JORGE MASVIDAL has set his sights on fighting the much-maligned Paul brothers.
The UFC star, 36, recently became embroiled in a war of words with Jake Paul ahead of the YouTuber’s recent boxing victory over Tyron Woodley.

Now the welterweight has revealed to ESPN that he could be keen on fighting either Jake or his older brother Logan inside the ring.
Masvidal, who appeared on All Elite Wrestling’s ‘All Out’ pay-per-view last night, said: “I’m gonna beat up all the Pauls.
“If they put money in my pocket, that Logan Paul dude, Jake Paul, whoever Paul dudes – if they put money in my pocket, of course I’d like to break some Disney characters’ faces.
“I’ve been fighting men who have been training since seven, eight-years-old to do the same thing to me what I want to do to them.
“Fighting guys like [the Pauls] is a bonus, man.”
Masvidal had predicted that his American Top Team colleague Woodley would knock out Jake ahead of their clash – something Paul did not appreciate as he thought they were friends.

Masvidal said: “Who the f*** is this Paul kid?” He thinks we’re friends, because I gave him some advice in the Ben Askren fight.
“Get the f*** out of here, bro. I’ll slap you and whoever the f*** you want, bro. I’m a fighter. Of course you’re gonna get offended.”
On whether UFC president Dana White would give him the green light for the fight, he added: “UFC would have to sign off, but nothing is impossible.
“Dana doesn’t like those guys and Dana knows I’ll go in there and put a hurting on those kids. Maybe he does send in the f***ing assassin.”
Masvidal has suffered back-to-back losses to Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title in his last outings.
But he also revealed he is meeting with UFC execs in Las Vegas in a fortnight to sort out his next clash.
