Controversial YouTube boxer Jake Paul claims UFC ‘BMF’ champ Jorge Masvidal keeps showing up in his DMs with ‘drunk’ messages.
The 4-0 boxer, who recently beat Tyron Woodley via split decision, says ‘Gamebred’ has been messaging him ever since he outpointed ‘T-Wood’ last month.
“The most recent one is Masvidal and I, literally in the DMs just going back and forth with each other. He can’t type by the way. Like he legit can’t type, it’s the weirdest thing.” Paul said on a recent episode of the FULL SEND podcast (h/t Middle Easy). “I said ‘Bro, you need to get a grammar book because all this writing is f—king your s—t up,’” Paul said, before reading a message from Jorge as an example. I think he was drunk when he was (messaging me).”
Paul then proceeded to read out one of Masvidal’s supposed drunken messages.
“I fight because I love it, man. Money ain’t shit. I got tons of it. ‘I fight so I can brake (sic) ‘fools’ faces and enjoy the ride. You know you could ever see and chage (sic).”
Is Paul stoking the fire for a potential boxing match with Masvidal — or is he just bored? The brash 24-year-old hasn’t announced his next move but is linked to a rematch with Woodley as well as a possible $30 million ‘winner-takes-all’ mega-fight against Vitor Belfort.
As for Masvidal, the ex-Miami-based street fighter currently has his sights set on a welterweight matchup with Nick Diaz if the latter ‘does his job’ against Robbie Lawler at UFC 266. He previously beat Nick’s younger brother, Nate Diaz, via third-round stoppage in a one-off BMF title bout at UFC 244.
