jake paul apparently is willing to accept an MMA fight in the UFC, but it would be against Conor McGregor, and there are conditions.
On Saturday, Paul directed a tweet at UFC president Dana White that upped the ante on the possibility (albeit a long shot) of bringing the YouTube star-turned-pro boxer into the Octagon.
“How about a fight of 1 [sic] UFC deal to fight Conor,” Paul said. On twitter. “If I win, you accept my proposal for UFC fighter pay and health care. If I lose, I donate all my money to all the UFC fighters who make less than $50,000 per fight and never mention the UFC again. Treatment?”
Paul’s proposal comes a day later tweeted that he would “knock Conor out in boxing or MMA. right hand of God.” That message was a reaction to a training video McGregor posted of himself throwing punches with a trainer.
For his part, McGregor didn’t say no to a possible fight with Paul when asked about it last month at Bellator 275 in Dublin.
This is the second time this year that Paul has made a proposal to White declaring his willingness to fight in the UFC under certain terms. His previously mentioned “pay and healthcare proposal for UFC fighters” could be a reference to his New Year’s Day message in which he said he would “immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC” if White agreed. provide long-term health care to all. UFC fighters, something that currently does not exist.
Paul, who is 4-0 as a boxer with knockout wins over former MMA champions Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, has been a thorn in White’s side for more than a year. Paul has often spoken out in favor of better pay and general treatment for UFC fighters.
The feud between Paul and White reached a new level earlier this year when White publicly responded to one of Paul’s tweets. In return, Paul released a rap song aptly titled “Dana White Diss Track.”
