Is Jake Paul rubbing too many people the wrong way?

Shortly before the event, Paul put out a tweet stating, “A month ago every MMA fighter was like I’ll box Jake Paul and beat the f**k out of him. Now everyone is like, I’ll fight him but it has to be MMA, it’s the only real fight!”

He followed that up with another tweet aimed at the UFC and the MMA community saying, “UFC UnfairPay Fighting Clowns”

Floyd Mayweather is the most recent addition to a list of people who do not seem to like ‘The Problem Child’. Ever since his win against Askren, Paul has continuously fired shots at the MMA community and called out almost everyone in and around his weight class.

At UFC 261, when he was in attendance, he almost got into an altercation with Daniel Cormier as well. And more recently, he got into a war of words with Kamaru Usman on Twitter. 

After the incident with Floyd Mayweather, the MMA community once again rallied in support of ‘Money’. The likes of Tyron Woodley, Marlon Moraes, and others tweeted condemning Pauls’s disrespectful actions.
