Dana White appeared on Bill Simmons’ BS Podcast for The Ringer this week and addressed the rumor that he lost a huge bet to Snoop Dogg. And he made it clear there’s no truth to it.
“I really did not,” White said when Simmons asked if he actually lost $2 million to Snoop Dogg. “I think he was deep into the good stuff by the time he started saying that … I have never made an illegal bet in my life. I did not bet illegally with Snoop.”
This all started in March when White appeared on Mike Tyson’s podcast and said he would bet $1 million that Jake Paul would lose to Ben Askren. Snoop Dogg then upped the ante by saying to TMZ, “Hey Dana White, I see you got faith in your boy right?! Going up against my guy Jake. You say you got a million?! You’re the CEO of UFC. You got more than a million. Put up TWO. Put up $2 million and we’ll match it.”
When Paul defeated Askren, Snoop’s mind was on his money and his money was on his mind. During the fight, Snoop said live into the mic, “Dana White, where my money at?”
But it seems that bet was never actually agreed upon by both parties. Now we await Snoop’s response to this.
