Triller Fight Club has filed a lawsuit citing alleged $100 million in damages in California, against illegal streamers of their April 17. Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren event from the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. 

In an official statement emailed to MMA Fighting, the promotion alleged that eleven illegal streamers broadcasted the event, which was headlined by a professional boxing match between polarizing YouTuber, Jake Paul, and UFC alum, one-time Bellator and ONE Championship welterweight best, Ben Askren. Yahoo! Sports was first to report the news of the promotion’s filed lawsuit. 

The lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court for the city of California has cited damages against eleven total websites, one hundred unnamed persons with two million total illegal streams. The damages cited are $100 million, in which Triller claim was revenue lost. 

It’s shocking to think a theft so grand can be done so blatantly and brazenly and steal with no remorse,” the statement provided to MMA Fighting read. “There is zero difference between what they did and walking into a market, stealing tones of a product and selling it at a discount in the parking lot. It’s neither civilly nor criminally any different and we are prosecuting to the fullest extent of the law.

There were far over two million illegal streams, akin to hundreds of millions of dollars. Sites, mostly using Google’s YouTube such as FILMDAILY.COM, ACCESSTVPRO.CO, enONLINE2LIVESTREAM.US, CRACKSTREAMSLIVE.COM, SPORTS-TODAY.CLUB, MY-SPORTS.CLUB, BILASPORT.COM, TRENDY CLIPS, MIKE, YOUR EXTRA, ECLIPT GAMING, ITSLILBRANDON, and others are causing significant damage not just to (Triller) Fight Club but content creators overall.

People put a lot of hard work, time and money into creating a product for the consumer and having it stolen and resold is terribly damaging,” the statement continues. “The good nes is they are not protected by VPN masking or other firewalls as their activites are criminal and grand theft so we will ultimately find them and prevail not just for us but content creators in general. We intend on working closely with the authorities as well to stop this highly illegal behaviour.

Scoring an opening round knockout win over Askren, Paul improved to 3-0 as a professional boxer, and following the event claimed that the pay-per-view spectacle sold 1.6 million buys total, generating $75 million.

Ben Askren has sent a message to Jorge Masvidal after his KO loss

Ben Askren has sent a message to former opponent Jorge Masvidal after his stunning KO loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC 261.

Masvidal was knocked out in the second round of his welterweight title fight with Kamaru Usman after the Nigerian landed a ferocious right hand on ‘Gamebred.’ Now Askren, a former foe of Masvidal has reacted to the KO saying: “I don’t believe in Karma. If you fight long enough shit happens.”

Telling his Twitter followers that he doesn’t believe in Karma, Askren is referencing his own shocking KO which came at the hands of Jorge Masvidal himself when he was knocked out in a UFC-record five seconds when the pair fought at UFC 239.

Ben Askren found himself on the end of another ‘viral KO’ last week when he was knocked out by Youtuber turned professional boxer in the first round of Askren’s professional boxing debut.

It would appear that Askren has turned down the chance to take a bite at Masvidal, especially after Masvidal trained Jake Paul for their fight.

Jorge Masvidal had appeared to be on a resurgence in his career after he knocked out Darren Till, Ben Askren and beat Nate Diaz for the ‘BMF’ title back in 2019.

However Masvidal now finds himself with back to back losses, both coming to the Welterweight Champion, Kamaru Usman however it is the first time Masvidal has been knocked out in the UFC. He is also now 3-4 in his last seven fights.

As for Askren he hasn’t fought in MMA since 2019 after a submission loss to Demian Maia with ‘Funky’ announcing his retirement from mixed martial arts shortly after the loss.

What would you like to see next for Masvidal, should he retire or should he try and rebound from his loss?
