Jake Paul wants everyone to know that he’s taking his transition to MMA very seriously.
Two weeks ago, the Youtuber-turned boxer announced that he was signing a deal with the PFL to make his debut in MMA.
“I’ve proven myself in and out of the boxing ring, and now I am going to do the same in MMA,”
“There is no limit to the positive impact I can make on the sport. I plan to enter the PFL SmartCage and once again show the world that anything is possible with hard work and dedication.”
