Jorge Masvidal Responds To Jake Paul's Fight Offer, He's Serious About Making It Happen

Jorge Masvidal is deadly serious about fighting Jake Paul.

UFC fan favourite Masvidal has now responded to the YouTuber's latest offer for a boxing match, setting out a list of his own terms and conditions.

Ever since Paul burst (I know, can't believe we're using that word) onto the boxing scene, he hasn't shied away from calling out every man under the sun.

From fellow social media stars to boxers and mixed martial artists, Paul has been gunning for fights against literally everyone.

But despite training alongside Masvidal ahead of his bout against Ben Askren, Paul now wants to take on the man who boasts the quickest knockout in UFC history.

According to boxing reporter Michael Benson, Paul publicly offered Masvidal $5million plus a percentage of the pay-per-view sales to fight him.

"Let's make it happen," he said on his brother's IMPAULSIVE podcast.

"That's the most you'll ever have gotten paid. Daddy Dana just has to let you out of your contract. You work for the UFC, you're a b***h."

Masvidal has now responded - and surprise surprise, he ain't backing down from the challenge.

He tweeted: "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."

Well, you could say that the ball is now firmly in Jake Paul's court.

But seeing as though he's currently making truck loads of cash by fighting retired athletes and fellow YouTubers, it's hard to imagine that Paul will give that up easily just to get knocked spark out by one of the UFC's best strikers - not matter how hefty the pay cheque is.
