Jake Paul Ruthlessly Mocks Jorge 'Masvidoll' After Colby Covington Defeat, Reveals Who UFC Star Should Fight Next

​Jake Paul has mocked Jorge Masvidal following his crushing defeat to Colby Covington and put forward a case for him to fight Conor McGregor next in a UFC super-fight. 

Masvidal succumbed to Covington's superior wrestling as he suffered a unanimous decision defeat at UFC 272. 

The UFC superstar had a chance to put Covington away when he rocked him in the fourth round. 

But he failed to capitalise, with 'Chaos' grinding out the victory in Las Vegas. 

Masvidal, though, pocketed a huge purse having secured pay-per-view points, though Paul isn't buying that 'Gamebred' is rich. 

He tweeted: "First of all Masvidal you ain’t rich."

In another tweet, 'The Problem Child' brought up McGregor and suggested the promotion match them up together, calling it a 50/50 fight. 

He also taunted the Irishman, saying he and Masvidal both have weak chins. 

Paul added: "We already know Conor can’t finish Diaz. Right fight to make is Masvidoll vs Macgregor. 50/50 fight, ends in KO. Both can throw and both have weak chins."​

Masvidal has now lost his last three Octagon outings, with UFC president Dana White unsure what's next for him. 

"I don’t know, that’s a good question," he said. "We knew tonight, whoever lost, 'What would be next?' and 'Where would they go?' And I don’t know, sitting right here, right now, I don’t know. On either one of them, even Colby, who won."

On Covington, who returned to the win column following his championship defeat to Kamaru Usman, White added: "The thing is too is that after a while no matter how much you hate him, you’ve at least got to respect him.

"The guy keeps winning fights and he’s a tough dude.

"I don’t know if I’ve had any bad words to say about him. I said he’s an a******. He’s an a******. Anybody disagree with that? He would probably even agree with that. No, I respect the kid."
