Jake Paul is still taking shots at UFC’s biggest fighters, especially those he wants to face in the boxing ring. The list is long and the 24-year-old Paul has already knocked out Ben Askren. While he is set to fight former UFC champion, Tyron Woodley, next, ‘The Problem Child’ mocked several top-tier fighters once again on Father’s day.

Jake Paul takes aim at UFC’s top stars

Apart from Askren and Woodley, Paul posted pictures of Conor McGregor, Kamaru Usman, and Daniel Cormier on Twitter. That said, he has had a few unsavory back-and-forth interactions with them. The YouTuber-turned-boxer, who is undefeated at 3-0, wrote an uncanny caption, that hardly has any resemblance with reality. Despite that, Jake grabbed many eyeballs with his tweet.

Jake Paul had called out UFC star Conor McGregor a few months ago and offered him a multi-million showdown in the boxing ring. However, ‘Notorious’ gave no importance to the YouTuber and didn’t react. While Paul became adamant about getting the fight, he had to shift his aim towards other fighters later.

‘The Problem Child’ also has a social media skirmish with welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. They went back and forth, and Paul once again desired for a boxing scrap against ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’. Nevertheless, it went in vain as Usman redirected his focus towards his UFC career.

How did Jake’s issues with the UFC begin?

Despite being a keen follower of the promotion, Jake Paul has constantly ridiculed UFC head honcho Dana White and many other fighters. Paul was live in attendance at UFC 261 when he crossed paths with Daniel Cormier. The two entered into a war of words, which could have turned into a physical altercation. However, nothing like that happened. Meanwhile, ‘T-Wood’ will now enter the ring against Jake Paul on August 28.

They will headline a showtime PPV, with both men gunning for a career-defining victory. A loss to Jake could be fatal for Tyron’s career, who is on a four fight skid, and getting knocked out by Paul would only signal trouble. On the flip side, a victory for Tyron Woodley would take him to new heights.

Do you think Jake Paul will continue growing in the sport of boxing, and who is next on his list?
