Not too long ago, Jake Paul issued a challenge to Dana White and wanted the UFC boss to raise the salary of fighters. He was also seeking revenue sharing and medical care for UFC athletes in the long run. In turn, Paul said he would retire from boxing, enter the USADA testing pool and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC.

He doubled down on his challenge by reiterating that he doesn’t take steroids. In fact, he went on the say that he is a major advocate for all UFC fighters to receive the proper testing to keep the sport safe and fair. White has vehemently challenged this notion and truly believes that Jake Paul has been gaining an unfair advantage in competition.

Who does Jake Paul fight next?

‘The Problem Child’ has made it clear that he wants to face megastar Jorge Masvidal next, be it in the ring or the cage. He has thrown around many other UFC fighters like Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz as well. However, given that all these fighters are under contract, it’s very unlikely that any of them will face Paul.

However, Tommy Fury could be an option that Jake Paul will have to revisit in his next match. Both men were scheduled to face each other until the younger Fury pulled out of the contest and Tyron Woodley was forced to step in. The rematch with Woodley reportedly only sold 65K PPVs and Paul will want to up the ante with his next clash.

The storyline is inbuilt in his bout against Tommy Fury and there is a certain amount of bad blood as well. Furthermore, John Fury and Tyson Fury have already provided many soundbites and hyped up the match-up with Paul. Time will be the best indication to see which direction Jake Paul goes from here.
