Jake Paul Calls Out KSI To MMA Fight

Jake Paul Calls Out KSI To MMA Fight

It's the social media beef that is not tender, juicy or even edible.

It's the war between British YouTuber KSI and American YouTuber Jake Paul (and technically his brother Logan and any other Paul).

But while you might be getting tired of this feud, aren't we all, the game has been elevated slightly after a pretty lucrative offer was made.

The stakes are higher now because their rivalry includes KSI's brother Deji, who has called Jake Paul a 'pussy' and a 'bitch' multiple times in a vlog.

In a separate video, Deji shows himself 'looking' for Jake Paul in Los Angeles, prompting Paul to release a vlog of his own where the two have a war of words over the phone.

While all the attention has been on whether Paul and KSI will go toe-to-toe with each other, the 20-year-old American YouTuber said he wanted to face off with Deji for smack talking him in videos. Paul even went as far as installing an impressive MMA octagon in his living room.


Deji backs away from the offer of a fight, partly because he doesn't want to do MMA and because he hasn't trained for a match like that. Jake says he doesn't want to agree to a boxing match because that's 'not a real fight' - I'd love him to say that to Anthony Joshua or Wladimir Klistchko.


"A boxing match is not a real fight. It doesn't show who is a real fighter. Big pads on gloves, and I'm not going to utilise only my fists in a fight. That's not how people fight," Paul tells the camera.

The American even boldly offers Deji a $100,000 prize if he beats him in an MMA fight.

He then offers something a bit weird.

The 20-year-old says he'll fight KSI if each round alternated between boxing and MMA. Round 1 would be boxing, Round 2 is MMA and so for. It's pretty unlikely a deal like that would ever go ahead but who knows, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather managed to make an agreement, why couldn't KSI/Deji and the Pauls?

This whole unfortunate feud started when KSI called out the American social media stars following his boxing win over Joe Weller. In his victory speech, he said: "If any YouTuber wants it they can come and get it. Jake Paul, Logan Paul, any of the Pauls - I don't care. Bring it."

I don't think I'm alone in wishing he never said that.
