It’s 2021 and somehow Jake Paul is one of the hottest fighters in the entire country.
On Saturday night, Paul added to his growing resume when he made easy work of Ben Askren as he knocked him down in the first round and the referee called off the match soon after.
After yet another viral knockout and win, Paul found his name trending among current and former UFC stars.
42-year-old retired UFC legend BJ Penn had this to say:
Chris Leben, Dillon Danis, and Phil Baroni want a piece of the YouTuber as well.
“It’s been four months, I’ve been in training camp every day,” Paul said after his win. “I deserve this shit. I don’t know how many times I have to prove myself that this is for real.”
