Jake Paul has hinted at making UFC debut at middleweight against Conor McGregor

It looks like Jake Paul will not stop until he steps inside the Octagon as an MMA fighter. As farfetched as it might sound, Paul has constantly been hinting at starting an MMA career soon.

The YouTuber-turned-professional boxer currently has a 5-0 record in his boxing career. He has KO wins over notable MMA stars Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren.

Now that he is more confident than ever, Paul recently expressed his desire to take up MMA someday. He has also been going back and forth with UFC President Dana White about joining the UFC.

More recently, Paul took to Twitter stating that he would fight at middleweight instead of cutting weight and fighting at welterweight. He also posted a recent picture of a beefed-up McGregor, hinting at a possible fight with the Irishman at middleweight.

Here is what ‘The Problem Child’ had to say:

“. @danawhite when I make my MMA debut, I could cut 20 pounds & do it at Welterweight / 170 pounds. That’s what all UFC fighters do and many have destroyed their bodies & minds doing it. But I’m gonna do it at Middleweight (185). Health first. PS Conor walking around at 190.”
