JAKE PAUL SHUTS DOWN VITOR BELFORT’S $30M FIGHT CHALLENGE: “THAT DOESN’T EXCITE ME”

WHAT HAPPENED?

Jake Paul shut down former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort’s $30 million fight challenge.

He told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour that he’s not interested in making it happen, and he explained why.

First, Jake took a swipe at Belfort, claiming his fight against boxing legend Evander Holyfield was a mockery of the sport.

He beat up an old man, he disrespected the sport of boxing in my opinion. Holyfield is a legend, but he shouldn’t be fighting somebody that’s in their early 40s. It was just sad to see.

Vitor is not that big of a name. He just isn’t. He’s not even as big of a name as Tyron Woodley, he’s older, and he’s on steroids. That doesn’t really excite me. It’s not as big of a fight as the ten other people calling me out.

Nothing has been locked in yet. However, he’s clearly drawing lots of attention from fighters.
