Demetrious Johnson Slams Jake Paul For Calling MMA Fighters: ‘F*cking do Martial Arts’

Demetrious Johnson apparently thinks Jake Paul should fight in MMA.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer has spent most of his boxing career calling out MMA fighters. On that front, he actually faced two of them in the ring, beating both Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. His most recent outing was a knockout victory over “The Chosen One” in December.

After that fight, he continued his attack on MMA fighters. During this period, he called names such as Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal. He has also shown an interest in training in the sport of MMA and eventually fighting in the UFC.

It looks like Demetrious Johnson thinks it’s a great idea, as he said in an interview with MMAJunkie. “Mighty Mouse” fights this weekend in a mixed rules bout against Rodtang Jitmuangnon in ONE X. The way Johnson sees it, if he can fight in this bout, Paul can actually compete in MMA.

“If Jake Paul thinks he’s that bad at boxing and all that, hats off. You’re 3-0, 4-0 as a boxer. Do some fucking mixed martial arts. I did an interview l another day and I was like, ‘Everyone is worried about fighting this person, let’s see how much money I can make with this person.’ I was like, ‘Just do mixed martial arts.’ You think you’re awesome, do it. If I thought I was a badass boxer, I’d say, “Just let me box.” Even when they offered me that fight, it’s Rodtang. I was like, ‘I’m going to fight muay thai.’ » (h/t MMAJunkie)

Demetrious Johnson continued:

“I don’t care. What’s the worst thing that can happen? I get knocked out? OK. I’m going home, I’m training, I’m preparing for the next one. If I win, what’s going to happen? I’m going home, I’m going to prepare for the next one. So for me, I could say I did, I tried. As you get older, you find that you don’t hit people for trying. For me, when someone’s like, ‘Ah blah, blah, blah, you suck at MMA guys.’ It’s like, ‘Then come do it.’ If you succeed, good job.You lose, you tried.
