Dillon has yet to respond but Bellator MMA president Scott Coker told Jake any business he wanted to handle with the fighter had to go through him first.

This isn’t the first time Jake has sparked a Twitter beef with an athlete or celebrity. He went back and forth with pro-NFL player Dez Bryant and even took a jab at pop singer Chris Brown. The callout comes shortly after details about the KSI vs Logan rematch were revealed but it seems Jake and his brother Logan might be able to make a career out of the sport.
After being previously turned down by UFC president Dana White, sports commentator Joe Rogan praised Logan’s fighting skills. MMA fighter Sage Northcutt said he’d like to jump in the ring with the YouTuber. The Paul brothers bring in lots of money and views and boxing is a business. Fighters and sports enthusiasts know that a fight featuring Logan or Jake would be a lucrative match.
“Dana is not a fool,” said MMA fighter Tyrone Woodley told TMZ. “He’s gonna fight. Mark my words – Logan Paul will fight in the UFC.”
