Jake Paul couldn’t wait to take his shots at Claressa Shields on Wednesday evening.
At 2021 PFL Championship, Shields (1-1) took on Abigail Montes in just her second professional MMA fight. Unfortunately for Shields, she ended up on the wrong side of a split decision in a close fight, and Paul took the opportunity to share his take.
I love karma @Claressashields,
Congrats Abigail Montes! Someone get her a Twitter! pic.twitter.com/gRTqKLZt8A

“The truth hurts but it’s necessary. Claressa Shields is a loser. In MMA, and even more so with her prima donna attitude. The fake always get exposed. Losses come when anger and hate take over. Just ask Rousey and McGregor. She spent more time berating Jake Paul than learning Jiu Jitsu. She’s never been a big draw and unfortunately for her she never will be. Amanda Serrano (the GWOAT) though, has 30 KOs in 42 fights. 2-0 in MMA, both wins by submission. Congrats Abigail Montes on the win.”
During the pre-fight press conference, Shields was asked if she would want to be on Paul’s undercard for a boxing match in the future. Shields responded by saying, “Don’t ever disrespect me. I would never fight on the undercard of Jake Paul.” She would explain her stance by pointing to her accomplishments as a championship boxer vs. Paul, who only has four wins in his career.
It appears that Paul took exception to Shields’ response to that question, as indicated by the words he threw her way in the message above.
Paul, who is an undefeated boxer, does not currently have another fight scheduled. His most recent outing was a split decision victory over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in August.
