After Jake implied that his switch from boxing to MMA was actually happening, he quickly got an invite from Khabib who stated that the doors of his promotion are “always open” to Jake.
Jake quickly responded to that, suggesting they’d have a deal, but he wanted a condition of his own. “That’s a deal, but only if I fight you first,” Jake said.
Many fans were quick to point out that if the two ever squared off inside the Octagon, it probably wouldn’t last all that long, or be pretty for Jake.
The difference in experience aside, Khabib also retired from MMA in mid-2021 and hasn’t come close to making a return in that time.
