Paul vs Askren Preview
Askren had a 19-2 MMA record prior to his November 2019 retirement, while YouTube personality Paul is 2-0, knocking out the likes of former NBA star Nate Robinson along with another YouTube star, AnEsonGib.
The 6-foot-1, 24-year-old Paul took it upon himself to challenge and trash talk the former Bellator and ONE champ after his knockout over Robinson, which is how the banter between Paul and Askren first started. After months of verbal jabs, the two are about to literally take it into the ring, and Askren has made it clear he is looking to teach Paul a pretty big lesson.
“I actually don’t really find him particularly talented whether it’s being funny or anything else,” Askren said about Paul, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “It could be a generational gap, but I don’t really see what people see in him or why they find him to be entertaining or fascinating or whatever people find in him that they keep clicking on. I do not understand it at all.”
Askren also noted he didn’t learn much from watching Paul’s first two fights. “The level of his competition was so low that it’s hard to really take all that much from it,” Askren added.
For his part, Paul continued his trash talk this week, saying the following on his brother Logan’s podcast: “I promise April 17 will be the worst day of your f*****g life. Just as I asked Nate Robinson’s kids not to watch the fight, I will ask your kids to do the same. So, Ben Askren’s kids, wife, please don’t watch this because your dad will be bloodied, unconscious on the f*****g canvas (on) April 17. I don’t want you to see that … I promised my team, my family, my brother … I promise to make you go down as history as the world’s worst UFC fighter,” Paul said, per BJPenn.com.
Paul also made a bold prediction about the upcoming fight: “Nothing that Ben Askren will try to do in this fight will matter for one moment. And again, actions speak louder than words, and I’m just going to prove it. I’m sorry, you guys are in for a rude awakening. And you’re going to see, you’re going to see … I’m going to drop him in six minutes or less.”
Here’s a look at the four-fight card:
- Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren, cruiserweights
