Paddy Pimblett may have defeated Luigi Vendramini in his UFC debut on Saturday night, but is already planning to swap the octagon for the boxing ring.
The Liverpool lightweight produced a stunning display at UFC Fight Night 191 in Las Vegas, dismantling his Brazilian opponent with a first-round TKO win.
But as speculation mounts over his next opponent, the 26-year-old has instead turned his focus to YouTuber Jake Paul, who last month defeated Tyron Woodley on a split decision.
That extended Paul's perfect boxing record to five straight wins but Pimblett has been less than impressed.
“He’s a sausage. I’d fight him tomorrow, and I’d beat him up," he said.
"I f**king would. Save the embarrassment, and then you can get a tattoo done over."
Pimblett added that he didn't "waste his time" watching the bout between Paul and former UFC welterweight champion Woodley, but joined the calls questioning why the latter didn't finish the fight when he seemingly had the chance.
“No, I don’t waste my time watching sh** like that," he said.
“The only thing I’ve seen is where Woodley catches him with a punch and nearly knocks him out.
"I’ve heard from a few people that Woodley got robbed. But it’s one of their minutes. You need to finish people like that, or you’ll get robbed.”

However, it is unlikely 'The Baddy' will push for an immediate bout with Paul, and in the aftermath of Saturday's win called on UFC president Dana White and matchmaker Sean Shelby to bring the UFC back to England.
"I'm here to take over, lad. I'm the new cash cow. I'm the new main man on the UFC roster," he declared.
"People are going to be calling me out now. You know who the boy is!
"Dana, Shelby, let's get England back on, lad! Let's get back to the UK.

"Get your boy in the main event, or the co-main, and I'll blow the roof off the gaff."
Pimblett, 26, was linked with the UFC throughout his time with British MMA promotion Cage Warriors, where he became a featherweight champion.
But despite twice being offered contracts to join the UFC, Pimblett turned down the chance on both occasions, choosing instead to stay on the UK scene until he felt he was ready to make the jump to the world stage.
