However, the former cruiser contender also asserted that although they have a lot of experience in the cage, Paul will have their number in the ring.
Flores said Schmo: “There’s a lot of names, a lot of guys, you know obviously the guys that are in the UFC now have contracts.

“You know, that’s obviously my bias but it’s going to be very difficult for them to do what they have to do to beat Jake in eight rounds or ten rounds.”
Paul, 24, is currently the boxer with the most 5-0. recently took down Tyron Woodley, 39, three months after beating the former UFC champion on points.

“We talked about some options but Nakisa (Bidarian) and Jake decided to have that rematch against Tyron because he deserves the holiday and respite and we don’t want to push it back and not let it go. allow him to fight.
“It’s the worst feeling in the world so I don’t think Tommy is on Jake’s mind right now.
