HOAM | Should Dana White Call Jake Paul's Bluff After Alex Pereira Callout?

HOAM | Should Dana White Call Jake Paul's Bluff After Alex Pereira Callout?

explicit

After stopping Mike Perry in the sixth round of their boxing headliner this past Saturday, Jake Paul called out UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira — which most believe is a brilliant callout because Dana White and the UFC wouldn't allow it to happen. But what if White showed up to the press conference after UFC 304 and gave a "be careful what you wish for" type response and gave Pereira his blessing? On an all-new edition of Heck of a Morning, MMA Fighting's Mike Heck reacts to Paul's win and callout, and discusses what could happen if White calls Paul's bluff. Additionally, listener topics include UFC 304, Leon Edwards vs. Belal Muhammad 2, what the welterweight division looks like if Muhammad wins the title, what Tom Aspinall is risking when he defends his interim heavyweight title against Curtis Blaydes in Saturday's main event, and much more. You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 a.m. ET on the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.
