Flores wants Paul to accelerate up the ladder quickly and dreams to fight against an MMA star now.

“Nate was awkward like we knew he would be. Jake settled down and got his distance and landed the KO shot. People don’t realize Jake can really punch. Nobody even got to see the technical side last night. Jake has a lot more tools in the bag. I want him in there with a real MMA fighter next. These other influencers/trained pro athletes don’t stand a chance,”
