For a long time, Jorge Masvidal has been feuding with YouTube star turned boxer, Jake Paul. Both clearly despise one other and claim they would beat each other in a fight.

Recently, on an episode of IMPAULSIVE, Jake Paul called out Masvidal and offered him a large sum of money to fight him in a boxing match. However, Masvidal is under contract with the UFC and it is quite unlikely that he will face a YouTuber in a boxing match, that too, outside of the UFC.

Jake Paul took on the former UFC champion, Tyron Woodley, in a boxing match earlier this month. Even though Jake is such an established star and Woodley is one of the most known fighters, the pay-per-view did not do very well in terms of numbers.

Masvidal took to Twitter to troll the ‘Problem Child’ and responded to the call-out he received earlier from Jake Paul. Masvidal wrote,” Bi*ch boy can’t afford the big boys Never again do I want to hear my name associated with the fake. 3 0 5 day is coming”

Jake Paul’s first fight against Tyron Woodley didn’t do very great on pay-per-view buys either. The fighter had claimed that it did over 1.5 million in pay-per-view buys, but in reality, the card sold approximately 500,000 pay-per-view buys. (source: MMA Fighting.)

Jake Paul’s offer for Jorge Masvidal

Jake Paul offered Jorge Masvidal an insane amount to take him on in a boxing match.

Masvidal is like… I either fight the best people or I fight for money and you’re neither one of those. You ain’t paying the right amount of money. Masvidal, I got a offer for you right now. Five million dollar guarantee, plus a percentage of pay-per-views. That’s the most you would ever have made as a fight, ever,” said Jake Paul on the IMPAULSIVE podcast.

That is a huge amount of money and is likely that Masvidal may not make the same amount of money in one fight at the UFC. However, ‘Street Jesus’ still has a couple of fights left in his UFC contract. Therefore, he is bound to not fight outside the UFC until his contract expires.
