Despite Askren being a first-class combat sports competitor who has more experience than Paul. Still, a significant part of the interest in this peculiar matchup is because of Funky’s problematic striking.
Ben Askren is an overwhelming grappler who was thoroughly criticized for his insufficient striking capacities, particularly towards the end of his career. Jake Paul’s brother Logan Paul took to social media to show support for his little brother.
He said, “I get it guys I like Ben, we like him he’s a good guy. He’s funny and entertaining and has a great personality. But if you think for one second this out of shape guy is going to beat my brother then you all are out of your minds.”
Logan further said that he is not allowed to bet in the fight. But if given a chance, he would go for Jake Paul wins by K.O in the first three rounds.
