Jorge Masvidal vs Colby Covington- Jake Paul

Looks like Youtuber-cum-boxer Jake Paul will never stop chasing the flaws of the UFC and its megastars, Jorge Masvidal and Conor McGregor. It’s been more than a year now that Paul has been adamantly talking about the UFC’s Fighter Pay, the downfall of multiple UFC fighters like Masvidal and McGregor as per him, and anything and everything that helps to nuke UFC President Dana White as well.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

Paul is 5-0 undefeated as a boxer and his last 3 fights have been the likes of knockout wins over former MMA world champions, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley as well as a decision win over Woodley as well. Paul has now and then also teased interest in fighting with MMA rules as well. However, he is fully invested in promoting the sport of boxing through his promotional firm, Most Valuable Promotions, which has signed women’s boxing great Amanda Serrano, who’s going to fight in the first-ever female boxing match headliner of Madison Square Garden against another boxing great in Katie Taylor.

Jake Paul believes the UFC’s profits have increased by 6,200% within a span of 17 years

Jorge Masvidal and Jake Paul

Paul took to Twitter to talk about 2 things he believed to be the facts of the day: “2 facts of the day: #1 Masvidal is a bitch for ambushing Colby. Couldn’t hurt him in the cage so try to blindside him? #2 UFC always says it’s increased fighter pay 600% since 2005. Per Huddle Up, UFC revenue is up 1,700% since 05 and PROFITS up by 6,200% [mind-blown emoji] 10x fighter pay!!!

Paul is referring to the fighter’s pay situation that the UFC is often targetted for, in the way that it pays its fighters less than what they deserve or should get. Paul is also talking about Masvidal recently getting into a physical altercation with the latter’s bitter rival Colby Covington, two weeks after Masvidal’s loss to Covington via unanimous decision at UFC 272. What do you make of Paul shooting two targets with one bullet within a day? Do you think Paul does that for attention from the UFC to consider signing him or is it just Paul being genuine about things going wrong in the UFC, and does his bad blood feels real against Masvidal?
