Jake Paul’s potential opponents as five fights await after Tyron Woodley KO

Jake Paul has set his sights on several UFC stars following his blockbuster win over Tyron Woodley – mocking Dana White before calling out Conor McGregor.

The 24-year-old now has a perfect record from his five professional outings, winning by stoppage against each of his four opponents following his latest knock-out triumph.

The younger of the Paul brothers bounced back from the disappointment of Tommy Fury's withdrawal to beat late replacement Woodley, and he is not short of options for his sixth official bout.

Daily Star Sport has taken a look at five names Jake could face next in the ring, including the three MMA stars he called out on Saturday evening.

Tommy Fury

Tommy Fury might well get another chance to take on Paul following his recent injury woe, having suffered from a severe chest infection and broken rib in the build-up.

Paul said after the bout: "Tommy Fury is lucky he wasn't in there tonight because Tyron is way tougher, he has that experience and Tommy would have looked a lot worse than that and that was pretty bad."

That came after he wore a UK-themed outfit for his ring-walk, which included a message that read: "Hey Tommy, wish you could've been here but watching from a TV is cool too."

Nate Diaz

While saying that "nobody was safe" from his wrath, Jake called out UFC veteran Nate Diaz, who has lost three of his last four MMA bouts since beating Conor McGregor.

The 36-year-old, who once challenged for the UFC Lightweight Championship, lost to Leon Edwards in his most recent outing, has also been linked with a Dustin Poirier match-up in January.

In naming Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, Kamaru Usman and McGregor, Jake said: "I will embarrass them, too. I promise you that."

Jorge Masvidal

Jorge Masvidal could be eyeing a new challenge following back-to-back losses against UFC Welterweight king Usman, having beaten Diaz by doctor stoppage back in 2019.

With Masvidal saying in a video response: “Now to address that little b***** [Jake Paul], that f*****.

"Listen man, you can’t f****** afford me. Me and the other names that you mentioned, you can’t afford. I know what you pay. You talk a big game."

Kamaru Usman

Usman could be another potential opponent for Jake despite his UFC dominance and Dana White's desire for his fighters to ignore the call out.

Usman has won 19 MMA bouts in a row and five as UFC Welterweight Champion, and has been linked with a bout against Edwards in 2022 having beaten the Brit in 2015.

Following Jake's victory, fans joked online that Usman was responsible for beginning Woodley's losing streak after taking his UFC crown in 2019.

He said: "I am not responsible for any of this!!!"

Conor McGregor

The last name on the list is that of Conor McGregor, who recently called out UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira, despite losing twice to Dustin Poirier this year.

The Irishman is currently recovering from a broken tibia, might well choose to step back into boxing as he did to take on Floyd Mayweather Jr back in 2017.

Jake told Bleacher Report: "I will fight everybody. This started with me calling out McGregor.

"And people were like 'this kids crazy, Conor will kill him'. But now this fight could happen within the next 24 months one hundred percent.
