Jake Paul is open to fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov in an MMA Fight. The YouTube sensation revealed the same during his recent appearance on The MMA Hour and noted that Eagle Fighting Championship has not offered him any deals as of now.

Earlier, Khabib had noted that his promotion Eagle FC offered a contract to Jake Paul. Jake, however, ruled this out completely and added that he does not want to take the risk at the moment.

“Khabib [Nurmagomedov] said, ‘We offered him a deal’ – it’s not true,” Paul said. “They never offered me anything. Eagle FC has never even done an event. Not to hate on anything they’re doing but I would need more than what I make in boxing to risk going into MMA right now,” Jake Paul said (h/t MMA Fighting).

He further went on to add that he is indeed open to an MMA fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov considering the magnitude of the potential fight.

“I would fight Khabib in MMA if they wanted to make that offer. Cause that would be exciting. That would excite me, especially if I had more time to train. That would be a massive fight. Probably a million, 2 million pay-per-view buys and all I would have to do is work on my wrestling skills. Cause I could outstrike him standing up,” he said.

Jake Paul is currently going strong with his boxing career which saw him picking up wins against former UFC fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
