UFC boss Dana White has dismissed rapper Snoop Dogg's claim that he made a £1.44million bet with him for Jake Paul's fight against Ben Askren.
YouTube star Paul destroyed ex-UFC fighter Askren inside one minute with a devastating knockout in Atlanta on Saturday night.
And Snoop, who was commentating at the event, had been talking all night about the bet he supposedly made with White about who would win the fight, with the musician choosing Paul and the UFC boss picking his former employee Askren.
But according to White, that agreement never took place.
Speaking to Yahoo Sports, he said: "Let me make it clear right here to everybody. I have never made an illegal bet, ever.
"I did not make an illegal bet on Saturday night. I did not bet $2m with Snoop or anybody."
White, who has been disparaging about the state of boxing for some time, also used the Paul fight as a stick to beat that drum with.
"This is the right guy with the right shtick at the right time. This guy is playing this thing perfectly," he added.
"And boxing is in such a bad place, they’re doing a really good job at sucking in people to buy into this thing. And good for him."
Paul extended his perfect professional record to 3-0 with his victory over Askren at the weekend.
