MICHAEL BISPING slammed Jake Paul for fighting opponents who were ‘much smaller than him’.
YouTuber-turned-prizefighter Paul announced his return to the ring on August 6 with women’s legend Amanda Serrano on the undercard.
Serrano, 33, promoted and managed by Paul, starred alongside the American on the poster.
Taking a swipe, Bisping tweeted, “Wait @jakepaul you fight Amanda Serrano? Wow. Can’t say I’m surprised haha.”
A not so quick-witted fan then broke the news to the UFC legend that Paul wasn’t actually playing Serrano.
But Bisping, 43, replied: “Sorry mate but you’re the jerk of the day.
“I’m very aware that ‘he fights by her side,’ the joke is that he’s so scared his next opponent will be against a woman who’s (as usual) much smaller than him. Like all his opponents.”
Paul, 25, has come under fire for not yet fighting an opponent with professional boxing experience.
He was set to do so in December, until Tommy Fury, 23, pulled out of their celebrity grudge match with a broken rib and chest infection.
Paul instead knocked out 40-year-old backup Tyron Woodley, whom he had previously beaten on points in August.

It contributed to the KOs over player ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson (37) and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren (37).
Paul is now in talks to postpone his fight with Fury after announcing his return at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Fury last beat Pole Daniel Bocianski, 27, on points on the undercard of brother Tyson’s fight at Wembley.
