UFC President Dana White has a warning for YouTuber Jake Paul.
Paul has been calling out a number of MMA fighters for a boxing match. From Conor McGregor to Ben Askren, Paul has been vocal about picking a fight. Paul has gone as far as to insult McGregor’s fiancee, Dee Devlin.
White has joked that he would have UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Amanda Nunes dismantle Paul, who has responded by saying Nunes isn’t a big enough name. The UFC boss appeared on the SHOUT Buffalo podcast to respond to Paul (via MMAJunkie.com).
“Amanda Nunes will knock that kid out. To even think about that guy fighting, he’s like, ‘I’m never going to fight a woman.’ You shouldn’t. You shouldn’t because she’ll put you in a coma. That guy is just some kid off the street. One of the big problems with him right now, he’s lucky there’s a pandemic. He’s talking smack about real people – real people that he could run into at a restaurant some night and things like that. This isn’t a real guy. This is just some kid on YouTube.”
Paul has a pro boxing record of 2-0 with two knockouts. He’s coming off second-round knockout victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.
Paul’s trainer BJ Flores has said he hopes the YouTube star fights an MMA competitor next. Paul claims he made an offer to fight McGregor and has bashed White for saying he has no interest in booking the fight.
