Jake Paul has called out Conor McGregor and a number of other UFC fighters following his spectacular knockout win over Tyron Woodley.
Paul, 24, brutally knocked out former UFC champion Woodley, 39, in round six of their rematch in Tampa, Florida on Saturday night to extend his record in professional boxing to 5-0.
Current UFC fighters Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal had front row seats for the event and were both challenged by Paul immediately after the fight.

“Y'all are some b****es for leaving this arena. I know you don't want that s***. I'll take out both of y'all next,” said Youtuber-turned-boxer Paul.
“Get out of your contracts with daddy Dana (White). I'mma f*** them up too.”
In his post-fight news conference, Paul turned his attention to former two-weight UFC champion McGregor and current welterweight king Kamaru Usman.
When asked if he had a message for UFC president White, Paul said: "I just knocked out a five-time UFC champion and embarrassed your whole company.
"Please, please let me get Kamaru Usman, let me get Diaz, let me get Masvidal, let me get McGregor because I'm going to embarrass them too.”
Paul was originally scheduled to fight Tommy Fury instead of Woodley but the former Love Island contestant was forced to pull out of the bout due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.
Speaking earlier this month, Fury said he was hopeful the fight could be rearranged for 2022.
"I can't express how disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the new year,” said Fury.

“I want this fight to happen more than anything. I'm now regretfully putting my focus on recovery and a further reschedule date."
Meanwhile, Masvidal has suggested he would be willing to fight Paul if given the opportunity.
Speaking ahead of Saturday's event, Masvidal said: “Who the f*** is this Paul kid?
"He thinks we're friends, because I gave him some advice in the Ben Askren fight.
“Get the f*** out of here, bro. I'll slap you and whoever the f*** you want, bro.”
