That’s what “The Nigerian Nightmares” manager, Ali Abdelaziz,believes will happen IF a fight between his client and YouTuber turned boxing star Jake Paul can be hashed out … as long as UFC honcho and master promoter, Dana White is involved.
“Dana White has to have the microphone, he has to be the promoter,” Ali says, later continuing … “[Dana’s] gonna get the UFC monster machine behind it and it’s gonna sell I think, this fight did 3, 4 million Pay-Per-View buys, right, but on UFC’s platform.”
Of course, Jake — 3-0 in the ring — and the UFC welterweight champ went back-and-forthwith the trash talk earlier this week … with both guys saying they want to fight.
To put the PPV #’s into perspective, Paul vs. Ben Askren reportedly sold 1.5 million PPV’s (a total some have questioned) at $50 a pop. But if the figures are accurate … just do the math.
So sure, Jake would get the bag … but Ali says the fight would be more a slaughtering than a boxing match.
So let’s get this straight:
1. Usman calls me out to fight on TMZ sports interview
2. I quickly accept the challenge to fight and will give him biggest pay day of career ($10m+)
3. Usman then backs out of fight because I’m “a Disney kid”
