Ben Askren was robbed of the chance to truly fight Jake Paul late Saturday night.
Paul landed an awesome punch on Askren in the first round, and that sent the MMA star to the ground. Askren popped up ready to roll, but the refs called it! (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I thought we were still living in America, but I guess we’re so soft as a society we don’t even let a guy get up to fight.
Askren might have been down, but we’re talking about one of the toughest chins in MMA.

My immediate impression is that this was all done to protect Paul. Why not let Askren finish it out? Was Paul that scared? What an absolute joke.
That was an absolute screw job on that stoppage. #AskrenVsPaul

This is disgusting and I’m not getting it over it anytime soon. Pathetic on all levels.
