Jake Paul Responds to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s MMA Fight Offer

Jake Paul has accepted Khabib Nurmagomedov’s offer.

But Paul has only one condition for the retired MMA star.

Khabib told Jake Paul that the doors of his Eagle Fight Club promotion are “always open” to Jake and his team. Jake Paul agreed that he would join the MMA and fight with one caveat.

“That’s a deal, but only if I fight you first,” Jake said.

Last week, UFC president Dana White played down his beef with the YouTuber, saying “never say never” to Paul stepping into the ring.

Jake responded:

“When I make my MMA debut, I could cut 20 pounds and do it at welterweight,” he said, which would bring him down to 170 pounds. “That’s what all UFC fighters do, and many have destroyed their bodies and minds doing it.”

Jake Paul also really wants to fight Conor McGregor: “I’m taking this seriously. There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out,” he said.

If Jake Paul thinks MMA will be a walk in the park,  he has another thing coming.

The guy will get destroyed in the cage.
