The fight between Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury caused a large number of reactions. On the one hand, there are many who are looking forward to a fight between a great boxer and a former UFC fighter. Jake Paul had particularly interesting comments.
This great Youtuber and boxer thinks Ngannou did the right thing, just like Fury. Jake can't understand those who criticize Ngannou and Fury for agreeing to this kind of thing. "A massive fight like this with global audiences and the two baddest men on the planet going at it is only good for everyone and everything,” Paul said.
“No one criticized Floyd when he basically came out of retirement just to fight Conor McGregor for hundreds of millions of dollars, but for some reason, they want to criticize Tyson Fury. I’m happy for [Ngannou], and I think he’s creating history by showing UFC fighters they can make so much more money by being in control of their own destiny.
Which is also what Nate Diaz is doing [against me next month]."
Jake Paul and UFC
Jake Paul has criticized the UFC many times so far for many reasons. It seems that his voice has spread and that more and more UFC fighters understand the situation they are in.
Jake recommends everyone join the PFL, considering that they will have more opportunities to progress. “This should be Nate Diaz’s biggest payday, and that’s for certain going to be Francis’ biggest payday.
Hopefully, more fighters follow suit, leave the UFC, come to the better league, which is PFL, and also be able to box. They’re MMA fighters, but they can also box. So, I think more fighters will follow in his footsteps, and that’s what we’re doing with the PFL, and growing it is giving fighters another place to go instead of it just being a monopoly that the UFC has truly created.
Francis is the pioneer of that currently, and this fight is amazing. It’s exciting, and it’s fun”.
