Ben askren will have in front of Jake paul this Saturday night, so all MMA backs him up at this time. Other Mixed Martial Arts fighters, from Bellator, UFC and PFL, have spoken about it, making it clear that the young youtuber will not have any chance against the former ONE Championship champion. In that sense, the veteran fighter could walk as the favorite.
Thus, the Featherweight of Bellator, Emmanuel Sánchez, said: “When he hits you and does creepy things, he’s like the Dennis Rodman of the sport. You can see it and think it’s unorthodox, but then you go out and you can’t stop it. People are counting to Ben, I do not know why. Ben is a true fighter. Boxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu, if it’s a spitting contest, Ben will show up and show you what’s up. The first time I trained with him, he threw a fist back at me.
“I was like, ‘What the heck…?’ I guess even in training, and a lot of boxing venues do this, and not unfairly, they are probably attracting a lot of people who can give you a challenge, but you can still beat. I think he’s probably getting guys that he can beat who aren’t necessarily that tough mentally, or if they’re so tough mentally, their skills are so poor that he can beat them and keep his confidence high, ”he added.
Has a lot of support
In turn, Anthony Pettis, former UFC champion and current PFL star, also commented the following: “When something is proposed, it is 100 percent. I think that Jake has not fought someone who is an athlete like Ben. The first guy this guy fought with had never been hit before. He will have to hurt Ben to finish Ben, so I don’t see that happening.
«He is the guy who was merged by Jorge Masvidal. Nobody comes back and looks. Nobody remembers a month ago, three months ago. It’s so present, and once the narrative is established in the present, people believe in that narrative. If I am Jake paul And I want to fight an MMA guy, I’d say, ‘Yeah that’s the guy I’m going to knock out.’ He was not knocked out by Masvidal. But Masvidal is different from Paul. They are two completely different animals, ”said Duke Roufus.
