Who will win? Jake Paul or Ben Askren?While Askren naturally holds an advantage when it comes to experience inside the ring, he was never considered a good striker in MMA as his whole game was set up around his grinding wrestling.
Sure, Jake Paul looked impressive in his two ‘professional’ bout, but each fight was seen more as a novelty match by the boxing community. His oppenents were not at the same level of the former olympic wrestler. Aside from a Masvidal knee to the face, Askren has proven his ability to absorb a heavy hit.
