Jorge Masvidal Ridicules Jake Paul Over Poor PPV Numbers

Jorge Masvidal mocked Jake Paul for his poor pay-per-view numbers from his most recent fight against Tyron Woodley, and never wants to be associated with YouTube star again.

Paul continued his 100 per cent record as a professional boxer with a sixth-round knockout of Woodley, but it's fair to say that the fight didn't draw in as many viewers as he would've liked.

The rematch with Woodley only drew in 65,000 PPV buys - a number which was deemed to be too small for Masvidal.

He said on Twitter: "B**** boy can't afford the big boys. "Never again do I want to hear my name associated with the fake.

"3 0 5 [Masvidal's Miami area code] day is coming."

But the Mirror reports that the number of 65,000 is a tad misleading, with it coming from DAZN's Steven Muehlhausen. It also doesn't include the figures from digital buys, which would bump up the total considerably when factoring in Paul's huge presence on social media.

Masvidal seemingly has his sights elsewhere, and is set to return to the Octagon in the New Year, with Colby Covington and Leon Edwards touted as opponents.

The UFC welterweight fighter is not the only man to ridicule his low PPV figures, with Connor McGregor's training partner Dillon Danis also taking a turn to have a pop at the 24-year-old.


He photoshopped a photo of Paul pointing to a mirror with a note attached to it, which said: "I, Jake Paul, will sell only 65k PPV sales."
