The event, which was a resounding success, had a main event between former Olympian and UFC fighter Ben Askren and Youtuber turned boxer Jake Paul. Everyone touted the fight to be entertaining, but Askren got knocked out in the first round itself.

Since the fight has ended, fans have been speculating who Paul will fight next. Paul’s ultimate goal is to have a fight against Conor McGregor, but he has also called out Tyron Woodley and Daniel Cormier. Recently, during an interview, Dana White was talking about what he feels about all this.

“Why don’t you go fight a fuck**g boxer, What the f**k these guys keep talking to UFC guys for? Another fuck**g legal letter of these fuck**g idiots. Yeah, go talk to fuck**g boxers, what are you doing.”

White seemed quite angry at Paul and many stars like him who end up calling out UFC fighters. White clearly questioned them about why do they not call out any boxers. These sorts of fights are becoming popular day by day, and more often than not, a UFC fighter ends up competing in a boxing match.

As most of these matches end up being boxing fights, White seems right in asking why they don’t call out boxers for the fights.

What’s next for Jake Paul?

When it comes to finding his next opponent, Jake Paul seems to be in a bit of confusion. Paul is a boxer, but more than that he is a star and the attention his fight with Askren got, proves that.

Now fans and critics alike have been asking Paul to face someone who is a real boxer and has actual striking prowess.
