Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping is the latest addition to the long list of YouTube sensation Jake Paul’s callouts.
Paul improved to 2-0 as a professional boxer in November, when he beat NBA star Nate Robinson via TKO in the second round. The Cleveland native, despite being relatively inexperienced in combat sports, has previously called out Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal, and Ben Askren.
The 23 year old has also engaged in Twitter feuds with former two division UFC champion Henry Cejudo, Nate Diaz, and Bellator prospect Dillon Danis, but he is not willing to stop with his callouts anytime soon.
“Stop Playing Games”
Speaking on his Believe You Me podcast (as transcribed by BJPenn.com), Bisping revealed that his team has also been contacted by Paul for a boxing bout, and he is up for the challenge.
“Jake Paul, if you want to f***ing go, Logan Paul, if you want to go, then I guess you have to put your hands in your pockets and man up,” Bisping said. “Because you’re talking s***, you’re contacting my manager saying that you want to fight. Well, guess what, buddy? I’m here. I’m going nowhere. You want to fight someone? You want to test yourself? Hey, I’m 0-0 as a boxer. You’re saying you’re 1-0, you’re 2-0, I’m 0-0.
“At the end of the day, if you want to do this, stop playing games. You want to do it? I’ll do it. I’m here. No problem. Okay? I’m almost 42-years old, I’m a former world champion and I will take you to school, my friend. And I’ll guarantee you this. You won’t get out of three rounds. That’s an absolute fact. You won’t get out of one round but we’ll say three just to give you that little insurance blanket. If this is a real offer, let me know and we’ll do it. 100 percent. Logan Paul or Jake Paul, or both.”
Bisping officially announced his retirement from MMA in 2018, and hasn’t fought since his first-round KO loss to Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Shanghai in 2017.
