Jake Paul pushes for Masvidal bout, will leave UFC’s ‘exploitative business’ alone if he loses

Jake Paul is pushing for a boxing match with Jorge Masvidal, and he’s raising the stakes.

After securing a win over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, Jake Paul wants the “toughest challenge” against the “toughest guy.” The next name he has in mind is that of BMF champion Jorge Masvidal.

“Gamebred,” however, is under contract with the UFC. Instead, bossman Dana White offered a counterproposal for “The Problem Child.”

“I f—ng guarantee you this: you ain’t gonna see Jake Paul calling Anderson Silva out. That I f—ng promise you,” White told the media after Tuesday’s Contender Series. “He’s his size, and he’s actually good. He’s old, which is what Jake Paul likes, to fight old guys. He likes to fight old guys that are too small and that are absolutely, positively washed up.

“Hey Jake, Anderson’s out. Anderson Silva’s out. Jake? JAKE!? JAKE!!?”

Paul responded shortly after, and he’s raising the stakes.

“Anderson’s out… JAKE JAKE JAKE..”

I want your star talent. Your “in their prime” strikers so I can exploit their lack of Boxing ability.

So let’s do this Me vs. Jorge Masvidal and Amanda Serrano vs. Amanda Nunes…

If we win, you let any of your fighters fight me going forward. If we lose, I leave you and your exploitative business alone.


The 24-year-old Internet sensation and former Disney talent says a huge payday is waiting for Masvidal, should he agree.

Jorge… Got some millions for you to fight. Is your daddy gonna let you come out? Gonna let you come out and play, daddy Dana? F—ng bitch.

If he ever lets you out of that contract, I’m baptizing the f—k out of you.

The feeling is mutual with Masvidal, who is more than willing to “put a hurting” on either Paul brother.
