DANA WHITE had Mike Tyson giddy after betting $1million Jake Paul would lose to Ben Askren.
And the YouTuber responded by DOUBLING the wager.
Paul, 24, has a perfect 2-0 professional boxing record and takes on retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 36, in his next fight on April 17.
But appearing on Tyson’s Hotboxin’ podcast, the UFC president vowed to put his money where his mouth is.
White said: “I hope you can bet on this thing because I will bet $1m (£720,000) that he loses this f***ing fight.
“I bet a million dollars that he loses this fight!”
And boxing icon Tyson was loving it as he whooped, laughed and clapped at the prospect of White stumping up the cash.
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.”
