UFC legend Michael Bisping blasted an ’embarrassing’ video of Ryan Garcia confronting YouTuber Jake Paul with a fight contract.
The pair – who had struck up a friendship and even filmed videos together – traded words on Twitter.
It came after Garcia, 22, responded to shock news Logan Paul, 25, could box Floyd Mayweather, 43, in an exhibition this year.
He tweeted: “If Mayweather can fight Logan Paul then I’m fighting Jake Paul.”
Paul, 23, responded: “It’s a little too early for your first loss peewee.”
Footage then emerged of Garcia turning up to Paul’s Los Angeles mansion with what he claimed was a homemade contract for the two to fight.
The staged stunt was slammed by former UFC champion Bisping, who tweeted: “Embarrassing.”
But WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring found the lighter side of the video.
Herring responded: “When Ryan said, “I took a long time making that…” I knew it wasn’t legit.”
Garcia is due to face Luke Campbell, 32, for the ‘interim’ WBC lightweight title, with negotiations still on going.
Paul – who won his boxing debut against internet rival ‘AnEsonGib in January – is preparing for his second fight.
He faces ex-NBA star Nate Robinson on November 28, featuring on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s boxing comeback.
Garcia had been helping the American social media star prepare for the fight.
They shot and uploaded vlogs together, with Paul even pranking the unbeaten boxer by pretending their ‘body shot challenge’ left him with a broken rib.
