Jake Paul calls Michael Bisping ‘an easy fight,’ teases bout offer; Bisping fires back


Michael Bisping doesn’t have anything to prove to Jake Paul.

“The count” had a lot of banter this weekend with Paul after first prodding “The Problem Child”, in response to an article that stated Bisping was on Paul’s hit list.

Paul has been undefeated in five professional boxing matches, four of which were by knockout. He has victories over Ben Askren (Bellator) and Tyron Woodley, former MMA welterweight champs (UFC).

Bisping was a UFC former champion middleweight. He questioned Paul’s wisdom in picking on someone of his size.

“Please come on [Paul], You do know that I’m around your height?” Bisping posted on Twitter. “Surely that excludes me from your ‘hit list.'”

It didn’t take long for Paul to respond. He boasted that he would knock Bisping out worse than Dan Henderson did to Bisping at UFC 100, then offered to help the Englishman earn a massive payday if he can get cleared by a commission to compete. Bisping, 43, retired from fighting in 2018 and currently serves as an analyst for the UFC.

” You’re an easy fighter,” Paul said.

Bisping appeared to laugh off the insult, reminding Paul of his achievements and stating that Paul will never reach his level of respect.

” “I won both a world title and, more importantly, the respect of my fight community,” Bisping stated. Unfortunately Jakey, those are two things that you won’t ever do. Ever. That should be .”

In the past, Bisping has actually been complimentary of Paul’s venture into boxing, telling MMA Fighting this past August, “You can’t hate on Jake Paul for what he’s doing in fights. If anything, you’ve got to respect him even more.” It was also confirmed through Paul’s management that Bisping was previously offered a chance to fight Paul.

Bisping reminded Paul’s team of this when they joined in the conversation.
