But after months of calling out former UFC fighter Conor McGregor, Jake Paul has actually landed a fight with another UFC star, Ben Askren, who retired from the sport in 2019.
I promise I will knock out Ben Askren (Napolean Dynamite) inside the first round and add him to the meme collection.
Now he's back and is confident he can take on the 24-year-old YouTube star.
Its cute that Jake thinks he is a real fighter, Im gonna beat him up April 17 https://t.co/XcsJ8WhmR3— Funky (@Funky)1611674331.0
Paul has faced criticism on his boxing skills due to the fact he has never fought a professional fighter, but he is very confident he will be able to knock out the former UFC fighter.
"Some MMA guys think because they can throw punches they know how to box. I shocked the world when I knockout an NBA superstar athlete, but some people still complained that he's not a real fighter," said Paul, "So now I'm giving the people what they want by taking on a real fighter... After I add Ben to my knockout meme collection, what can anybody say?"
