After knocking out Ben Askren this past weekend, Jake Paul has trolled the UFC president Dana White over his proposed $1 million bet which he said he would put on Askren — this and much more on Wednesday's social media roundup.
Jake Paul mocks Dana White over his proposed $1 million bet
In the lead-up to Jake Paul's boxing match against former UFC fighter Ben Askren, the UFC president Dana White appeared on Mike Tyson's podcast and made a pretty bold claim.
White claimed that he was that confident that Askren would defeat Paul that he would be putting a $1 million bet on Askren to win the fight.
As most of you will be aware right now, the fight did not go the way White expected it and Paul knocked out Askren in the very first round with a big right-hand shot.
Now that the fight is done, Paul has mocked White on Twitter by asking his fans what he should buy with the $1 million which White betted against him.
Check out the tweet below.
In the tweet, Paul said, "What should I buy with @danawhite's $1m? I'm thinking a Porsche 918 Spyder."
Who do you think Paul should face next in his boxing adventure?
Happy birthday to Paulo Costa!
