✔ Jake hints at a fight against superstar Conor McGregor!

Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has managed to sign several big names and skilled fighters in his new MMA organization Eagle FC (EFC). Names such as Rashad Evans, Kevin Lee and Diego Sanchez have all signed contracts for EFC. Now, however, Khabib seems to be aiming for a far bigger name, namely celebrity boxer and Youtuber Jake Paul.

Jake has previously expressed an interest in competing in MMA, and has also been willing to join the UFC under the right conditions. On social media, he has recently hinted at a fight against Conor McGregor in the middleweight division.

. @danawhite when I make my MMA debut, I could cut 20 pounds & do it at Welterweight / 170 pounds. That’s what all UFC fighters do and many have destroyed their bodies & minds doing it. But I’m gonna do it at Middleweight (185). Health first. PS Conor walking around at 190

However, White has not been particularly excited on the idea of a UFC debut for Jake. To some extent because he ended up in conflict with the celebrity boxer regarding fighter salary. Khabib therefore took the opportunity to send his own offer to the star.

“the doors of @EagleFightClub always open for you and your team.” Wrote Khabib on twitter.

Jake gave a quick answer to the lightweight legend, in both Russian and English!

“deal. only if I fight you first.” Wrote Jake Paul

To say Jake would have any chance against Khabib in MMA is perhaps less realistic, but a debut in MMA can be the next successful step for the star.

Jake Paul has good background in wrestling, a good base in boxing and has also started training kicks before a possible MMA fight. He also has proper power in his hands, as knocking out Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren showed. All of this can result in a win for the celebrity boxer ahead of a match in EFC!
