The UFC fighters are rallying behind Jake Paul. After the Heat game on Wednesday night, Floyd Mayweather and a group of guys accosted the Problem Child before JP booked it out of the area.

After the Heat-Cavs game in south Florida, Mayweather rolled up on Paul, who seemed to be accompanied at the time by a lone security guard.

After exchanging a few words, Jake quickly left the area before any fists could be raised.

Since Paul pulled the hat off the 50-0 boxer's head during a press conference promoting his brother Logan's fight with TBE in May 2021, Floyd and Jake have, of course, been at each other's throats.

"So I'm leaving the Miami Heat game and Floyd Mayweather and 50 dudes pull up out of nowhere, out of like some side alley, waiting for me outside the stadium, and they're like, 'So what's up? what's all that talk now? I'm like first of all, what did I say to you Floyd? I just took your hat and you're still mad about it? Come on, bro. And then 50 dudes literally start surrounding me to jump me, and I'm out that bitch, ok?,” Jake noted on his Instagram page.

"You wanna run it one on one, no problem. But I'm not dumb. Okay? I'm tough, I don't need to prove my toughness., but I'm not f**king dumb. I'm not gonna sit there and try to fight 50 dudes,” Jake wrote.

Meanwhile, Floyd’s team has given a statement to TMZ which reads the following.

“Jake crossed the line. This wasn’t about grabbing a hat. This was about Jake’s comments to Floyd about Floyd’s deceased family member and other below-the-belt inappropriate behavior,” TMZ reported.

Meanwhile, a string of UFC fighters have come out in support of Jake.

“Shiiiid my ass would’ve ran too, if 5+ ppl trying to hop me. What sensible 5’7” person gonna stay there trying to be Batman,” Aljamain Sterling noted on Twitter.

“People laughing like the wouldn’t have ran from 15 dudes …that’s Miami colby got jumped by one guy there and has been running ever since,” Belal Muhammad wrote on Twitter.
