Jake Paul is back in the headlines following his huge knockout win over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
Currently holding a professional boxing record of 5-0 to his name, Jake Paul went out on the UFC roster during his appearance on his brother Logan Paul’s podcast and said that he makes more money than every UFC fighter.
“I make more than every UFC fighter f****** combined, including Conor. Y’all work for f****** Dana, y’all work for WME, Endeavor, that’s who you work for. I make more than all of you silly motherf******. Why would I go into the UFC? Sign a contract and give away my f****** rights and s***. I own my content, I own my platform, I own everything. They don’t own s***, they are literally employees. I’m a f****** CEO and every UFC fighter is an employee. Get that straight. I’m not coming over there and doing s*** with y’all,” Jake Paul said (h/t TalkSport).
Interestingly, the claim from Jake Paul comes just months after Conor McGregor claimed the top spot in the highest-paid athletes list from Forbes. Conor was ahead of football superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the list thanks to his endeavors both inside the cage and outside it.
Jake Paul has also expressed his interest in trying out MMA and recently said that he is going to train with Khabib Nurmagomedov and the team at American Kickboxing Academy.
