UFC legend Michael Bisping has claimed he’d KO Jake Paul in under two rounds if he were to ever fight the YouTuber.

Bisping, 42, was on the shortlist to face the social media star turned boxer last year before fellow former UFC champ Tyron Woodley took the fight.

The Count has kept himself in tip-top shape since retiring from the sport in May 2018 and is confident he’d put a beating on the youngest Paul brother – despite only having one eye.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour, he said while laughing: “My body is good Ariel, don’t worry about me.

“I’m coming back, Jake Paul is gonna f***ing get it!

“If he wants to, I would. Stick me on an Indian reservation, two rounds. Boom, out cold!”

Paul, 25, scored a viral KO of former UFC welterweight champ Woodley in his last outing last December.

But Bisping was less than impressed by what he’s seen of the former Disney star.

When pressed on his prediction, Bisping replied: “Why wouldn’t I believe that?

“I think I can beat him, I don’t know about two rounds.

Bisping was offered $500,000 to lock horns with Paul but turned down the deal, countering with a $1million demand.

He told SunSport: “With Jake Paul, yeah I did get an offer of $500,000 to fight him.

“We countered back with a million, but I was never really entertaining it.

“I was like, ‘Alright, let’s have some fun, let’s see what they say.

“And you never know, if they had came back with a million or higher, maybe I would’ve gone and spanked a YouTuber.

“If there’s a million dollars in the table there, I’d be a fool not to pick it up.”

Despite claiming he’d flatten Paul, UFC Hall of Famer Bisping has no intention of competing again.

The commentator and podcaster said: “I’m not interested in that, I’m very happy, I’ve got so much going on in my retirement.

“I’m so bloody busy. But yeah, I’m very happy.”
