Jake Paul is the unquestionable flamboyant superstar of the modern boxing era. With just 2 fights on his pro-resume, Paul has attained mammoth fame and glory. Following his last T/KO win over NBA star Nate Robinson, the ‘Problem Child’ took every opportunity to mock top-tier athletes from both MMA and boxing.

He continues his verbal jabs on these stars. Recently, Fight Hype shared a compilation video of Paul, who mimicked some of the biggest UFC stars in his own eccentric way.

In this clip, the ‘Problem Child’ took a dig at his nemesis Conor McGregor and Ben Askren, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Nate Diaz, and Dana White.

Paul acted like all these top-notch stars, starting with the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor. He tried imitating the Irishman’s natural accent. Subsequently, the ‘Problem Child’ elevated his trash-talking game when he mocked the undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC supremo Dana White and BMF title challenger, Nate Diaz too made it to this video as Paul tried his best to imitate them and entertain his fans.

But, his prime focus was former UFC welterweight, Ben Askren. He even included the devastating UFC 239 KO where Jorge Masvidal left Askren on the floor in 5 seconds.

This is something he has vowed to do himself when he fights the former fighter on April 17.

Can Jake Paul overpower Ben Askren?

Though Paul is undefeated in his pro boxing career, those wins have arrived over non-fighters. Although Askren competed in a distinct form of combat sports, he still might be the YouTuber turned boxer’s toughest opponent to date.

However, this is a pure-boxing contest and the ‘Problem Child’ will enjoy an undeniable advantage over his rival, who’s remained primarily a grappler in his illustrious MMA career.

Paul possesses some serious knockout power and this contest too will be at his favorable weight class, the cruiserweight.

Despite Paul being a favorite in this fight, Askren will not be a pushover. He will look to get under the 2-0 star’s skin and unsettle him ahead of one of the most talked-about fights of 2021. Fans will eagerly look forward to his response to this clip.
