Askren, who has a 19-2 record in the UFC, didn’t seem upset after the loss. A video surfaced on the internet of Askren backstage and it appeared as if he was smiling and uninjured. According to CBS Sports, Askren made about $ 500,000 in disclosed pay for the bout.

Paul landed a big right hook on Askren, who eventually got to his feet, but referee Brian Stutts decided to end the fight because he believed that Askren wasn’t in shape to continue. The fight was stopped at the 1:59 mark.

Paul dedicated the victory to his security guard Shamir Bolivar, known as Shadow, who passed away 10 days prior to the fight.
