After Paul crushed Askren, Snoop Dogg was asking White “where my cash at?” over the house amplifier concerning a supposed bet everything men had on the battle:
On Saturday, YouTube sensation Jake Paul took out previous Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren in the Triller Fight Club headliner. Following the battle, multi-platinum recording craftsman and Triller co-proprietor Snoop Dogg, who was filling in as one of the host of the occasion, jumped on the mic and began yelling “Dana White, where my cash at?” referring to a supposed bet that White made on Askren beating Paul. Yet, talking with Yahoo’s Kevin Iole on Monday, White announced that no such bet was at any point made.

“I don’t even want to say it. I don’t even want to say what I think happened in that fight,” White said when asked to comment on the bout. “But I can tell you this, I don’t owe Snoop $2 million. I never bet – let me make it clear right here to everybody: I have never made an illegal bet, ever. I did not make an illegal bet on Saturday night. I did not bet $2 million with Snoop or anybody.”
The beginning of this comes from an appearance on Mike Tyson’s web recording where White was talking about the session with Zab Judah and Mike Tyson and disclosed to Judah he’d bet “1,000,000 dollars” that Askren would win. From that point, Snoop Dogg went on TMZ to endeavor to twofold down on that, saying he’d bet White $2 million. White never openly acknowledged that bet nor, he says, did he do as such in private all things considered.
“Javier Mendez called me right after I did the Mike Tyson podcast, he’s the head coach at AKA, and he said these guys at Triller, they want to take that bet,” White said. “‘They want to bet you $2 million.’ I said, ‘It’s f***ing illegal!’ First of all, I’m not gonna make an illegal bet, number one, and number two, why would I bet them $1 million or $2 million, when I could do it legally in Las Vegas and get two-to-one?”
White did flippantly make reference to a $1 million bet he would put on Askren during an appearance on Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson a month ago.
“I trust you can wager on this thing since I’ll f- – ruler bet 1,000,000 dollars that [Paul] loses this f- – lord battle,” White said (h/t Alan Dawson of Insider.com). “1,000,000 dollars that he loses this battle.”
Sneak Dogg found out about that remark, revealing to TMZ Sports he needed White to set up $2 million for Askren to win.
There’s no sign that White at any point took Snoop up on that offer or even made a bet on the result of the battle.
Paul crushed Askren by TKO under two minutes into the first round in the headliner of the six-battle card from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The YouTube star has won every one of his initial three expert boxing battles by knockout or TKO.
