Jake Paul scores first-round KO against ex-UFC fighter Ben Askren

The YouTube star defeated UFC fighter Ben Askren by knockout in the first round of a Triller Fight Club event on Saturday, laying out the mixed martial artist with a hard right rook.

The victory improves Paul's professional boxing record to 3-0, with his previous wins coming against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

Askren opens, and possibly closes, his boxing career with a loss, but comes away with a major payday .

Paul entered the match as a strong favorite against the 36-year-old Askren, who holds a 19-2-1 record in mixed martial arts, but was always known as a wrestling specialist rather than a striker.

Conor McGregor is obviously the big name thrown around, as Paul said earlier this week that he was closer to a fight against the biggest name in MMA than people might think.
