UFC legend Tony Ferguson has offered to coach YouTube boxer Jake Paul before his anticipated MMA debut.
Paul recently joined the PFL and is anticipated to make his MMA debut in the new Super Fight division, which will host two pay-per-view events in 2023. The category will pit influencers and celebrities against professional fighters, with all players guaranteed at least half of the pay-per-view earnings.
Paul, 25, has defeated Anderson Silva, Tyron Woodley, and Ben Askren in the boxing arena, amassing spectacular victories. "I've already disrupted boxing and now it's time to disrupt MMA," he said, vowing to destabilize MMA in the same way he has done in boxing.
Ferguson has since struggled in the Octagon, losing his last five contests. In the upcoming year, he is predicted to return to the Octagon for what might end up being his final match with the promotion.
In a tweet, Ferguson wrote, “Let me know when you need a good MMA coach, Jake Paul. You can be one of my students.”
