UFC President Dana White recently discussed the “$1 million dollar” bet he supposedly made ahead of the Jake Paul vs Ben Askren contest for Triller Fight Club. White said emphatically before the fight that he would “bet $1 million dollars” that Askren would defeat Paul.
As you’re probably now well aware, Askren got Knocked The F*ck Out by Jake Paul, so White kind of, sort of, technically, owes someone some money.
“I don’t even want to say it. I don’t even want to say what I think happened in that fight,” White said to Yahoo’s Kevin Iole earlier this week. “But I can tell you this, I don’t owe Snoop $2 million.”
Dana White on The ‘Bet’
“I never bet – let me make it clear right here to everybody: I have never made an illegal bet, ever” Dana White continued. “No, I did not make an illegal bet on Saturday night. I did not bet $2 million with Snoop or anybody.”
“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 added. “‘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?”
It would’ve been really interesting to see if Snoop Dogg would be handing over a million bucks today if the fight went the other way.
