Jake Paul Responds To Dana White's Amanda Nunes Threat

Jake Paul has responded to Dana White, after the UFC president said he wanted to let Amanda Nunes fight the YouTuber rather than Conor McGregor.

YouTuber Paul is hoping to boost his profile, bank balance and boxing record by taking on McGregor in a fight and is relentless in his pursuit of the Irishman on social media.

So far the Notorious has stayed quiet, very unlike him, as he prepares for his return to action in the octagon against Dustin Poirier next month.

However with the Irishman mute, for now, UFC president White has responded to the relentless call outs of his biggest star, claiming instead he wants to watch two weight women's champion Nunes 'knock Paul's ass out.'

Now the 2-0 boxer has responded to White claiming he doesn't understand the 51-year-old's logic, claimed the 'company isn't doing well' and said the only bigger fight is if Khabib Nurmagomedov comes out of retirement.

Nunes, who is considered the greatest female UFC star of all time, is certainly into the idea of fighting the 23-year-old, having simply replied 'I'm in' on Twitter.

So far Paul's two professional wins have come against another YouTuber and a former basketball player, whilst he also has an amateur win against KSI's brother, but he really wants to fight McGregor next.

On Sunday night he posed with a giant cheque of $50 millions and claimed he had proof that he could put the funds up for the fight, whilst smoking a cigare and posing with an Irish flag.

Paul followed that up by throwing water balloons at McGregor's teammate Dillon Danis, the man Khabib attacked when jumping out of the octagon following his win over the Notorious in 2018.

The Irishman is obviously hoping that he can beat Poirier at UFC 257 and will likely then turn his attention to Khabib or whoever it is he might face for the lightweight title.

His rival retired after beating Justin Gaethje in October and has been very certain about staying retired, though White feels the Russian will return to action.

The rematch is the fight that would make the most money out of all the current active UFC fighters but it's not like McGregor hasn't switched sports to boxing before for a big pay day.

Paul may regret it when the Notorious does eventually respond.
