Kamaru Usman Thinks Jake Paul Has CONFIRMED UFC Fight With Him After Savage Callout

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman believes Jake Paul has confirmed he wants to step into the octagon to fight him - with a brutal social media callout.


The 24-year-old posted a photoshopped image of himself choking out Usman with the caption: "Hi I'm Jake Paul and you're watching Disney Channel."

It was seen the 'Nigerian Nightmare' reply with a chilling warning of: "Does this picture confirm that you @jakepaul are willing to get inside the @ufc octagon and do this to me or are you just posting for clout?"

Earlier this week saw Paul call out Usman for attending Disney World with his daughter and listed a 'timeline' of recent events.

He tweeted: "So let's get this straight:

"1. Usman calls me out to fight on TMZ sports interview.

"2. I quickly accept the challenge to fight and will give him biggest pay day of career ($10m+)

"3. Usman then backs out of fight because I'm 'a Disney kid'

"4. Usman visits Disney world."

Paul, meanwhile, defeated former MMA star Ben Askren in a lucrative boxing bout back in April.

'The Problem Child' did great business with Triller Fight Club and is keen to get back in the ring with more fighters.

He told ESPN per The Sun: "This all started with me having a list of people I wanted to fight.

"It started with a YouTuber and then it was a real athlete and then all of a sudden it was to fight an MMA athlete.

"Nate Diaz and I got into beef on Twitter and so the people on that list are mainly MMA fighters.

"It's whatever gets people interested and combining the two worlds... the biggest pay-per-view of all time was Floyd [Mayweather] vs Conor [McGregor], boxing vs MMA, so why not keep with that model?

"I believe I'm a better striker than 99.9 per cent of these MMA guys so when we're matching up from a kill and experience level it's even and it's who wants it more in the fight.

"If I'm going against these world champion boxers who have been doing it since they were six years old its an unfair advantage.

"I do want to fight boxers, there are boxers I'm going back and forth with about potential fights but the people I want to knock out are MMA fighters.

"[Tyron Woodley] would be a good opponent, Nate Diaz would be a good opponent, Conor McGregor would be a good opponent."
