Although Jake Paul and Jorge Masvidal seemed to have hit it off ahead of Paul’s boxing bout with Ben Askren. It seems like the two aren’t on good terms anymore. Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley is just around the corner. The highly anticipated event has captured the undivided attention of MMA and boxing fans alike.

 Jake Paul has certainly proven his dedication to the sport of boxing, working on his skills and strength development, and is confident in his ability to outbox Woodley. However, since many believe the 24-year-old has bitten off more than he can chew this time around, this could be the end of Paul’s boxing endeavors.  

And while that could be the case, UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal believes a loss to a decorated fighter like Woodley won’t be a devastating setback. The BMF title holder recently appeared in an interview with DAZN boxing, where he gave his thoughts on what a loss to Woodley would mean for Jake Paul.

“If he loses to Woodley, or when he loses to Woodley, what he should do is show how much he really wants it, you know. You want to box? What’s one loss going to do? Get out there, keeping getting after it, you lost to an ex-world champion, doesn’t mean anything. Go beat up another four, five guys, people will kinda forget that loss, give you a pass. You’re a Disney guy anyways, fighting UFC champions. Everybody’s going to give you a pass. And you get right back after you show the world how bad you want it, you know, win or lose.”      

Even if Masvidal’s comment may result from his falling out with Paul, there is some truth to it. Nevertheless, we will only know what’s next for Paul come fight night.

When will Jorge Masvidal fight next?

One of the biggest stars in the sport, Jorge Masvidal, recently suffered his second loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC 261 via knockout in the second round.

And although ‘Gamebred’ accepted his first knockout loss with class, the 36-year-old is adamant to work his way back to a third title shot. Masvidal is looking to make a comeback sometime in December.

There are several fights for Masvidal in the welterweight division. A matchup with Leon Edwards or even a rematch with Stephen Thompson, would make sense at this point.

Regardless, fans will wait with bated breath for ‘Gamebred‘ to make his next appearance inside the octagon.
