    I'm sure Bellator will accommodate his steroid cycles and lack of experience in order to try and draw views to their promotion. Let him juice and feed him jobbers, I wouldn't put it past them.

    Bellator will feed him a steady diet of cans in an attempt to slowly build him

    To be fair it was supposed to be Tommy Fury. He already beat Woodley so it was a hard sell overall. There was no real interest for the rematch. The KO in the fight delivered for Jake Paul though, so there will be interest in his next fight as long as it's a new opponent. Everyone wants him to fight a boxer, word is Chavez Jr fight. He won't fight Silva or Belfort, he wants to stay undefeated vs mma fighters and both are too dangerous for him to fight. He would rather lose to a boxer. He boxes with pro boxers so he knows where his level is at with them, that's why he's not in a hurry to step up in boxing competition. The Tommy Fury would've been a solid test to see where he's at vs another prospect.

    Everyone would be interested until they sit down and discuss figures. Who's going to pay him over a million to fight?

    What if ?
    Jake Paul was doing this all for Dana, Dana failed to create a UFC boxing promotion so has JP build himself up as a boxer making fun of UFC then they come to an agreement create a boxing promotion with Dana that gets paid ok to attract boxers.

    Unlikely.. but ...

    I answered Bellator, as that would easily be the best fit for him, but the money issue? Hope it happens, though. Would give Bellator the kind of buzz they need in the worst way.

    He is ducking One confirmed.
    Now seriously. If he joined mma organisation
    he would fight in his own weight class.
    Remember all his fights were on his terms and people smaller than him
    1. Youtuber
    2. Former basketball player
    3. Retired mma wrestling specialist with hip replacement
    4. Mma wrestler on a loosing streak
    5. Same guy as in 4.
    All guys shorter and weighted less than him.

    The only way it would make sense for him to do an MMA fight would be if he was in partnership with an organization and wanted to use his fame to really help make them into a competitor against the UFC. Other than that it's all just hype, which is good for him.

    I think Paul KO'ing Asscream and The Frozen One gassed up his confidence and he thinks he can do the same in MMA. He actually could probably beat alot of lower level guys now, and if he does get into MMA, he will choose easy opponents like he has in boxing. I give the guy credit for getting in there - I think we all have been impressed he made it this far in a little time. Clearly he is doing something right.

    Why would he fight anywhere else? Switch to MMA and find fighters willing to take dives for him like he has for "boxing."

    Paul is smart. He knows his big money fight opportunities in boxing are running out. At some point he will have to face a real boxer, but there aren’t many with a big name.

    He can start fresh if he comes to MMA and beat some popular nobody.
