Jake Paul extended his professional boxing record to 5-0 (4 KOs) when he viciously knocked out Tyron Woodley in their boxing rematch on Saturday 18th of December. Paul was initially paired with Tommy Fury, but the Brit pulled out with an injury to his rib, opening the door for the Woodley rematch. The bout was back and forth until Paul landed a thunderous right hand which separated “The Chosen One” from consciousness in round six.
Jorge Masvidal Responds to Jake Paul After Callout
In his post-fight interview, Jake Paul called out UFC standouts Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, saying, “I’ve knocked out every single person that I have fought. Masvidal and Nate Diaz, y’all are some b*tches for leaving this arena. I’ll take out both of y’all next, get out of that contract with daddy Dana.”
After the public callout, Jorge Masvidal published a video on his Twitter in which he addressed Paul.
Jorge Masvidal Fires Back
Masvidal said, “Now, to address that little b*tch, what’s his face. Listen, man, you can’t fcking afford me. Me and those other names you mentioned, you can’t afford. I know what you pay, you talk a big game, you say $50 million here, $100 million there. Bullsh*t.”
Jorge Masvidal went on to say, “Let me tell you a little secret you don’t know, I fight for money, or I fight the best in the world. You are neither, you understand? I know it hurts. I’ll tell you what, come on over to the UFC, sign a one-fight deal, let Dana give you whatever he has to pay you, and I’ll break your jaw in front of the whole world. I promise you that. If you really want it to come and get it. None of that boxing s**t where I can’t slam you on your spinal cord, leave you in a wheelchair for life. Come over so we can do everything.”
Whatever your opinion of Jake Paul, he continues to prove himself in the boxing world and seems intent on drawing more MMA stars over into the ring. Both Masvidal and Diaz are currently under UFC contract, so it will be interesting to see how the situation and rivalries develop. Who do you think should be next for Paul? Should he venture into the UFC?
