Chuck Liddell On Potential Jake Paul Fight: "He's Not Good Enough To Fight Me"

UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell doesn't seem to have any interest in fighting YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul, anytime soon.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion was approached by TMZ Sports out in Los Angeles, California, and said the following when asked if there was any possibility of him fighting Paul in his next boxing outing.

"He’s not good enough to fight me,” Liddell said. “It just doesn’t make sense for him. None of it makes sense for this guy. He’s going to risk getting hurt like that?”

Liddell last competed in November 2018 where he was viciously knocked out in the first round of a trilogy bout with longtime rival Tito Ortiz in an event promoted by Golden Boy. The 24-year old Paul is 3-0 as a professional boxer so far and defeated former Bellator welterweight champion, Ben Askren, in under two minutes, knocking him out back on April 17. Paul has a deal with Showtime Sports to produce his next boxing event, his older brother Logan Paul will take on Floyd Mayweather Jr. this Sunday in a spectacle matchup that will also be under the Showtime banner.
