Ben Askren: "I Could Beat Up A Bum" YouTuber Like Jake Paul

Ben Askren is one of several UFC fighters recently called out by Youtube sensation turned boxer Jake Paul.

Askren, who is known more for his wrestling than his striking game, says he could beat up a bum like Paul.

“Jake Paul wants to box me,” Askren said on What the Heck (via Mike Heck of MMA Fighting). “I don’t know, I’m not a boxer but I could beat up a bum YouTube celebrity.”

A retired Askren did pick up 19 wins as a professional MMA fighter, but only six of them came by way of KO/TKO.

The fighter says he doesn’t mind collecting a paycheck to fight to Youtube sensation.

“It would be something to do because you could say I did it,” Askren said. “I don’t gotta go box f*ckin Roy Jones and get my ass whooped or nothing. But I could box some YouTube bum and get paid for it? What a tremendous livelihood.”
