In 2022, he trended over the internet regarding an MMA debut, possibly in the UFC. However, citing the beef he shares with UFC supremo Dana White, it’s unlikely ‘The Problem Child’ will ever strike a UFC contract.

Jake Paul came up with an unusual statement. He tweeted, “deal. only if I fight you first.”

This is not the first time Paul looked to trace a fight with any UFC star. Since the beginning, his radar has always been on Dana White’s fighters. A few days back, he yet again called out the elites like Conor McGregor.

Paul gave a challenge to Dana White with a few conditions in his list. He added that he would retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if White accepted those conditions. However, ‘The Eagle’s entry has made things interesting.
