Jake Paul ‘toying around’ with an MMA switch in next fight as YouTube star reveals negotiations with opponents ongoing

JAKE PAUL is ‘toying around’ with an MMA switch for his next fight and revealed negotiations with opponents are ongoing.

The YouTuber-turned prizefighting star recently returned to the gym to begin training for his next fight.

And it did not take long for Paul, 25, to announce he will return to the ring in just five months’ time.

The American has been calling out Conor McGregor, 33, to a UFC fight in what would be a shock switch in sport.

And he has even claimed the wheels are in motion to make his MMA debut upon his return this summer.

He told TMZ Sports: “We’re in talks with a couple of different people. Toying around with the idea of going into MMA for the next fight.

“So, we’re in negotiations, Nakisa my manager, Most Valuable Promotions, we’re talking to a bunch of different people and seeing who makes the most sense.”

Paul has feuded with UFC president Dana White in the past, meaning rival MMA promotions like Bellator and PFL are alternative options.

He added: “We’re definitely talking to both of those entities and other MMA entities as well to see where it makes the most sense.

“Working on some pretty exciting things there but there’s a long list of people that I want to fight, it just depends on who’s ready and who can sell the most amount of pay-per-views.

“Because as of yet, I haven’t really fought someone with as big a name as me.

“I’ve really done all of the promotion so I want to fight someone with as big a name as me and that’s what we’re looking to do.”

Paul was last in the ring in December when he knocked out Tyron Woodley, 39, in their late-notice rematch.

Woodley had been beaten on points four months earlier but replaced Tommy Fury, 22, who pulled out injured.

Paul added to KOs over online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.
