RAP icon Snoop Dogg has bet UFC boss Dana White $2million that Jake Paul will BEAT Ben Askren.
Tha Doggfather, 49, publicly raised the stakes after MMA promoter White claimed he'd be prepared to wager $1m on YouTube star Paul losing.

Paul, 24, has a perfect 2-0 professional boxing record and takes on retired UFC welterweight Askren, 36, in his next fight on April 17.
And the social media star has found an unlikely ally in music legend Snoop, who vowed to put his money where his mouth is.

In a video released on Instagram, he said: “Hey Dana White, I see you got faith in your boy right? Going up against my guy Jake.
“You say you got a million? You’re the CEO of UFC, man. You’ve got more than a million. Put up two million (£1.4m) and we’ll match it. … Come on Dana, whatchu waiting on?
“Your money good. Yeah, I got Jake. Fight night. That’s my guy, that’s my dog in the fight. Two million. Holla at me, Dana White.”
UFC chief White had hit the headlines for betting $1m (£720,000) that YouTuber Paul would lose to his former employee Askren.
Speaking on Mike Tyson's Hotboxin' podcast, he said: "I hope you can bet on this thing because I will bet $1m that he loses this f***ing fight.
"I bet a million dollars that he loses this fight!"
White – who admitted to being a 'degenerate gambler' and once lost a $1m boxing bet – added: "Let’s be honest, Jake Paul isn’t a f***ing boxer.
"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."
