Jake Paul is undefeated in his boxing career. He recently shocked the combat sports universe as he defeated Woodley for the second time. Many celebrities, including UFC stars like Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, were present at the event.

However, Diaz and Masvidal left the arena after Paul dropped Woodley in the sixth round. Later, ‘The Problem Child’ in his post-fight interview called out both fighters. He said, “I just knocked out the five-time UFC champion and embarrassed your whole company.”

“And please let me get Kamaru Usman. Please let me get Diaz. Please let me get Masvidal, please let me get McGregor. Because I’m gonna embarrass them too. I promise you that Dana.”

Furthermore, ‘Gamebred’ also challenged him to sign a one-fight deal with the UFC and fight him inside the octagon. Currently, Masvidal is signed with the UFC and he is eyeing the welterweight title. Hence, there’s little possibility of their fight coming to fruition.
