Amanda Nunes has declared she would be ready to fight YouTube boxer Jake Paul after UFC president Dana White joked he was willing to make the bout happen.
Outspoken YouTuber Paul earlier this month claimed he is ‘dedicating his life’ to beating UFC legend Conor McGregor in a boxing ring following his knock-out victory against former NBA player Nate Robinson.
White however refused to sanction the fight and said he would consider a bout between Paul and Brazilian star Nunes.
And Nunes signalled she would be prepared for an inter-gender bout by tweeting: ‘I’m in’.
The war of words between White and Paul began when the former slammed the state of boxing after questioning how a ‘kid that got beat up by the f****** video game kid from England’ is now facing Floyd Mayweather.
That led Paul to tear into White in an expletive-filled Instagram video, stating: ‘Dana White, you’re a f****** p****, too, you ugly, f****** bald b****,’ he said.
‘You said there’s zero per cent chance of this fight happening, but there’s zero per cent chance of you getting some p****. Conor, you’re scared. Dana, you’re scared.
‘Sign the f****** contract, you idiots. Jesus f****** Christ. Irish b****. F*** these guys.’
Responding to Paul’s message, White told TMZ: ‘I’m thinking of letting Amanda Nunes knock his a** out.’
UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion Nunes – who is on an 11-match winning streak – is considered one of the best female UFC fighters and has beaten Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm during her career on her way to the very top.
At UFC 250 in June, she was victorious against Felicia Spencer to become the first fighter in the history of UFC to defend two titles in two different weight classes while still holding both of them.
