“Tell my son to don’t run away. To meet his daddy. There is no way out. I got $30 million, winner takes all.” Belfort texted Helwani.

Paul responded to the message right then and called out Belfort and other MMA fighters for their ‘poor boxing skills’.

He said, “Cool, put it into escrow. No problem. Let’s see the proof of funds in escrow. The notion that these MMA fighters think that I’m scared of them is funny or like I’m running away from them. Like dude, I’ve fought 4 times in the past 2 years.”

“You can’t even really fight more than that if you’re doing big fights. I’m going back to back to back on these bit*h a*s MMA fighters. Like line them up, I will take all of them down. You guys cannot box, I out-boxed a 5-time UFC fu*king champion.”

Jake Paul talks about defeating Tyron Woodley

In his last fight ‘The Problem Child’ faced former UFC champion, Tyron Woodley. Woodley is well known for his striking capabilities and many believed he would be the one to defeat Paul. However, that wasn’t the case, as Paul won the fight via a split decision.

Therefore, as ‘The Problem Child’ defeated one of the best UFC fighters of all time. He is confident that he can take on someone like Belfort and easily defeat him.

He said, “Vitor Belfort didn’t even get close to winning that many championships. The notion that you guys are scared, you guys cannot box for sh*t. There was not one moment in the fight where Tyron was out-boxing me, not one.”
