Jake Paul branded ‘clown’ by Chuck Liddell as UFC legend calls out YouTuber for fight after Floyd Mayweather scuffle

JAKE PAUL is a 'clown', according to UFC icon Chuck Liddell.

The former MMA star also said he is 'ready any time' when urged to fight the YouTuber.

Internet personality Paul has been making enemies all over the place.

And they include boxing legend Floyd Mayweather who he recently brawled with at a press event ahead of his brother Logan's fight with 'Money'.

Jake sparked a mass melee after he stole Mayweather's hat, with Logan also involved in the ugly scenes.

Many famous fighters have slammed Jake's actions and Liddell is the latest name to be added to the list.

A fight fan on Twitter urged Liddell to 'shut Paul's mouth'.

And former light-heavyweight champion Liddell retorted: "I'm ready any time for that clown."

The jibe came as a shock to many as Liddell appears to have something of relationship with Paul's 'Triller Fight Cub' promotion having appeared in an advert for the new firm.

He was also seen partying in Atlanta with Logan after Jake's win over Ben Askren.

Older brother Logan faces Mayweather on June 6 in Miami, but in an exhibition bout not counting on their professional records.

Speaking just days before the sensational brawl with Mayweather, Jake, 24, who is 3-0, confirmed his interest in fighting 50-0 Mayweather, 44, after Logan, 26.

But he demanded it be a professional contest with their unbeaten records on the line.

Jake told SunSport: "I don't want to do exhibitions and I think that's the difference between Floyd and I and even my brother and I.

"I want legitimate pro fights that are sanctioned, I want to build my pro record.

"I don't think Floyd would actually fight me outside of an exhibition as he doesn't want to risk his record.

"Maybe if we can come to some kind of agreement around that, I'd fight Floyd. But I'm not doing like the circus, exhibition s***."
