Extending his win streak in the boxing ring to 5-0, celebrity fighter Jake Paul is ready for his next matchup — now focusing on two staples of the UFC to set up his next pay-per-view event.
Paul was up to his usual hijinks: bating bona fide fighters, including Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz.
Masvidal was the fighter Jake concentrated on, calling his contract with the UFC chump change when suggesting that their brawl could go for a payday of $5 million.
“I want to fight both of [Diaz and Masvidal], for sure. It would be the biggest money fight for either one of them, and Masvidal’s like ‘I either fight the best people or I fight for money, and you’re neither one of those. You ain’t paying the right amount of money,” announced Paul, on his brother Logan Paul’s podcast.
“Masvidal, I got an offer for you right now,” Jake added. “Five million guarantee, plus percentage of pay-per-views, so that’s the most you would have ever made as a fighter. Ever. So now you can’t say ‘I either fight the best people or I fight for money.’ Five million dollar guarantee, plus pay-per-view. Let’s make it happen. That’s the most you would have ever have gotten paid. Period. Times Triple.”
He threw in a final jab at Masvidal: “Daddy Dana [White] just has to let you out of your contract. You work for the UFC, you’re a b****.”
The younger Paul brother has defeated UFC fighter Tyron Woodley twice (winning both times) and knocked out the likes of NBA retiree Nate Robinson, YouTube personality AnEsonGib and former wrestler / UFC combatant Ben Asken — who’s been on the receiving end of a Masvidal knockout.
Considering the cheddar involved in these online celebrity battles normally going for millions a match, Masvidal would surely be tempted to give Jake Paul his first tally in the loss column to the tune of a couple million.
