“Waste of time, nobody knows who she is!”: Jake Paul rejects Dana White’s call to fight Amanda Nunes – for wanting to knock out Dillon Danis after “two years of talking” over an ex-girlfriend
- Jake Paul molested Connor McGregor to fight him in the boxing ring
- The YouTuber is now set to box former UFC fighter Ben Askren in March
- Dana White mocked Paul and suggested he fight UFC Champion Amanda Nunes
- Paul isn’t interested but hopes to fight McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis
Jake Paul has no interest in facing UFC champion Amanda Nunes because “nobody knows who she is”, instead targeting MMA fighter Dillon Danis.
Since the extermination of former NBA star Nate Robinson, the YouTuber has insulted a selection of fighters in search of their attention, with a boxing match against Connor McGregor high on his wish list.
Ignoring the 23-year-old, ridiculed by UFC President Dana White, McGregor joked, “I’m thinking of letting Amanda Nunes knock his ass out.” The reigning double champion replied on Twitter: “I’m in.”

“No, I wouldn’t fight them,” the Ohio-born vlogger replied to TMZ Sports.
“Waste of time, nobody knows who she is. There’s not a lot of hype there. Besides, there is no story.
“I want to take Dillon off because we haven’t talked for two years. I met his girlfriend, he’s totally hurt, that’s history.”
Danis is a McGregor team-mate and has two wins without loss to UFC competitor Bellator.

Ben Askren is next for Paul, with a clash for March as the ex-UFC welterweight’s goal is, “Make a ton of money beating up a man who pretends to be an athlete.”

Logan Paul is now scheduled for a show bout with boxing icon Floyd Mayweather on February 20th, a bout that has been ridiculed by many in the sport.
