Jake Paul says his MMA debut is “coming soon”

After having two boxing matches against one another, one resulting in a horrific knockout loss, Tyron Woodley joined Jake Paul today on his podcast “BS w/ Jake Paul.”

On the show, Woodley asked Paul about future aspirations of transitioning to MMA.

The famed YouTuber turned boxer in Paul says he’s finally getting into the world of mixed martial arts and is working with a “big organization” to make his MMA dreams come true.

“I’ve got an announcement coming soon,” Jake said. “I can just tease that, that I’m working with a big organization right now on a whole thing in MMA that also has to do with me fighting and we’re gonna have an announcement soon. I want to do it.

“Javier Mendez said he would train me. So I’ll go to AKA. I’ll probably need like a year, year and a half to get the kicks down. I already know jiu-jitsu. …I wanna be able to do everything in there. At least checking kicks. I know how to wrestle already.”

“The Chosen One” Woodley is the former UFC welterweight champion and dropped consecutive boxing bouts to Paul in 2021. The first, a split decision in August, followed by a vicious sixth round knockout in December.

Paul faces his toughest test yet when he meets Anderson Silva in a boxing bout in Glendale, Arizona on October 29.
