Whether we want to accept it or not, Jake Paul has been the most talked about fighter in martial arts lately. He’s dominated the headlines, knocked out former UFC champions and made a lot of money in the process.
While many “The Problem Child” still refuse to give their props as a true boxer due to the competition he faces, the YouTube star turned professional fighter is determined to take it all one fight at a time .
After seeing Tyron Woodley in their rematch (see here) last Sat. night (December 18, 2021), Paul called out Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz for leaving the arena before the fight was over and said he had them both defeated in the boxing ring. For his part, Masvidal replied that the multimillionaire couldn’t afford him, which in reality is not true.
In fact, Paul has officially put a $ 5 million offer on “Gamebred” as long as he can convince Dana White to give him the chance to jump into the boxing world for a one-off bout.
Jake Paul publicly offered Jorge Masvidal $ 5 million plus a percentage of PPV sales to fight him next: “Let’s make it happen. This is the highest sum you have ever received. Daddy Dana just needs to get you out of your contract. You work for the UFC, you’re a bitch. ” [IMPAULSIVE]

Masvidal responded quickly with his own counter offer of a guaranteed $ 20 million to get not only him paid, but UFC as well.
1. The ufc won’t let me go for change.
2. Do that guaranteed 20 plus Ppv and I’m sure the UFC is ok with that as long as I cancel their fee and then I’ll happily break your face. https://t.co/2rcWvGyBl3

How long has it been $ 5 million change?
Even so, Masvidal and Paul both know that UFC isn’t about getting its fighters into the boxing ring for a one-off event (unless you are that guy) which is why these callouts are pretty pointless. That’s why “Gamebred” Paul wants to make the jump into the Octagon, but not for an MMA fight.
“If the UFC still says no because the money is still too low, come to the UFC, sign a one-way deal and we can set up that I can only box in the cage,” he wrote on Twitter. “If I do something else, I’ll lose my wallet to you. Come by and get paid and displayed, ”he concluded.
Again, this is a scenario that is unlikely to happen as White has put on record that he is not interested in doing business with the Paul brothers. On the other hand, white has been known to change his mind on some occasions.
