Jake Paul has some thoughts on the recent WWE-UFC merger.
On Monday, Endeavor announced they were merging the WWE with the UFC to make a new $21 billion sports entertainment company.
Endeavor announced that CEO Ari Emanuel would become chief executive of the new company, which will oversee both the UFC and WWE, Mark Shapiro would become the president and chief operating officer, and Vince McMahon as executive chairman while Dana White will remain in his position as UFC president.

Not long after the merger, Paul, who has been a vocal critic of the UFC over fighter pay, took a shot at the new company.
“UFC + WWE makes too much sense. Great path to increasing fighter pay.”
