After being called in the 9th inning to pinch-hit for an defecting Lil Wayne on Saturday (November 28), Snoop Dogg emerged as the fan-favorite of the highly publicized Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. fight.
While the main event proved to be more about respecting the two legends’ boxing stamina than the sport itself, the Nate Robinson versus Jake Paul undercard gave debauched viewers the carnage they were seeking when the YouTube star gave the former NBA Slam Dunk champ not one but two first-class seats to the canvas, with the second ticket separating Robinson from his consciousness.
“Oh my GOD!” Snoop exclaimed after the first knockdown. “Lord have mercy! Oh, Jesus! Oh, Lawd! Precioussss Lawwdddd … take my handddd… lead my onnnnn … let me standdddd…”

A woozy Robinson found his face back in the reach of Paul’s fists not too soon after and Snoop was even quicker to react.
“Good night Irene,” Snoop quipped moments before Paul connected with the aforementioned face. “Oh, Lawd!” he screamed once again upon the stiff jab’s impact.
The moment gets even funnier when it clicks Snoop also has a top-charting Gospel album under his belt.

Ever the multi-talented entertainer, Snoop soon after channeled his recent Verzuz appearance and performed a medley of classics including “Bitch Please,” “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Down 4 My Niggas.” The performance was an impromptu lifesaver, seeing Lil Wayne was signed and sealed to be the musical headliner but didn’t deliver when it was time to hop on the plane.
Hours before the flight, he tweeted out a mea culpa, “Due to unforeseeable circumstances I won’t be performing tonight at the Tyson/Jones fight. Hope the event is still a success and much love to Triller. Love.”

YG, Swae Lee, French Montana, SAINt JHn and Wiz Khalifa also performed energetic sets and Ne-Yo rocked out the National Anthem.
According to Yahoo Sports reporter Kevin Iole, Tyson made $10 million from the fight, while Roy Jones Jr. raked in $3 million. The trickle-down effect module means all the rap stars made out with decent coin as well.

Snoop just made an extra 20 million. He's gonna be invited to comment on everything. It's no longer an event unless Snoop is there to comment.
