Jake Paul is openly dissatisfied with the UFC roster, but there is one opponent he would prefer to avoid.
Paul enjoys watching boxers like Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, and Jorge Masvidal. Paul has defeated former MMA champs Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley via knockout.
Paul was questioned if he would battle UFC middleweight king Israel Adesanya. Paul weighs 195 pounds. No, Paul said.

Jake Paul claimed on the show “The Timbo Sugar Show” of him, “He is definitely the only UFC athlete I would not fight.” He is big and a formidable striker. He is, in my estimation, one of the three greatest attackers in the history of the game. It could be argued that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has an excessive number of competitors (I would fight). I cannot think of anyone else with whom I would avoid a battle.
Paul, on the other hand, hopes that he and Diaz will soon engage in combat. Diaz’s contract will expire on September 10 against Khama Chimaev in the main event of UFC 279.
Paul informed them that it will occur within two years. “This is a major issue. According to him, since the UFC has confirmed his bout with Khamzat, it is all but official. “I against Nate will probably be more at 180, and then it’ll be like, ‘OK, Jake Paul beats Nate.'” After that, Conor will have no excuse to avoid me.
According to Most Valuable Promotions, the fight between Hasim Rahman Jr. and Paul was scheduled for Aug 6 at Madison Square Garden in Nyc, but it was postponed because Rahman insisted on fighting in a heavier weight class. Former YouTube sensation-turned-professional boxer most recently contested in December, when he stopped Woodley in the second round to take a 2-0 lead in their fight.
