Jake Paul Claims He Earns More Than Every UFC Fighter Combined

Jake Paul Claims He Earns More Than Every UFC Fighter Combined

That's a big statement.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul has sensationally claimed he earns more than every "silly motherf***er" in the UFC combined, including Conor McGregor, who topped Forbes' list for the highest paid athletes in 2021.

The 24-year-old American, who began his journey into professional boxing last year, currently has a record of 5-0-0 following wins against Ali Eson Gib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

He managed to secure his second victory over Woodley on Saturday night when he dropped the former UFC champion in round six with a clubbing right hand.

Paul, a former wrestler throughout his high school years, is open to bouts against some of the biggest names in the fight game. In fact, 'The Problem Child' called out UFC stars Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal following his victory over Woodley.

He has called out numerous names in the MMA world, including UFC president Dana White and former champion Conor McGregor - and now he has claimed he earns more than every UFC fighter combined.

"I make more than every UFC fighter f***ing combined, including Conor." he said on Logan Paul's IMPAULSIVE podcast.

"Y'all work for f***ing Dana, y'all work for WME, Endeavor, that's who you work for.

"I make more than all of you silly motherf***ers. Why would I go into the UFC? Sign a contract and give away my f***ing rights and s***.

"I own my content, I own my platform, I own everything. They don't own s***, they are literally employees.

"I'm a f***ing CEO and every UFC fighter is an employee. Get that straight. I'm not coming over there and doing s*** with y'all."

You can watch Paul make those comments below.

In the past, Paul has suggested it is "very possible" that he surpasses Floyd Mayweather as the richest fighter ever.

"I do think I can hit the $1billion prizefighter mark, easily." he told Sun Sport.

"All I've got to do is keep on winning - and I will keep on winning - and we'll see.

"I think it's very possible and that's why I say there is no limit to where this can go. I have the ace up my sleeve. The ace up my sleeve is that I can actually fight."

Paul has also claimed he earned an eight-figure profit from his first fight against Tyron Woodley.

“The money is great, the business is great, it is,” Paul told The Daily Mail. “I work blood, sweat, and tears in the gym, but this is a product of working day in and day out since I was 17 years old."
