UFC on ESPN: Hall vs. Strickland fight card
READ MORE : Uriah Hall says he would kill Jake Paul in a fight
UFC middleweight fighter Uriah Hall has said that he can fight Celebrity boxer Jake Paul with one hand and might even kill him if they fight.
Following a first-round knockout of former ONE and Bellator champion Ben Askren, Jake Paul has begun to solicit for his next boxing match and several fighters have already volunteered their services including Tyron Woodley and B.J. Penn.
While Paul has certainly looked impressive during his first three wins, which all ended by knockout, he still hasn’t faced anybody with a boxing resume or even an MMA fighter with a striking background.
Uriah Hall, who competes this weekend at UFC 261, won’t beat Paul for taking the path of least resistance when it comes to his fight career, especially considering the money he’s banking after the recent Triller Fight Club card sold over 1 million pay-per-views.
Uriah Hall says Jake Paul Sucks
Hall is not happy with how the sports have become unfair because guys like Jake Paul can walk into combat sports and make millions while there are fighters who have been scratching and clawing for an opportunity their entire lives and they still earn scraps.
“Here’s what I think — at the end of the day it’s a great business move but it’s just a disappointment, too,” Hall explained during UFC 261 media day. “You know some people are selling out, I get it. I remember watching that or even hearing about it going I’m working my ass off, literally dying — this motherf*cker comes out there, says a couple [things] and I know what he’s doing. Let’s be honest, the guy sucks. He sucks. He sucks and looks who he’s picking. So I get it.
“From a business standpoint, a YouTube person is going out there and people are feeding off that. You have people that hate him and you have people that love him, you’ve still got to watch him. It’s genius but at the same time, it humiliates what I call real athletes that put in the time. I know guys behind me not even making that much. I know guys out there that aren’t making as much as the ring card girls.”
When asked what would happen if he was asked by Paul to serve as his next opponent, Hall didn’t hesitate to answer.
“I say I’m going to knock you the f*ck out and thank you for the opportunity,” Hall said. “Cause we all know I would kill him. I would tell you, bro, I will beat you with one hand. You don’t deserve my right hand. I’ll do it for free. That’s how confident I am.”
