Dana White has had enough of Jake Paul’s shtick following his viral knockout of Nate Robinson last month.

White has pleaded with Amanda Nunes to step up and KO the YouTube star following Paul’s outrageous callout of Conor McGregor earlier this week.

“I’m thinking of letting Amanda Nunes knock his ass out,” White told TMZ in a recent interview.

Nunes, it appears, is all in, as the UFC women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion would love nothing better than to serve Paul some humble pie and, hopefully, shut him up for good.

“I’m in,” Nunes tweeted to the UFC and Dana White on Wednesday.

Paul is 2-0 as a professional boxer but has never fought in MMA and would be eaten alive by any top UFC fighter, male or female. Nunes (20-4 MMA, 13-1 UFC) is on a whopping eleven-fight win streak and #1 in the UFC women’s pound-for-pound rankings. The Brazilian phenom is widely considered one of, if not the, best female fighters of all time.
