UFC star Jorge Masvidal says he is ready to become Dana White's "assassin" in a potential fight with Jake Paul – insisting he would "put a hurting on" the YouTuber or his brother Logan.
The Paul brothers are making waves in the combat-sports world after venturing into boxing, with Jake winning his first four professional contests and recently getting the better of former UFC fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
As for Logan, after suffering a split-decision loss against fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019 he secured a money-spinning exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather, going the distance with the boxing legend earlier this year.
While both brothers regard themselves as active fighters, it is Jake who has been making headlines by calling out a number of top-level boxing and UFC stars – including Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez.
But now Masvidal, who holds the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, has thrown his name in the hat to "beat up" the Pauls in the near future.
"I'm gonna beat up all the Pauls," the UFC welterweight title challenger told ESPN.

"If they put money in my pocket, that Logan Paul dude, Jake Paul, whoever Paul dudes – if they put money in my pocket, of course I'd like to break some Disney characters' faces.
"I've been fighting men who have been training since 7, 8 years old to do the same thing to me what I want to do to them.
"Fighting guys like [the Pauls] is a bonus, man."

After cementing his place in UFC history by knocking out Askren in just five seconds, Masvidal was on hand with some advice for Paul before his own bout with 'Funky' back in April.
However, he continued: "Who the f**k is this Paul kid?. He thinks we're friends, because I gave him some advice in the Ben Askren fight.
"Get the f**k out of here, bro. I'll slap you and whoever the f**k you want, bro. I'm a fighter.
