Days after his knockout win over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, Jake Paul is already trying to land his next opponent.
The YouTuber turned professional boxer put out a fight offer to Jorge Masvidal. Speaking on his brother’s podcast Impaulsive, Paul responded to Masvidal’s recent comments saying he won’t fight him and made him a lucrative offer in the process.
“Masvidal was like, ‘I either fight the best people or I fight for money. And you’re neither of those. You ain’t paying the right amount of money,’” Paul said. “Masvidal, I have an offer for you right now – $5 million guarantee, plus percentage of the pay-per-views.
“That’s the most you have ever done as a fighter, ever. So now you can’t say, ‘I either fight the best people or I fight for money.’ $5 million guarantee, plus pay-per-view. Let’s make it happen. That’s the most you have ever gotten paid. Period.”
Masvidal is under exclusive contract with the UFC and is not allowed to fight anywhere else unless given permission by the UFC. Dana White hates Jake Paul, so that would likely never happen.
“Daddy Dana just has to let you out of your contract,
Paul said. “You work for the UFC. You’re a b*tch basically.”
It didn’t take long for Masvidal to respond to these comments.
“The UFC isn’t gonna let me go for chump change,” Masvidal wrote.
“Make that 20 guaranteed plus Ppv and I’m sure the UFC will be ok with it as long as I break them off their fee and then I’ll gladly break your face.”
Paul is 5-0 as a professional boxer with wins over former UFC fighters Woodley and Ben Askren.
