YouTuber Jake Paul says combating ladies’s UFC icon Amanda Nunes would be a “waste of time” and the promo need to enable a fight in between him and Conor McGregor because it needs the $50 million available.
Paul has been angling for his next challenger given that knocking out previous NBA star Nate Robinson in the 2nd round of their fight on the undercard of the Mike Tyson versus Roy Jones Jr occasion in November.
That was Paul’s 2nd success in 2 main boxing bouts– and the 23-year-old now has his sights trained on a huge name from the world of Mixed Martial Arts for his next dance partner in the ring.
Some of the names tossed around up until now consist of retired previous UFC middleweight champ Michael Bisping, ex-welterweight competitor Ben Askren and Bellator Mixed Martial Arts fighter Dillon Danis– a buddy and training partner of previous two-weight UFC king Conor McGregor.
UFC manager Dana White, on the other hand, has stated he might let loose Brazilian ladies’s two-weight queen Amanda Nunes on Paul, stating: “’I’m thinking of letting [her] knock his a** out.”
Nunes has given that stated she was up for a cross-gender contest, tweeting“I’m in!”
But Paul– who recently ridiculed members of the Mixed Martial Arts world consisting of White and McGregor in a savage satire clip — has duplicated that his objective is a profitable face-off with McGregor, declaring once again that he had actually an ensured $50 million deal on the table.
“I wouldn’t fight her,” Paul informed TMZ when inquired about a fight withNunes “Waste of time. No one knows who she is.
“Yeah [she’s the greatest female fighter of all time], but she has 1 million followers on Instagram, sh*t engagement.
“There’s not a lot of hype there. Plus, there’s no history.”
Paul released what appeared to be a staged ‘toilet roll’ trick on Bellator fighter Danis a week earlier and has likewise made adventurous efforts to hook up with the jiu-jitsu expert’s sweetheart, design Savannah Montano.
The YouTuber stated battling Danis made good sense because he was “butt-hurt” about his methods to Montano.
“I wanna knock out Dillon because we’ve been talking sh*t back and forth for 2 years, I’ve hooked up with his girlfriend, he’s all butt-hurt about it, there’s history there,” Paul stated.
“And, Dillon is Conor’s best friend, and ultimately I want Conor.
“So, why would I waste my time doing some bullsh*t like [boxing Nunes?]”
According to Paul, UFC chief Dana White had actually dropped the ball on the settlements over a fight with McGregor, and would be desperate for the money available.
“Why does Dana White say, ‘Oh, I don’t want Jake to fight Conor because Conor is one of the greatest fighters of all-time, but so is Amanda Nunes,’ so is he saying like women are inferior?,” Paul questioned.
“I don’t know what he’s doing. He’s fumbling this one, he’s not making sense with what he’s saying.
“First of all, the UFC needs that money, it’s $50 million in the bank account, that’s the biggest fight offer that’s ever been put on the table unless it’s Floyd Mayweather.”
Elsewhere, Paul’s bro and fellow YouTuber Logan is set to deal with previous five-weight ring icon Mayweather in a rather implausible exhibit boxing bout on February 20.
