Whilst Paul was in talks with the former Love Island star, Chalmers called out the YouTuber to tell him he was taking on the ‘wrong person’ if he wanted to fight someone from the UK.

Last September he told Paul: “With all due respect, if you’re looking at fighting someone from the UK who does big numbers you’re looking at the wrong person.

“Just look at the viewings every Bellator card I was on, sold out my home town arena twice. Let’s fight Jake Paul”

However Paul’s priorities could well lie elsewhere, after openly revealing he wants to take on another MMA star in UFC legend Conor McGregor.
