TOMMY FURY has ordered Jake Paul to 'go and fight in the UFC' if he continues to call out MMA superstars.
Paul, 24, is 5-0 in his career, but yet to face an opponent with prior professional boxing experience.
Fury, 22, was due to do the honours, but was forced to pull out with a broken rib and bacterial chest infection.
So instead, ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, stepped in for a late notice rematch and was brutally knocked out in round six.
Afterwards, the YouTuber called out UFC pair Nate Diaz, 36, and Jorge Masvidal, 37, in a snub to Fury.
But the former reality TV star has called to either reschedule their grudge match- or for Paul stop calling himself a legitimate boxer.
Fury said on the MMA Hour: “The fact of the matter is there’s unfinished business here and this fight needs to take place, because how can he be serious about fighting if he’s never fought a boxer before?
“How can he be serious about this? He keeps referring to the UFC.

"If he wants to go and fight in the UFC, don’t put on a pair of boxing gloves again and go and fight in the UFC.
"Don’t call yourself a boxer if you’ve never ever fought one."
Paul has knocked out every opponent he has faced, having sparked Woodley, 39, in December, four months after initially winning on points.
It added to KO's over YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.
Fury had revealed talks to fight Paul again had started between their respected teams.
But he will not wait around forever and insisted his career is headed towards bigger and better things than just a celebrity prizefight.
If he wants to go and fight in the UFC, don’t put on a pair of boxing gloves again and go and fight in the UFC. Don’t call yourself a boxer if you’ve never ever fought one."
Fury said: “Make no mistake, that’s the fight I want next, and I’ll always be checking in with my team every single day to see where we’re up to with that.
"But there comes a time where I have my own career. My goal still isn’t changed. My goal is to be a champion in this sport.
"And believe it or not, fighting Jake Paul, it doesn’t give me that at all. Fighting Jake Paul will never make me a champion in boxing.
"So Jake Paul, yes, it’s a great fight. It’s a big fight. But it doesn’t really make me achieve my dreams.
"So at the end of the day, I’ll wait for a certain amount of time, I’ll try my best to get this fight back on track.
"You talk to everybody, this is the fight that I want. But at the end of the day, my career goes on.”
