Jake Paul names Israel Adesanya as the only UFC fighter he wouldn’t fight

Jake Paul who’s known for his usual vanity has surprisingly named a fighter who he wouldn’t want to fight. ‘The Problem Child’ has been on an incessant censure against the UFC top brass. He had even listed out names of fighters from the UFC roaster he would like to fight, including superstars like Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor.

Jake Paul was originally scheduled to fight Hasim Rahman Jr. on August 6, 2022 at Madison Square Garden, New York. However, the fight failed to materialize after Rahman failed to make weight.

Since then, Paul has been busy with his business ventures, and calling out for fights against the likes of Nate Diaz and Andrew Tate.

He recently spoke on ‘The Timbo Sugar Show’ podcast to Sean O’Malley about various topics, including fighters he would like to face. He also said that Israel Adesanya is the only fighter he wouldn’t want to face:

“He’s probably the only fighter in the UFC that I wouldn’t fight. He is tall as f**k, and bro, his striking – I mean, I think he’s arguably one of the best strikers, top three ever in the history of the sport. There are a lot of UFC fighters (I would fight). I think he is literally the only one who I wouldn’t fight.”

Jake Paul suggests Logan Paul vs Nick Diaz on the same card as him vs Nate Diaz

Jake Paul wants a fight against MMA superstar Nate Diaz as soon as he’s done with his current contract with the UFC. UFC president Dana White had stated that Diaz might not fight Paul based on his brief interaction with the Stockton slugger.

Regardless of the narratives, Paul has been pushing for that fight for quite some time now. He went on to suggest an interesting angle with the Logan brothers vs Diaz brothers fantasy match-up.

“Me vs. Nate will probably be at 180lbs. Then it’ll be Jake Paul beats Nate and it gets closer and closer to Conor not being able to duck me anymore. I could f**k them both Diaz brothers up or maybe Logan can take out Nick.”
