Jake Paul laid down a $10 million challenge to both Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal.

On June 1, ‘Gamebred’ will return to action for a long-awaited rematch with the ‘Stockton Samurai’ in the squared circle. No matter who comes out on top, ‘The Problem Child’ wants the winner — so long as it takes place in a cage rather than a ring.

During a recent episode of his BS w/ Jake Paul podcast, the YouTuber-turned-boxer once again offered an eight-figure deal to whichever would be willing to slap on the four-ounce gloves and meet him in an MMA fight. 

“I’m being so serious when I say that I want to fight them in MMA,” Paul said. “Either Masvidal or Diaz, in the PFL, $10 million dollar offer for either one of those guys. Again, they will literally hide behind the fact … Masvidal: ‘You can’t even box. What the f*ck are you going to do coming over to MMA, bro? I’m from Miami, Florida, bro! F*ck you, don’t disrespect me.’

“F*cking bird brain, that’s what he hides behind. Same with Paddy (Pimblett), Sean Strickland, all of these guys hide behind these crazy things, but still none of them have shown up to the table to talk any business about anything to make anything actually happen for a real fight, a real spar, whatever it is. So the offer still stands there. I want either one of those guys in MMA.”

Jake Paul Will First Have to Contend with One of the Greatest Heavyweights of All Time

Before Jake Paul can turn his attention toward a mixed martial arts showdown with Nate Diaz or Jorge Masvidal, ‘The Problem Child’ will have to deal with former unified heavyweight boxing world champion ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson. The two talents from two very different generations are scheduled to step inside the ring for a scrap inside the 80,000-seat AT&T Stadium on Saturday, July 20.

“Obviously, I have Mike, but I would just do it after that,” Paul added. “I would do like a six-month camp.”

Paul’s clash with ‘Kid Dynamite’ is expected to be one of the most watched fights of all time — largely due to the bout airing on Netflix to its 260 million+ subscribers around the world at no extra charge.
