UFC Vegas 24: Robert Whittaker ready for rematch with Israel Adesanya after defeating Kelvin Gastelum, Adesanya responds
Ben Askren only had one thing to say after easily getting knocked out by Jake Paul
A strange night of fights and performances, including those who weren’t competing in the ring, all ended with Jake Paul easily knocking out Ben Askren in about two minutes in a boxing bout.
Askren was able to leave the ring on his own accord, and he tweeted out a message to his supporters after putting on a display that’d leave MMA fans (and maybe just combat sports fans period) hanging their heads in shame.

For the record, Robinson was knocked out in the second round. Askren lasted two MINUTES.
