UFC Star Challenges Jake Paul To 'Deserted Island Death Match' In Disturbing Call Out

​Jake Paul has been challenged to a 'deserted island' fight to the death following his back-and-forth exchange with Jorge Masvidal

He wasted no time in responding, issuing his own challenge inside the famed Octagon as he laid down the terms in a series of tweets. 

But, the chances of Paul vs. Masvidal actually taking place are extremely slim, with Sean Strickland​ saying he'd accept the original offer of $5 million.

The UFC middleweight contender tweeted Paul and proposed a bout in international waters and a fight to the death on YouTube.

On Twitter, he wrote: "@jakepaul you offer me 5 MILLION to fight you, fuck we can fly to a deserted island in international water and fight to the death on YouTube for that kind of money... bareknuckle, gloves, knives, clubs.... lol! Let's fucking go.. @GamebredFighter."

In another tweet, he made reference to Jake's older brother, Logan: "I would fight them both for 5 mil and win."​

Strickland added:​ "We don't make even close to 5 mil.. I'm not hating I love the UFC I'm a white trasher mother fucker the UFC has gave me a life... I still can't wrap my head around not being a poor loser... but for 5 million... there isnt much I wouldn't do. Hurting him would be mild lol..."​

Considering the nature of the call-out, we doubt he'll be getting a response from the YouTuber-turned-boxer. 

Strickland, though, is making a name for himself in the world of MMA having won five consecutive fights in the UFC. 

Since losing to Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, he's defeated Nordine Taleb, Jack Marshman, Brendan Allen, Krzysztof Jotko​ and Uriah Hall.

He returns to action next year when he takes on top contender Jack Hermansson at UFC Fight Night 201.
