YouTuber Jake Paul has brutally rejected a fight with female UFC icon Amanda Nunes as it would be a “bull****” match up.

Social media star Paul, who boasts a total of over 20m subscribers on his YouTube channel, has been calling for another chance to show his fighting ability.

The 23-year-old secured an emphatic second round KO win over professional basketball player Nate Robinson on the undercard for Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. last month.

Paul has since called out Irish lightweight Conor McGregor for a fight in the Octagon.

But he was put down by UFC chief Dana White, who fired back: “I’m thinking of letting Amanda Nunes knock his ass out.”

The Brazilian two-division champion appeared to be up for the fight, tweeting: “I’m in! @ufc @danawhite.”

But Paul has put any talk of a male vs female fight to bed as he wants to fight McGregor's teammate Dillon Danis instead, having shared words with the Bellator man.

"Nah, I wouldn't fight her," Paul told TMZ Sports. "Waste of time. No one knows who she is.

"There's not a lot of hype there. Plus, there's no history.

"I wanna knock out Dilon because we've been talkin' s**t back and forth for 2 years, I've hooked up with his girlfriend, he's all butt-hurt about it, there's history there.

"So, why would I waste my time doing some bulls**t like [boxing Nunes?]."

First though, it appears that Paul will step into the world of MMA with a bout against former UFC welterweight Ben Askren which is set to take place in Los Angeles on March 28.

"Yes, Mr. Jake Paul, I do accept," Askren said in a video.

"It's a pretty simple choice – I'm going to make a whole bunch of money to beat up a guy who is pretending to be an athlete.

"I know you may think I do not have too many stand-up skills, but at the end of the day, I don't really need to.

"I'm a world-class athlete – I've won NCAA titles, I've been to the Olympics, won belts in multiple mixed martial arts organisations.

"Quite frankly I'm impressed that you've deluded yourself into thinking you are actually a fighter, that you are really tough, that you can really box. It's quite impressive."
