Jake Paul's promotion label have denied that they have received an offer from Khabib Nurmagomedov for the YouTube star to compete in Eagles FC.
Paul has been training in MMA as he continues to hint at a switch from the iron square to the cage after his successful exploits last year.
Retired star Nurmagomedov claimed that he had made a contract offer to Paul for the rising star to compete in his MMA promotion label.
However Most Valuable Promotions confirmed they had received a number of other offers, posting on Instagram : "We spit facts only. MVP has received multiple offers for Mr Paul to compete in MMA. Eagles FC is not one of them as of today."
Paul has been subject to heavy interest since announcing he is training in MMA with a plan to compete in the sport after previous crossover bouts.
He previously suggested he would like to train with the Russian star at the American Kickboxing Academy with his coach Javier Mendez for his potential MMA debut.
However Mendez immediately debunked Paul's theory pointing out that no contact had been made in addition to a vote being required for Paul to train at the gym.
Paul previously posted a video of his MMA training where fans questioned his kicking technique.
MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz has joined fans in casting doubts on Paul's future MMA career pointing out his lack of experience compared to other opponents.
“I don’t know if Jake Paul is ready to come fight some of these guys," Abdelaziz told Yahoo Sports.

"Listen, at the end of the day, Khabib is not into these jokes and pranks; all this kind of stuff. If you think you’re a real fighter and you for real, you wanna come here, you're going to fight.
"But if you think you’re going to get feed up old, washed-up fighters – and somebody can’t wrestle, can’t grapple – it’s wrong. "But at the end of the day, it’s a business. Jake Paul is a big star. They say he’s a big star.
"I don’t know, like, some people said he had big numbers, some people – you know, his YouTube number is huge. I don’t really have nothing personal against him.”
Nurmagomedov is the latest to show interest in staging Paul's MMA career with UFC president Dana White uninterested as their feud continues.
Bellator is another promotion label alongside PFL that have shown interest in hosting Paul as a fighter with CEO Scott Coker keen to use his profile alongside experienced former UFC fighters.
“If [Jake Paul wants] to come into MMA, we would gladly do it. Think about this: He’s not saying, ‘I’m going to go train here. I’m going to go train there,'" Coker told MMA Junkie.
"He’s going to come to one of the best gyms in the planet, where Khabib is, where Daniel Cormier is still training, where Cain Velasquez is teaching there now.
"This guy is just going to get better and better and better. The days of him fighting basketball players or whatever, those days are over.”
