YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul went on an explicit rant yesterday as his ongoing feud with the entire UFC roster continues.
Whether you like him or you don’t, it’s hard to deny the impact Jake Paul is beginning to have on the world of mixed martial arts. He’s already knocked out Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, he’s gone back and forth with a string of other UFC fighters, and he’s pushing more for better fighter pay than the majority of people in the sport.
He’s expected to return to the squared circle in August and when he does, it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see another MMA star across the ring from him.
During a media scrum earlier this week in New York, ‘The Problem Child’ couldn’t help but call out a few individuals who have been going after him on social media – including Michael Bisping.
“I also think it’s a silly callout [Bisping],” Paul said. “That’s an easy fight for me, it’s a one-round fight, he’s an old guy. Here’s the thing about me, if someone talks s***, I have to f*** them up. I have a f***ing problem. If someone talks s***, let’s f***ing settle it in the ring. Let’s see if you’re really about that or if you’re just talking on Twitter. You feel me?”
“So these guys — these ‘UFC champions’ — who think they’re so tough, I’ll beat the f*** out of all of them and I got time,” he continued. “I got time to do it, I’m young. So any of them can come and get it as fast as we get these deals done, I’ll knock them all out. Bisping wants to talk s***? Cool. Let’s get in the ring, motherf***er. You p***y. If anyone wants to talk s***, get in the f***ing ring, p***y. [Jorge] Masvidal, you p***y. All these guys are all talk, they’re cap, and their dad Dana [White] f***ing owns them. They’re a bunch of f***ing p***ies that have to hide behind the f***ing contract.”
The next assignment
Before competing himself, Paul is focusing on his role as a promoter for Most Valuable Promotions. This weekend, he’ll be cheering on Amanda Serrano as she prepares to go head to head with Katie Taylor in what many are describing as the biggest fight in the history of women’s boxing.
