Jake Paul received anything but a warm welcome at UFC 261.
A "fuck Jake Paul" chant broke out in the crowd during the UFC 261 featured preliminary fight between Alex Oliveira and Karl Roberson. UFC commentator Daniel Cormier subsequently revealed that Paul had entered the arena. The former two-division UFC champion threatened to slap the YouTuber-turned-boxer live on the air.
“I swear to god, I just saw Jake Paul. I pointed at him, I said, ‘Don’t play with me.’ Because I’ll slap him in the face. I don’t play those games, Joe.”— Simon Samano (@SJSamano) April 25, 2021
