Snoop Dogg calls out UFC chief Dana White over £1.4m bet after Jake Paul fight

Snoop Dogg has called out UFC president Dana White over a $2m (£1.4m) bet following Jake Paul's brutal first-round KO of Ben Askren.

The YouTube sensation, 24, continued his fine form in the ring with a quick win over the ex-UFC star.

Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg has always been confident Paul would deliver on the night – and offered White, who was heavily behind Askren, a big wager.

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.

"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."

Snoop Dogg was on commentary duty during the fight and after interviewing the winner, the rapper began screaming down the mic, demanding his money from White.

"Where's my money at? Dana, where my money at?" he yelled as the Triller broadcast ended.

But it is unclear if the bet was even made – or if White agreed to the terms.

The UFC chief isn't convinced allowing celebrities into the fight game is wise – and for that reason, he was backing Askren to beat the internet celebrity.

"Let's be honest, Jake Paul isn't a f***ing boxer," White said on Mike Tyson's HotBoxing podcast.
