Snoop Dogg erupted into a wild celebration as Jake Paul knocked out Ben Askren during Triller Fight Club’s main event on Saturday night.

The YouTuber turned boxer, Paul, landed a jab that floored former the MMA fighter, Askren, in the first round of the fight inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Snoop, commentating alongside Saturday Night Live‘s Pete Davidson, cheered him on and celebrated the apparent windfall the victory will bring him.

“Get my money, Jake! Get my motherf*****g money, Jake!” he yelled repeatedly, as Paul landed the fight-winning punch.

“Get me my motherf*****g money, Jake! Finish him! Finish him!” he went on.

Then, moments after a victory speech from Paul, Snoop took the opportunity to call out UFC president Dana White.

“Hey Dana White, where my money at?” he said.

His words appear to refer to an apparent bet over the outcome of the fight.

In an appearance on Mike Tyson’s podcast last month, White had suggested there was no chance Paul could defeat Askren.

“Let’s be honest, Jake Paul isn’t a f**king boxer. This guys a f**king YouTube kid,” White said. “I’ll bet a million f**king dollars that he loses this f**king fight,” he said.

Snoop responded to White’s comments in a video posted on his Instagram page—and upped the stakes.

“Hey Dana White, I see you got faith in your boy, right? Going up against my guy, Jake,” the rapper said.

“You say you got a million You’re the CEO of UFC, man. You got more than a million. Put up TWO. Put up $2 million and we’ll match it.”

He added: “Come on Dana, what you waiting on?”
