Masvidal lays out demands for Jake Paul after YouTuber called out UFC star

Jorge Masvidal has demanded a mega sum of cash to fight Jake Paul.

The 37-year-old wants a fee of $20million (£15m) plus pay-per-view cash to get in the ring with the YouTuber, who is fresh off another victory over Tyron Woodley – this time by knockout.

The UFC star gave a frank response to the possibility of fighting Paul.

“I either fight the best people or I fight for money. And you’re neither of those. You ain’t paying the right amount of money”, Masvidal said bluntly after being called out by the American for a boxing fight.

Paul soon responded with some savage remarks of his own and also made an offer he believes his potential opponent cannot refuse.

“I have an offer for you right now, $5 million guarantee, plus percentage of pay-per-views,” he tweeted.

“That’s the most you would have ever have made as a fight, ever. So now you can’t say, 'I either fight the best people or I fight for money.' $5 million guarantee, plus pay-per-view.

“Let’s make it happen. That’s the most you have ever gotten paid. Period, time triple. Daddy Dana just has to let you out of your contract. You work for the UFC. You’re a b***h basically.”

Masvidal, who owns the record or the fastest knockout in UFC history at five seconds, tweeted his retort.

Do you thin Jorge Masvidal should fight Jake Paul? Let us know in the comments section.

“1. The UFC isn’t gonna let me go for chump change," he said.

“2. Make that 20 guaranteed plus PPV and I’m sure the UFC will be ok with it as long as I break them off their fee and then I’ll gladly break your face.

“If the UFC still says no because the money is still too low then come over to the UFC, sign a 1 fight deal and we can stipulate I can only box in the cage.

“If I do anything other than that I will forfeit my purse to you. Come on over and get paid and laid out.”

Paul faced Woodley for the second time this past weekend due to the withdrawal of his original opponent, Tommy Fury.

Fury, 22, watched the bout and was less than impressed, and was left perplexed by Paul's desire to fight stars who are not natural boxers.

“I seen after the fight he was calling out all these MMA people, I don’t get what he’s trying to achieve by calling out UFC people, the reality star told Dev Sahni for Unibet Lowdown.

“He wants to be a boxer, doesn’t he? So fight the boxer, stop calling out all these wrestlers and non-boxers…”

Despite his sadness of not being able to face Fury in Tampa, Fury says he will be raring to go in March 2022 when he hopes the bout will be rescheduled.
