“Why not have a share in this piece of the pie? This pie is going to be baked, whether it’s in a year or two years, this pie is in the oven dude,” Schaub said of a fight between Jake and Conor.

“I don’t know what the hesitation is. I would say that Jake-Paul is better suited to compete in the UFC than CM Punk. He has professional fights. Again, UFC, Conor will make all the money in the world, Jake will make all the money in the world. It happens, play ball with this kid. I know you don’t like him or whatever, but play with him.”
