Khabib is completely done with the idea of a Jake Paul fight, shutting it all down in an interview with the NELK Boys and joking he could smash the internet celeb in a “couple of minutes.”
“With me? Come on… I don’t think so. In MMA? You think he can fight with me?” the former UFC champ asked bluntly.
Not wanting to step out of retirement, he simply said Paul was “late” with his rise to fame.
“I’m finished,” he explained. “Of course, we can think about this. I watched his videos, he was sparring. He has a lot to learn.”
With his new MMA promotion off the ground, he’s willing to “give Paul a chance and sign him.” In fact, a contract may have already been sent.
