

White blasted Paul and said he'd bet $1 million that he loses his upcoming boxing bout against Askren.

Appearing on Mike Tyson's podcast, he said: "I hope you can bet on this thing because I will bet ONE MILLION DOLLARS that he loses this f**king fight.

"I bet a million dollars that he loses this fight!"

The UFC president is not convinced the 24-year-old is a boxer ahead of his highly-anticipated showdown with the former UFC star.

"Let's be honest, Jake Paul isn't a f**king boxer. This guy is a f**king YouTube kid," he added.

Zab Judah, who has been training with Paul, hit back: "Dana, I watched him, he's been working hard, Dana. I have seen him put it together.

"He's got hands. I am not joking."

It didn't take Paul long to respond, challenging White to increase the bet to $2 million in a video call-out.

He tweeted a video, accompanied with the caption: "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.'"


Paul is 2-0 in boxing having scored a devastating knockout victory over Nate Robinson in his last outing.

Askren, meanwhile, hasn't fought since his retirement off the back of his defeat to Demian Maia in 2019.

Paul vs. Askren will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on April 17.
