Jorge Masvidal warns he 'will gladly break Jake Paul's face'

Jorge Masvidal demands $20m plus pay-per-view cash from Jake Paul and suggests ‘one fight deal in the UFC to BOX IN THE CAGE’ if Dana White refuses to let him out of his contract

  • Jake Paul knocked out former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in their rematch
  • He called out Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, who are both under contract  
  • Paul then publicly offered $5million to Masvidal to face him in boxing match 
  • Masvidal argued that the UFC ‘is not going to let him go for chump change’

Jorge Masvidal has demanded $20million from Jake Paul after the YouTuber-turned-boxer offered him $5million to meet him in the boxing ring. 

Paul delivered a devastating knockout in his rematch with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley at the weekend before calling out both Masvidal and Nate Diaz. 

At the time, Masvidal said: ‘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.’

Jorge Masvidal laid out his terms for fighting Jake Paul if the UFC allow him to do it 

Paul severely knocked out Tyron Woodley in their rematch with a heavy right hand 

Paul responded: ‘I have an offer for you right now, $5 million guarantee, plus percentage of pay-per-views.

‘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 then took to Twitter to clear things up, saying the UFC are unlikely to let him out of his contract and that if Paul is serious, he can sign a temporary deal with the MMA organisation. 

He wrote: ‘1. The UFC isn’t gonna let me go for chump change. 

‘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.’

Given Paul’s constant criticism of the UFC and highlighting of what he perceives to be low fighter pay, it seems unlikely that president Dana White would go out of his way to accommodate him. 

Masvidal was knocked out by Kamaru Usman (right) in his last fight back in April 

Masvidal is one of the organisation’s biggest stars and Nate Diaz also has one fight left on his contract. 

‘Gamebred’ was due to face Leon Edwards recently but had to pull out after suffering an injury in training camp.  

Paul has been intelligent in using the profile of UFC fighters to elevate his own stock in the boxing ring and remains undefeated. His clash with Tommy Fury was shelved after Tyson’s younger brother pulled out with injury so that is another fight that could be put back on the table.
