YouTuber and certified douche Jake Paul has been on this bizarre MMA fighter career pivot and he actually somehow keeps winning. He KO’d former basketball player, Nate Robinson last year. And this past weekend, Jake fought retired UFC fighter, Ben Askren. He knocked Ben out in the first round. I don’t know what’s going on. How can this little shit keep winning fights? They must be staged–we know he’s pulled that shit before. Or he’s paying fighters to lose. Despite Jake winning, commentator for the evening, Pete Davidson, spoke to Ben ahead of the match and roasted the absolute shit out of Jake. Sure it ended up being ill-fated roasting as Ben lost the night, but that doesn’t mean that Pete is wrong about Jake Paul being “not a good person.”
ET Canada says that Jake took a swift victory over Ben at their fight on Saturday at the Triller Fight Club in Atlanta. And it brought out Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, The Black Keys, and Charli D’Amelio.

Pete was there doing some commentary for a stream, and he kept it as real as real can be because we know Pete has a hard time keeping anything to himself. Pete roasted having himself as a commentator before then shading both Jake and Ben like RuPaul had just handed him a pair of sunglasses in The Werk Room:
“You can tell how professional this event is by them having me here. We are backstage at Jake Paul’s dressing room. Locker room, if you wanna call it that… Today is a wild day for boxing because it shows how low it truly sunk. I think today proves the fact that if you have enough followers, you can truly fucking do whatever you want. Maybe PewDiePie will cure cancer and Charli D’Amelio will become a surgeon. Who knows? Tonight we have a fight between Ben Askren, who I don’t even know who that is, still, and I’ve been reading up on him all week, and Jake Paul. And, you know, they both suck but, you know, at least somebody’s gonna get hurt. And now back to you guys in the booth, some real announcers over there.”

Pete then sat down with Ben and tore into Jake’s absolute positive influence on the youth.
“I mean, he’s not a good person. He’s clearly not a good influence on any of the youth culture… he kind of has this whole following, so he thinks he can do whatever he wants. Didn’t he get busted by the feds with like AKs and machine guns… why isn’t he in jail?” Davidson said of Paul.
“Nobody wants you to lose this,” he told Askren. “Nobody wants to see Jake Paul win… I would like to kick his ass on behalf of your kids.”
During their conversation, Askren told Davidson that “even if Jake Paul’s a decent fighter, he’s still a shitbag as a human being.”
“Exactly. And that’s the message that we’re trying to get to the kids, that he is a piece of shit,” Davidson agreed before collapsing into giggles.

The Ben Askren – Pete Davidson shoot interview was excellent.

Pete also met up with Jake before the match, and I have to say I love the chaotic energy he was giving. Pete asked Jake about the sexual assault accusations against him and the broadcast, which was on a time delay, censored Pete’s question before Jake laughed it off.

Jake Paul is like one step beyond Chet Hanks on the Terrible White Boy-scale. I wanna see Chet and Jake having a UFC match where they knock each other out. That would be the only version of “White Boy Summer” I could find tolerable.
