Jake Paul’s Next Move: From Boxing to MMA?

Jake Paul, the YouTube star-turned pro boxer, is considering a move to MMA after his recent victory over Nate Diaz. Find out who Paul wants to face next and his thoughts on Conor McGregor.

Jake Paul, the YouTube star-turned pro boxer, continues to make waves in the combat sports world. After defeating Nate Diaz in a 10-round boxing match, Paul is now considering his options for the future. Retirement is off the table, and Paul is ready to take his combat career to the next level.

One option on the table for Paul is a move to MMA. He recently signed a deal with the Professional Fighters League (PFL), opening up the possibility of competing in mixed martial arts. While Paul has shown interest in MMA, there is one fighter he has no desire to face: Conor McGregor.

During the post-fight press conference, Paul dismissed any potential fight with McGregor, stating, ‘I don’t care about him. He needs to go to rehab.’ Instead, Paul has his sights set on a different opponent in the MMA world – Nate Diaz. Paul wants to see Diaz in the octagon, testing his skills against a professional MMA fighter.

In addition to Diaz, Paul is also interested in facing more professional boxers, including the likes of Canelo Alvarez. However, a fight with Alvarez may be a long shot, as the current Super Middleweight champion has shown no interest in entertaining the idea.

Meanwhile, McGregor’s future in the combat sports world remains uncertain. After a coaching stint on The Ultimate Fighter, McGregor was set to face Michael Chandler, but the fight appears to be off the table. Instead, McGregor has turned his attention to Justin Gaethje, the current ‘BMF’ title holder.

It’s clear that Paul’s career is on the rise, and he is eager to continue making a name for himself in the combat sports world. Whether it’s in the boxing ring or the MMA octagon, Paul is ready for whatever challenges come his way.
