Jorge Masvidal is currently one of the top UFC stars but is also one of the most outspoken and controversial ones to boot. Jake Paul also recently leaked a bad series of Jorge Masvidal texts.
The YouTuber turned professional boxer, Jake Paul faced off against the former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley on August 29 in a boxing match. The odds were in favor of Jake Paul even if Tyron Woodley is definitely the biggest opponent for Jake Paul so far. Michael Bisping just said on YouTube that Woodley made $8 million for the fight. Dave Chapelle also went after Jake Paul at the pay-per-view.
Jake Paul proved all of his doubters wrong as he was able to last 8 rounds against Tyron Woodley, who many believed would destroy The Problem Child in the boxing match. Of course, that did not happen as Jake Paul went on to win the match via split decision. This was met with a lot of outcries as fans believed the boxing match was rigged from the start.
Jake Paul also defeated Tyron Woodley on December 18th in their rematch, as he knocked him out during the 6th round with a clean right hand. A 17-year-old fan caused some commotion when he pushed Jorge Masvidal during the event. Masvidal tried to fight him and then the fan started screaming, “I’m 17! Please, I’m 17!” Masvidal’s manager Ibrahim Kawa later provided some context about the incident on Twitter.
“Kid decides to push Masvidal while Jorge was facing the ring. Quickly realizes that’s a big no no when Masvidal turns around and starts screaming ‘I’m 17, please I’m 17’ with his hands up. Kids I tell you smh”
