Jake Paul’s grand plans are turning out to be a little more difficult than he thought. Following his win over Anderson Silva in their boxing match last October, Paul and “The Spider” agreed to work together to create a fighter’s association for MMA.
The Grand Plans
For Paul, the idea was to unionize fighters to put them in a better position to bargain for things like health insurance and better pay. Silva’s involvement would help bring other fighters into the fold. However, Paul revealed that there is still a lot of work to do behind the scenes to make this vision a reality.
Paul and Silva are not the first people to attempt to create a fighter’s association. Several past efforts, such as the Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association and the UFC athlete’s union, have struggled to gain traction. However, Paul remains optimistic and understands that this endeavor will take time.
A Marathon, Not a Sprint
Paul acknowledges that creating a fighter’s association is a long-term project that will likely span three to four years. The goal is to improve the treatment of fighters, including issues like health insurance and fair pay. Paul hopes that this initiative will bring about positive change in the combat sports world.
Paul’s Boxing Career Continues
While working on the fighter’s association, Jake Paul’s boxing career is ongoing. He is set to face Nate Diaz in a 10-round match on Aug. 5. Paul is excited to see how Diaz performs in the boxing ring and hopes to further promote the association if Diaz joins.
