Jake Paul wants to fight more UFC stars, as he slapped down UFC’s boss and took aim at some of the biggest names in UFC.
After knocking out one former MMA fighter, Jake Paul has called out the UFC’s biggest stars and issued a stinging message to its boss.
Paul kept his professional boxing record (5-0) in tact with a brutal knockout win over ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley in the sixth round of their second fight on Sunday.

The YouTuber was pumped up after his demolition win over Woodley, declaring he was willing to fight “anyone, anywhere, any place”.
While Paul impressed with his strong punching power, many fans pointed out he is yet to face a professional boxer in his career.
He issued a fiery barb in response to those who have criticised his boxing career.
“Suck my nuts,” he said after the fight.
Paul has preferred to face washed up UFC and basketball stars in the ring and it appears that trend won’t change anytime soon, judging by the wish list of fighters he mentioned after his victory.
“(Jorge) Masvidal and Nate Diaz, you all are some b****es for leaving this arena,” he said, referring to two UFC veterans.
“Because I know you don’t want that s**t.“I’ll take out both of y’all next. Just get out of your contract with Daddy Dana (UFC boss Dana White) and I’m going to f*** them up, too.”
Paul continued to rattle off a roll-call of UFC legends and current champions he wants to fight as he took aim at White, claiming he had “embarrassed” the entire UFC with his boxing wins.
“I embarrassed your whole company,” Paul said in his post-fight press conference.
“I just knocked out a five-time UFC champion and embarrassed your whole company
“Please, please let me get Kamaru Usman. Please let get Nate Diaz. Please let me get (Jorge) Masvidal. Please let me get (Conor) McGregor, because I’m going to embarrass them too. I promise you that Dana. I promise you that.”
McGregor’s UFC career is on the decline and his fight with Floyd Mayweather showed he is willing to venture into boxing for a big paycheck.
However, Diaz, Masvidal and Usman — the current welterweight champion — are all under contract with the UFC, meaning a boxing match-up with Paul in the near future is unlikely.
But Paul is a man on a mission and said his victories so far have has him in great shape to challenge a bona fide UFC star.
“He’s a five-time UFC champ, and I flatlined him,” Paul said of Woodley.
“Ben Askren, not really a striker, Nate Robinson, basketball player. But the fact that I proved I have one-punch power on a legend of this sport, people are going to be scared.
“That’s why Masvidal and Diaz got up out of their seats and left, because they didn’t want me to jump out of the ring and start going at them. People should be scared. Everyone’s on high alert.
“Everyone’s a target. No one’s safe. Hide your kids, hide your wife. I’m like Santa Claus, I’m coming down your chimney – I’ll f*ck everybody up. I’ll f*ck your whole family up.”
White will be reluctant to let some of his highest-profile UFC stars to risk injury with a boxing bout with Paul.
The UFC supremo clearly isn’t interested in Paul’s boxing career.
When asked if he was planning on watching his fight with Woodley, White flatly responded: “No”.
