Jake ‘The Problem Child’ Paul not only called out Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal on The MMA Hour hosted by Ariel Helwani. Instead, he also spoke of an interesting UFC vs Boxing event that would see ‘The Lioness’ Amanda Nunes take on Amanda Serrano.

“My team and I are actively in discussions with multiple potential opponents and that includes Anderson Silva, assuming he can get the right medical clearances and deal with his contractual commitments.”

“On your show you asked my preferred next opponent- easy answer since Jorge (Masvidal) said he’s going to break my face. So yeah, I want Jorge and his teammate Amanda Nunes, who Dana previously disrespected by offering to allow her to fight me but not his male fighters, can have the honor of boxing pound-for-pound great Amanda Serrano.” 

However, Dana White had some words for Jake Paul.

Dana White sat down during a press conference after the Dana White’s Contender Series and replied to Jake Paul, reminding ‘The Problem Child’ that Masvidal is still under contract with the UFC. However, White also challenged Paul to fight Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva. The UFC President said Paul would not take the fight because he knows Silva would beat him in a boxing match.

Anderson Silva looks better than ever after transitioning to boxing and picking up two impressive wins. First, he beat the former boxing champion, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Then, he beat Tito ‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’ Ortiz.

Who do you think Paul should face in the ring next? Would a UFC vs Boxing event sell good PPVs?
