    Jake by KO, at least he is somewhat athletic with some power and naturally larger.

    I could see him become top 5 in mw with some favourable matchups.

    Also one of the few MMA artists to not retire on a defeat. Joins the likes of Khabib and GSP to not retire on a loss.

    CM Punk set the bar very low. Jake already did better than CM Punk even though it's boxing and not UFC. It was basically the same thing CM Punk was trying to do, but he actually trained properly for it. CM Punk obviously wasn't prepared for it technically and physically. He has the money for the best training too and yet came in completely unprepared in both fights.

    This.

    I saw an MMA site today discuss his DI college wrestling and mentioned a "full ride".

    I have not heard of this guy wrestling in college. Also, since DI colleges are only allowed 9.9 wrestling scholarships, it is extremely rare for a college wrestler to have a full scholarship.

    I wish MMA sites had fact checkers.

    Only in a boxing match. I'm sure Askren and Woodley would have beat him if takedowns were allowed. It's hard to judge Paul's talents until he fights a guy that is a legit boxer in his prime. He's cherry picking guys right now.

    I think so- more of a fighters mentality, likes to inflict damage- TKO RD 1 in MMA- Don't think it would even be competitive-

    NFTs have to be the stupidest shit ever made.

    Unless you're money laundering.

    OK. I guess there have always been people wealthy enough to spend money whimsically.
