Jake Paul is special. The former YouTube and Disney star has managed to put on largely successful boxing cards, such as the one against Nate Diaz most recently. This is unprecedented in boxing, where eight-figure paydays are reserved for a few boxers at the very top. However, Paul makes tens of millions of dollars from each boxing match, in the same bracket as boxing’s biggest stars like Canelo Alvarez and Tyson Fury.

And after beating Diaz convincingly in August, ‘The Problem Child’ offered the UFC star a rematch in MMA for $10 million. The catch, however, is that the fight would be at the PFL, a UFC competitor that recently bought Bellator. Many speculate this is why Diaz is dragging his feet about the rematch, as it might displease UFC boss Dana White. Jake Paul, on the other hand, told MMAMania that he thinks Diaz is afraid of facing him; otherwise, he would not say no to the biggest payday of his career so far. However, this rubbed UFC commentator Michael Bisping the wrong way, who had sharp words for Paul.

On his YouTube channel, the former UFC middleweight champion analyzed Jake Paul’s recent comments calling out Diaz. The Englishman did not agree with anything the celebrity boxer said. Bisping was not on board with Paul’s idea that a rematch with Paul would be the biggest payday of Diaz’s career.

“He [Jake Paul] did double down and said ‘Listen the fight with Nate Diaz in mix martial arts in the PFL. That is what I want to do, the biggest payday that Nate Diaz will ever have’. And he’s talking out of his goddamn backside,” Bisping said on this YouTube channel.

Bisping felt that the former BMF title contender was one of the biggest MMA stars and did not need Paul to make copious amounts of money. “He said Nate Diaz needs it. Why does Nate Diaz need Jake Paul? He’s one of the biggest stars in mixed martial arts there is,” Bisping added.

Bisping further elaborated on this point. He believed that contrary to Jake Paul’s claims, Diaz would make more than $10 million if he were to fight Conor McGregor at the UFC. The former UFC champion was ticked off at Paul’s comments and advised him to shut up.

“A lot of options for Nate Diaz. More importantly, a third fight with Conor McGregor, right. Everyone wants to see that. The market for that is there, the demand for that is there, and the paycheck more than likely will be bigger than $10 million. So Jake Paul give it a rest, shut up, crawl back under the rock that you crawled out from.”

Hi, I am Kanishk and I am a UFC Writer at EssentiallySports. I love telling the stories of these magnificent fighters and this wildly unpredictable sport that is so frustrating and yet so joyous at the same time. I never really used to watch MMA, thinking it too crude or brutal a sport to deserve respect.
