Jake Paul has talked trash about almost every fighter on the UFC roster. However, there is one fighter that the YouTube sensation wants no piece of.
The YouTube sensation turned boxer, owes a lot of his success to the UFC. The younger Paul brother has completely rattled the UFC fanbase with his antics and attacks on fans’ favorite UFC fighters and also the president of the promotion for the last year. Jake Paul has never been in the good books of UFC fans since his fight against Tyron Woodley.
Jake after two wins over former UFC fighters, Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren gained the confidence to talk trash to almost all the UFC fighters. The YouTuber has called out the biggest stars of the promotion and has dared to face them even in the UFC octagon. However, there is one current superstar who Paul would never want to face. In a recent podcast with his UFC fighter friend, Sean O’Malley, Jake Paul reveals the name of the fighter he wouldn’t want to face in the octagon.
Jake Paul has high praise for UFC champion Israel Adesanya
In the Sean “Sugar” O’Malley podcast, The Timbosugar Show, Jake made a special appearance and sat down for an interview. During the interview, Sean asked Jake about his beef with the UFC and his favorite fighters. Jake Paul names Israel Adesanya as his favorite fighter currently and calls him the scariest to face in a fight.
“Honestly bro he is probably the only fighter in the UFC that I wouldn’t fight. He is tall as f**k, and I mean, his striking…He’s arguably one of the best strikers, top 3 ever in the history of the sport. There are a lot of UFC fighters…I think he is literally the only one who I wouldn’t fight,” said Jake in the interview with Sean O’Malley.
Jake has also received a lot of support from Adesanya in the past during his fights with Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley when almost the entire UFC promotion was going against the YouTube boxer. Jake and Izzy have also met each other in the past and the YouTuber has admitted to being a huge fan of The Stylebender.
