Jake Paul continues to silence his critics. On December 18th, the YouTube star knocked out former UFC fighter Tyron Woodley in the sixth round of their much-hyped boxing match. Paul improved his pro fight record to a perfect 6-0.
Jake did his usual share of trash talking in the aftermath. He ignored critics who said he hasn’t fought any real boxers yet. He instead called out UFC stars Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal. Paul also said he is going to start MMA training with Team Khabib.
TMZ Sports has reported that there is another training offer on the table if Jake Paul is interested. Current Bellator MMA Featherweight Champion A.J. McKee has offered to train Paul if he’s up for it. McKee is ranked the #1 pound-for-pound fighter in the promotion and has an undefeated record of 18 wins and 0 losses.
“Sh*t, he better come train with me, but he can do good.
If he wanna do it, he can do it. I think he’s already shown his skills in what he can do in boxing, so if he wants to take it to a different lane, why not?”
Jake Paul says he is 100% committed to doing an MMA fight. He says he doesn’t see why he wouldn’t be successful. Paul wants to take on Conor McGregor eventually.
Jake Paul has had a controversial career thus far in the fight game. Even his haters can’t deny his early success. He will eventually find himself punching above his weight. A.J. McKee thinks that with the proper training, he can hold his own in the cage.
