Jake Paul Defeats Ben Askren With Shocking 1st-Round Knockout

Recommended Posts

YouTuber Jake Paul defeated retired MMA fighter/wrestler Ben Askren with a shocking first-round knockout in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Saturday night. It was the third fight in Paul's boxing career.

Paul sent Asken to the ground with a massive right hand to win the fight right after it started. All in all, the fight lasted less than one minute. Asken was able to stand back up, but the ref decided to waive it off.

After the knock-out, Paul celebrated in the ring with his brother Logan.

"You fucking did that. You're a bad motherfucker," Snoop Dogg said at the announcer's table.

"I told y'all I would do it in the 1st round. I told you I'm a real fighter," Paul remarked.

Paul warned that the fight wouldn't go the distance. “I don’t think the fight will last long enough for him to even think about taking me down,” he said Wednesday, adding, “My distance control is 10 times better than his. And if he does, he’s going to get busted up on the inside. That’s one thing we really worked on in this camp is my inside fighting game. He can come in, but he’s going to get cracked."

The 24-year-old YouTube star previously knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson.

Askren, 36, began his MMA undefeated in his first 19 fights in mixed martial arts but retired after subsequent back-to-back losses to finish his career. He cited longstanding hip issues as a factor in his retirement.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
