UFC star Paddy Pimblett accepts Jake Paul’s challenge – with a MILLION dollars on the line!
YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul has a challenge for Paddy Pimblett after the UFC star accused him of fixing his fights.
“He’s got unlimited funds and he hasn’t got to do anything else, he hasn’t got to go and do a job all he’s got to do is box,” Pimblett said on Pub Talk. “And he gets the best coaches in, the best nutritionists in, and stuff like that. Jake Paul is actually not that bad now, even though I think his fights are fixed.”
“I don’t think the Tyron Woodley knockout was fixed because when you get knocked out like that and you land face first, if you’re not unconscious you’re going (to put your arms out). You can’t help it. That’s a human reaction.”
“The Problem Child” Paul was quick to respond to the accusation. To prove that his fights aren’t fixed, the controversial boxing star is willing to put a million dollars on the line in a sparring match!
“Dear Paddy Pimblett, you claim my fights are rigged? Stop calling the GOAT Anderson Silva a criminal and come spar me,” Jake said on Twitter.
“You win, I give you $1 million. I win, you join the UFA (United Fighters Association).”

Pimblett’s set to take on Jared Gordon at UFC 282 in Las Vegas, making a sparring session unlikely until after December 10. Pimblett did however accept Paul’s challenge, and asked him to have the money ready for a sparring session in Las Vegas.
“Of course (I’m interested), but I’m under contract by the UFC and (Paul) said this knowing full well I’m fighting next week, know what I mean?
“Come to the PI next week,” Pimblett told TMZ. Come to the (UFC Performance Institute) next week and bring $1 million in a bag and I will spar with you.”
“I’m in the (Performance Institute) in Vegas on Thursday, I land on Thursday, so even though I’m low on calories and I’m only about 170, he likes picking on smaller people anyway. But if he wants to wait until after my fight until the Monday, because I’m still in Vegas till the Tuesday, but I’m about 185, 190 pounds, I’m game!”
