Schaub said of Paul’s impact in combat sports since he started boxing, on the PBD Podcast. “I think you see a guy in Jake Paul who calls attention to the pay of fighters. [He’s] showing that he is in control of his own destiny. This is his production. He takes advantage of it all. So I think if you see… the fighters are smart, they can take something and learn something from that.
“It doesn’t hurt Dana,” Schaub said of Jake Paul’s boxing. “The UFC can’t be hurt. Dana is awesome. So he can’t get hurt, but you know, Dana, every time there’s competition he’s going to shit. But I think [Paul’s] good for everyone.
