The call-out got an immediate response from UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal. ‘Gamebred‘ didn’t hold back and asked Paul to sign a one-fight contract in the UFC and step inside the octagon.

He said, “Listen, man, you can’t f**king afford me. You understand? Me and those other names you mentioned, you can’t f**king afford. I know what you pay. You talk of big game. You say $50 million here, $100 million there. Bulls**t.”

“I’ll tell you what, come on over to the UFC. Sign a one-fight deal, let Dana give you whatever the f**k he’s gotta pay you. I’ll break your jaw in front of the whole world, man. I promise you that. If you really want it, come get it.”
