UFC boss Dana White sets Ben Askren up with trainer Freddie Roach for Jake Paul fight after $2m bet on MMA star

Paul has called out White several times, and his leading star Conor McGregor.

And the promoter has grown such a dislike to the social media star, he was willing to help Askren out by linking him up with Roach in Los Angeles.

Askren, 36, told The Schmo: “Dana’s my buddy now. We’re good. You know, it’s funny how circumstances bring people together sometimes.

“Even when the UFC traded for me, Dana and I weren’t buddy buddy necessarily and now he really wants me to beat up Jake Paul.”

Askren was long considered the best MMA talent outside of the UFC, and White refused to sign the former Olympic wrestler.

But in 2018, Askren traded with ex-UFC champion Demetrious Johnson, who instead moved to ONE Championship in Asia.

The American grappler had three UFC fights, losing two, the last against Damian Maia in October 2019.

Afterwards, Askren retired and underwent hip surgery, but this January accepted a fight against Paul.

The internet sensation has two knockouts in as many fights, but only against online rival ‘AnEsonGib’ and ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 36.

As a result, UFC boss White told Mike Tyson, 54, he would bet $1m on Askren to win.

Paul, 24, wanted to up the anti to $2m alongside rapper Snoop Dogg, but they were never taken up on the offer.
