Jake Paul’s current character sees him as a heel who loves getting under the skin of his opponents before every boxing match. Jake Paul isn’t afraid to call out top UFC stars for fights as he has called out the likes of Nate Diaz on numerous occasions for a fight. At one time he even called Nate Diaz every day to book a fight against him.
The Problem Child continues to make outrageous statements and ridiculous boasts for attention. For the most part, it certainly is working as fans simply want to see Jake Paul get his face punched.
This includes the times he has compared himself to Muhammad Ali and even stated that Ali was never tested like he was. Paul even revealed that he was suffering from memory loss after over 20 concussions.
Recently, Jake Paul received an open invitation to compete in a fight in Bellator by CEO Scott Coker. In response to the open invitation, Jake Paul even showed off a video where he was seemingly preparing for a fight in MMA.
While speaking on his YouTube Channel, UFC star Sean O’Malley talked about Jake Paul possibly making his way to MMA. O’Malley made it clear that he doubts Paul can prosper in the world of MMA.
“Jake comes in MMA, I don’t know dude… it takes so long, I think it’s going to take a longer time to do what he did in boxing in MMA. In boxing he did it fast and it was impressive and you know he knocked out Tyron Woodley and that’s crazy but to go into MMA and have success, it’s a different level. There’s just too many things you have to get good at.”
We will have to wait and see whether The Problem Child will end up fighting in an MMA bout at Bellator or not. Many fans would love to see him compete inside the Octagon as well.
