Ben Askren is not only a former professional mixed martial artist, he’s an extremely accomplished one. In 22 fights he racked up a 19-2 record with one no contest. His career started with a 19-fight win streak before a brutal knockout at the hands of Jorge Masvidal and submission loss to Damian Maia. Askren finished 12 fights in his career, six of those finishes came by KO or TKO.
On the other hand, Paul has had two professional boxing fights in his career. His first win came via Round 1 TKO against a fellow YouTuber. His second fight ended in a highlight-reel KO of former NBA player Nate Robinson.
So, take the world class mixed martial artist against the YouTuber known for his shenanigans and producing terrible rap songs like “It’s Everyday Bro” and a diss track against his teachers. When Askren wins, you win $454 dollars on a $500 bet at -110. If by chance he loses, 888sport refunds your entire bet, up to $500.
