UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic has warned YouTube sensations Logan Paul and brother Jake not to “bite off more than you can chew”.
The siblings have entered into the world of professional boxing recently with Logan set to take on Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout.
Younger brother Jake is 2-0 having knocked out NBA veteran Nate Robinson in two rounds in his last bout.
MMA veteran Ben Askren has been named as a potential future opponent for Jake with the two often calling out big stars.
And Miocic has warned the pair they could get seriously hurt should they take on the wrong opponent.
“I mean, they say social media is a motherf****r,” Miocic told The Pat McAfee Show .
“They’re doing it right, it’s helping boxing, but also it’s helping everything because they’re calling UFC fighters out, too. Or the Bellator guys.
“Don’t bite off more than you can chew. I mean, yes, you may be a tough guy, but Askren has been in some scraps. He’s been around, you know, fighting and wrestling and all that.

“I tell people like, you get into a fight on the streets – look at his ears first. If the dude’s ears are cauliflowers, you walk away.
“I wish them all the best. I understand why they’re doing it, it’s all about the money. But at the same time, don’t bite off more than you can chew.”
Jake Paul has regularly called out Miocic’s fellow UFC star Conor McGregor, being confident he can beat the Irishman.
Jake had said: “MMA, he’s the GOAT. MMA, he would kill me in a minute.

“Put me in a boxing ring with him, and it’s going to be a good fight… I think I’ll come out on top.
“He’s 5’9, and I’m 6’1. He’s 170lb, and I’m 210lb. There’s a size advantage that people aren’t factoring in there.
“Look, at the end of the day, it’s entertainment, right? Boxing is a business disguised as a sport.
“That’s what a lot of people don’t understand. They focus too much on the sport aspect of it.”
