UFC star Vettori offers to beat up Jake Paul for FREE and sends chilling warning about 'locking' YouTuber in with him

UFC middleweight Marvin Vettori wants to teach Jake Paul a lesson about fighting by smashing him inside the cage.

Former Disney star Paul, 24, is currently gearing up for a boxing match with ex-UFC welterweight Ben Askren, whom he'll face a week on Saturday in Atlanta.

The YouTuber turned boxer has become one of the most-talked-about figures in combat sports, much to the frustration of many.

Vettori isn't a fan of Paul, so much so he's offered to fight him for free at Kings MMA in Huntington Beach, California.

The Italian, who will face Kevin Holland this weekend in the main event of UFC on ABC 2 told MMA Fighting: “Just tell him, somebody go get him and I want to make it a surprise.

"I want to show you something. Just bring him to Huntington.

"Once he steps in that door, we just lock the door. Trust me, we wouldn’t be unfair.

“It’s not like we would jump him or something but it’s just like you want to experiencing fighting? Good.


"Get into the cage and I’ll be glad to welcome him. I can send some 145’er that would smash him. It’s all right.

"It’s the world we live in these days. You can’t do much about it. You just stay in your own lane and do your own s**t. That’s it really.”

The outspoken Paul goes into his showdown with Askren next weekend as the bookies' favourite.

But legendary MMA coach Firas Zahabi reckons the social media star will end up being 'mauled' by Funky.

Zahabi, the long-time coach of UFC Hall-of-Famer Georges St-Pierre said: “I think Ben Askren wins."

He added: “Ben Askren is going to maul him in the clinch, dirty box him. He’s going to get warned by the referee, but it doesn’t matter.

“Barring the exception that Askren’s chin is finished (after that [Jorge] Masvidal KO), Askren is going to maul him.

"It’s not going to be pretty. It’s going to be a dirty fight.

"It’s going to be a seesaw battle a little bit early on, then all of a sudden Jake is going to fatigue and Ben Askren will be all over him.

“He’ll throw him on the floor, ragdoll him. Maybe even picks up and slams Jake Paul once or twice. It would not surprise me.

"Ben Askren probably doesn’t have a clause where if he gets disqualified, he doesn’t get paid. In my opinion, Ben Askren doesn’t care if he gets disqualified.

“He’s going to pull on his head, step on his feet — shove him so he’s off balance, and it’s going to be a mauling.

“How is he going to pick and poke, stick and move and stay away from Askren?

"Once they lock up, once they lock up, I guarantee you, Jake’s battery is going to start to drain.”
