It’s been a week since Jake Paul attacked Conor McGregor’s training partner, Dillon Danis outside of Malka Media Studios in Santa Monica, California. Paul sat in the back of a pick-up truck and began to call out Danis before throwing water balloons at the Jiu-Jitsu ace in front of the production company building.
UFC commentator and podcaster, Joe Rogan gave his thoughts about the incident. He didn’t seem too happy with the YouTube sensation turned 2-0 boxer.
With Rogan making it clear about Danis’ ability and resume, it looks as if Paul doesn’t seem to care much about what anybody thinks. Hearing his thoughts on the incident may be the best thing for not only Jake Paul’s camp, but Jake Paul himself. A man of the theatrics, being a Disney Channel star, put him in center stage once again. As many fighters are looking to put an end to what seems to be a distraction to the sport of combat, two-division UFC champion Amanda Nunes already threw her name in the hat of fighters to face Paul. Now, former UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping wants to face him.
Either the fight world has been extremely outraged with a supposed “boxer” and self-promoter such as Paul or their acrimony towards him may look like a hidden sign of support to someone who seems to be hitting all the right notes. Kayfabe or shoot, in wrestling terminology, fans are excited about a possible fight with the internet celebrity and whoever it may be to face him first, either Nunes or Bisping.
