Between 2018-2019 the Rio De Janeiro-born striker racked up wins over Kevin Holland, Eryk Anders, Jimi Manuwa and former champion Jan Blachowicz. Two of those wins were acrued via stunning knockouts. He then went on to challenge Jon Jones for the title at UFC 239 in a fight many pundits thought he won. But after suffering two leg injuries in the bout, Thiago Santos was arguably never the same.
Jake Paul was originally supposed to fight Fury at Madison Square Garden in August. The 25-year-old has now issued an ultimatum to the Brit, and says he’ll fight him in his own back yard.
“Dear @FrankWarren, I agree to fight Tommy in Manchester or London in Feb. I’ll come to his country, no more running. His baby is due then & you’ve said it’s no issue. Since John is adamant we’ve agreed, I am giving u 7 days to present a signed contract by Tommy or I’m moving on,” wrote Jake Paul.
If things fall through again with Fury, do you think Thiago Santos vs Jake Paul could happen?
