Snoop Dogg Shouts 'Dana White, Where's My Money At?' After Winning $2m On Jake Paul Bet

Snoop Dogg called out Dana White after winning $2 million on Jake Paul's fight with Ben Askren.

The rapper shouted at the UFC boss following Paul's victory over the former mixed martial artist.

Ahead of the fight, White told Mike Tyson he would be willing to bet $1m that the YouTuber lost.

"Let's be honest, Jake Paul isn't a f***ing boxer," he said.

"This guy is a f***ing YouTube kid.

"The kid he's going to fight is a decorated wrestler who has fought real guys, he's been a world champion with another organisation."

After hearing this, the 49-year-old rap icon raised the stakes, saying he was willing to put $2m on the line, confident that Paul, 24, would claim the victory.

In an Instagram video, Snoop said: "You say you got a million? You're the CEO of UFC, man. You've got more than a million. Put up two - put up two million and we'll match it."

And following Paul's dramatic first round knockout of Askren, 36, Dogg's confidence, it would seem, paid off.

Speaking after the fight, Dogg said: "Dana White, where's my money at?"

I guess we'll have to see whether White pays out or not.

Prior to the fight, Paul revealed that he was already showing early signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

And in his post-fight interview, he said he didn't know how much more he had to do to prove to people that he was serious about his boxing career.

"Just a couple of years ago, my teachers would make fun of me in class, telling me I can't do nothing, telling me I wasn't smart," Paul said.

"My schoolmates making fun of me, I used to landscape. I just had a dream and I chased it and worked hard.

"To think I'm here standing next to these legends, it's unbelievable."

He went on: "I've been in training camp every day, I deserved that s**t.

"This is the craziest moment of my life. I told y'all I was going to do it in the first round, I told y'all I'm a real fighter.

"I don't know how many times I've got to prove myself that this is for real.

"This is for Shadow, my security guard who passed away 10 days ago.

"He told me I would knock him out in the first round, he said he had a vision in a dream.

"This has been the hardest 10 days of my life, I've had to hold it together to keep this fight going.

"I'm just honoured to be here."

In a tweet following the fight, Askren, 36, apologised for his performance.

He simply wrote: "Sorry world :(."
