When Jake Paul Fought An MMA Fighter Inside Cage And Tapped Out

Jake Paul's last fight with an MMA fighter saw him knock out Ben Askren in the first round of their boxing bout.

But his first encounter with a martial artist did not go anywhere near as smoothly.


Paul has crossed paths with AJ Agazarm, Nate Diaz's teammate, on a few occasions.


When they sparred in the squared circle, Paul, now 3-0 professionally in boxing following his routine win over Askren, looked especially dominant and caught his opponent with some brutal combinations.


But back in 2017, the pair mixed it up inside the cage in an MMA bout at the UFC gym and the result was very different.

Agazarm, a black belt and world champion in brazilian jiu-jitsu, didn't really get out of first gear but showed his superior grappling and ground game.

There was a prank played by he and the referee where they led Paul to believe he had been disqualified due to an eye-poke but the fight was actually done and dusted in the second round for real after the YouTuber tapped to an armbar.

The full fight was posted on Paul's channel and garnered over 5 million views before it was then removed for reasons still unclear.


But the footage still exists after MMA Hot Takes posted it on their YouTube page.

Agazarm had an amateur MMA record of 8-0 and made his professional debut for Bellator in losing fashion in 2019.

He then won his next three fights before succumbing to a defeat at the hands of Chris Lencion at Bellator 243. In October of this year he was released by Bellator.


The above footage shows why Paul is mixing it up with MMA fighters inside the ring and not the cage because it's evident the outcome would be very different.
