UFC star Jorge Masvidal recently took a jibe at YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer Jake Paul in response to the latest pay-per-view report regarding the recent Paul vs. Woodley rematch. Masvidal mocked Paul for selling just 65k pay-per-views in his rematch against ‘T-Wood’ that took place on December 18th. Joe Rogan was stunned by rigged video clip of Jake Paul.

‘Gamebred’ has also suggested that he never wants to hear his name associated with a potential fight against the YouTube sensation. Masvidal posted a tweet that read as follows:
“B**ch boy can’t afford the big boys Never again do I want to hear my name associated with the fake. 3 0 5 day is coming #supernecessary”

The rematch between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley took place on December 18th and witnessed Paul win via sixth-round KO. The event was initially scheduled to be headlined by Paul and Tommy Fury. However, Fury pulled out due to health issues and was replaced by Woodley on short notice. As reported by boxing insider Steven Muehlhausen, the Paul-Woodley rematch garnered less than 65,000 buys on cable and satellite pay-per-view. Muehlhausen added, however, that the fight’s digital streaming numbers are yet to be released and “could be through the roof.”
Despite a drop in pay-per-view numbers in his latest fight, several combat sports personalities believe ‘The Problem Child’ is likely to headline bigger events in the future. In a recent edition of The Fighter & The Kid podcast, former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub addressed Jake Paul’s boxing future. Schaub believes Paul will box UFC megastars such as Nate Diaz and former UFC Double Champion Conor McGregor.
