Paul v Askren: What’s been said?

Jake Paul sent a dark and rather vulgar warning to Ben Askren ahead of their clash this weekend.

He said: “Ben, what’s up you ugly motherf*****. You middle-aged, Dutchwoman, ugly, Napoleon Dynamite-looking ass motherf*****. 

“I know you’re probably sitting there right now with your little pedo smile, your little big-ass ears, your octagon-shaped head. 

“You think this is a f****** game. You think this is a fun payday, you think this is a way to get clout, and you might be right. 

“But I promise April 17 will be the worst day of your f****** life.

“Just as I asked Nate Robinson’s kids not to watch the fight, I will ask your kids not 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****** canvas April 17 and I don’t want you guys to see that.

“You already saw him get knocked out in five seconds by Masvidal. Your kids are probably going to school getting made fun of because their dad got knocked out in five seconds and then he’s gonna get knocked out by Jake Paul so please, leave them out of this. 

“You f***** up, Ben, by taking this fight.

“April 17, I promised to my team, my family, my brother who’s there right next to you right now, I promise to make you go down in history as the world’s worst UFC fighter. You’re dumb as f***, bro. 

“April 17, I’m gonna show the world just how big of a b**** you are. I’m gonna make you my b****. I promise that.”
