Paul took aim at his opponent Askren, predicting a seventh-round knockout in their highly-anticipated boxing bout.
The YouTuber continued to stoke his rivalry with McGregor as he brought up his crushing loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 last month.
White and Diaz were also ridiculed by Paul who impersonated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, too.
He uploaded the clip on social media, accompanied with the caption: "MMA Chronicles pt. 2 @TheNotoriousMMA @TeamKhabib @danawhite @Benaskren @NateDiaz209 April 17th watch me knockout the @ufc 's big bad Benjamin Askren on @triller."

Askren wasted no time in responding, branding Paul's video as "average" on Twitter.
He tweeted: "I feel like this is average work at best. the guy has a full-time production staff and he can't come up with anything better???"

"MMA Chronicles pt. 2" comes a couple of months after Paul uploaded "MMA Chronicles pt. 1".
He savaged McGregor, Askren, White and Diaz as well as Michael Bisping and Dillon Danis back in December.

The 2-0 boxer returns to action in less than two months and his sparring partner believes the 24-year-old will get the job done on April 17.
Brazilian MMA fighter Raush Manfio told MMA Fighting: "I believe Ben Askren can take a punch, but Jake Paul has knockout power. If Askren goes in there to trade hands, he's going down. No doubt. He's going down. [Paul] has a powerful right hand, and he's getting smarter in the ring, not getting scared or stuff like that, things you learn with time.
"I'm a professional MMA fighter since 2011 and I get mature as time goes by, you understand the sport, but [Paul] has firepower and that's crucial.
"In my opinion, what is Askren going to do? For him to win, only if he gets Jake Paul tired. But how is he going to get him tired if he doesn't have heavy hands? How is he going to hurt him? What is he going to do?
"I can only see Jake Paul winning by knockout or points, Jake Paul is far superior. I can't see one weapon [Askren] can use. If he was like a Dan Henderson type of fighter with a powerful overhand, that would be a different conversation.
"[Paul] has knockout power and cardio. Meanwhile, [Askren] might have a chin but doesn't have firepower to drop him, so I don't see how Askren wins this match."
