Jake Paul has shot several MMA fighters, but there is one he would never denounce or troll.
After Paul took out Ben Askren, several UFC fighters started shooting Paul, and the brash YouTuber turned boxer fired back. However, he says the only MMA fighter he won’t troll is Khabib Nurmagomedov as he says he has too much respect for him, but he would want to box him if the opportunity presented itself.
“I have so much respect for him, I wouldn’t troll him,” Paul said on the Complete podcast submission. “I was like, ‘You are the best, but let’s fight.'”
Nurmagomedov is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time and retired undefeated, so it’s hard not to respect him. It’s also good to see Jake Paul have this respect for Nurmagomedov who is now retired. Yet it is also highly unlikely that Nurmagomedov will box Paul one day.
As for Paul, he just picked up a split decision victory over Tyron Woodley in his first fight on Showtime. The victory propelled him to an unbeaten 4-0 record and he continues his boxing career.
It’s unclear who he will fight next, but Paul mentioned Tommy Fury as his next opponent, the two have also been linked to each other. Still, for his next fight, the undefeated boxer says he wants to get into a fight where people think he didn’t shoot a win.
“I was the favorite so now I almost want to get into a fight where it’s like ‘there’s no way he’s going to do that’,” said Paul. “I just want to keep proving people wrong because I could take a social media influencer and fight them right away and make a decent sack. It’s just a tough sell because I did it all.
