Jake Paul has played down his chances of fighting in the UFC by claiming he makes more than every fighter on the roster combined, including Conor McGregor.
Talks of Paul fighting in the UFC have come after the YouTube star called out McGregor, Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz following his knockout win again Tyron Woodley.
The 24-year-old is five fights deep into his professional boxing career and has knocked out every opponent he's faced, but has never competed in MMA.
Masvidal responded to a $5 million fight offer from Paul by countering with a $20 million request plus a percentage of the pay-per-view sales.
And Paul dismissed Masvidal's suggestion of the pair fighting in the UFC with an altered ruleset.
"I make more than every UFC fighter f****** combined, including Conor. he said on the 'Impaulsive' podcast.
"Y'all work for f***ing Dana, y'all work for WME, Endeavor, that's who you work for. I make more than all of you silly mother*******.
"Why would I go into the UFC? Sign a contract and give away my f***ing rights and s***. I own my content, I own my platform, I own everything.
"They don't own s***, they are literally employees. I'm a f****** CEO and every UFC fighter is an employee. Get that straight.
"I'm not coming over there and doing s*** with y'all. Suck my nuts."
UFC fighters are ineligible to compete in other promotions whilst under contract, with only McGregor receiving an exemption in 2017 to fight ring legend Floyd Mayweather.
Paul has reportedly earned eight-figure paydays for his last three boxing fights, with pay-per-view figures for his latest fight yet to be revealed.
'The Problem Child' has previously criticised UFC president Dana White for "underpaying" his fighters and said he made more in his third fight than any fighter in UFC history.

Paul has shared his support for UFC fighters in the past even donating $5,000 to a GoFundMe after flyweight Sarah Alpar struggled to pay for her training camp.
And Paul explained why he isn't trying to demean UFC fighters when boasting about his pay.
He continued: "It's not to demean every UFC fighter because obviously you want to be part of a big platform.
"But when these guys are talking s*** to me online, y'all have no idea what you're talking about.
"They're employees, I'm a CEO but the point I'm making is the situation they're in is not good and it needs changed.
"But don't try to play the CEO boss s*** with me. Offers, trying to talk negotiations and money, because I'll run circles around all these mother*******."
