Jake Paul is a true definition of a man with “no chill”. He’s been calling out everyone, left and right, including the GOAT… Khabib Nurmagomedov.
He did it when Khabib invited him to fight under Eagle FC (Khabib’s MMA organization):
по рукам. только если я буду драться с тобой первым.
deal. only if I fight you first. https://t.co/4oRAZq8Ez3

And Khabib’s response to the call-out? It was precisely as you’d imagine it to be. As a recent guest at the “Full Send Podcast”, he essentially laughed off Jake’s offer:
[A fight] with me? Come on. Jake Paul. I don’t think so. In MMA, [he would last] a couple minutes.
He’s also added that Jake is a bit “late to the party”:
He’s late a little bit cause I am finished.
Nevertheless, Nurmagomedov says that he watched Jake Paul’s performances and that he is impressed with his boxing skills, though his MMA isn’t all that good. He also emphasized that he’d give him a chance to fight under Eagle FC:
I watch his sparring or some video he was doing MMA with someone. He has to learn a lot.
On boxing, he knows how to punch. He’s not bad in the boxing game. Anybody can box. But you can never wrestle, this is completely different.
If he wants to fight in MMA — because he never fights in MMA — he doesn’t have experience but we can give him a chance. I think if he wants, we can give him a chance. We can sign him. We can pay him. We’ll see.
