Right after defeating Evander Holyfield on Saturday night’s Triller Fight Club headliner, former UFC champion Vitor Belfort directed his attention to Jake Paul. “The Phenom” issued an angry challenge to “The Problem Child,” and he came bearing a proposition.

“We’ve got $25 million, the winner takes all. Let’s go! Hey Jake Paul, stop running from me, man! I’m gonna teach you a lesson! You can be my kid, you’re gonna meet daddy over here at Triller!
“Stop running! You’re a little b—ch!”
Triller then decided to up the ante, with head honcho Ryan Kavanagh raising the proposed amount to $30 million and suggested the fight happen on Thanksgiving weekend.
During the post-fight press conference, Belfort also claimed to have been offered $40 million to fight Canelo Alvarez.
The 24-year-old Paul did have two fights under Triller: against Nate Robinson last November and Ben Askren in April. In May, he signed a multi-fight deal with Showtime Boxing. The first bout in this new contract happened against Tyron Woodley two weeks ago, which he won via split decision.
