Jake Paul’s coach BJ Flores says his student can easily send popular UFC fighters Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal off. According to Flores, the aforementioned UFC stars will struggle to get the upper hand over “The Problem Child” in eight to ten laps inside the square circle.
In a recent interview with The Schmo, Flores said:
“There are a lot of names, a lot of guys, you obviously know guys who are in the UFC now who have contracts… Masvidal and Diaz and guys like that and McGregor, a lot of guys who would have good matches with Jake and he’s going to beat and, you know, that’s obviously my biased point of view but it’s going to be really hard for them to be able to do what they have to do to be able to beat Jake for eight or ten rounds. “
Watch the full interview below:
Paul is known to have fought UFC stars inside the boxing ring and has called McGregor, Diaz and Masvidal several times in the past. Initially, no one really paid attention to the captions of the YouTube star.
However, after knocking out former world champions Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, people started to take notice.
Paul is currently 5-0 in professional boxing and has four knockout wins.
