Paul Felder appeared on the latest episode of MMA Junkie Radio.

Speaking to host George Garcia, the UFC colour commentator ruled out fighting the Paul Brothers for any amount of money.

"Hell no. No, see now like at least in MMA, you know, there is the Diaz brothers, especially Nate nowadays and Connor and these big money fights that I'm like, all right, these are the guys that I've watched and respected as MMA fighters. I'm not going and fighting a Youtuber, no matter how much he's gonna pay me. Because it's just, you are just promoting the wrong thing, right? Do I am, am I interested in, do I see all that crap? Yeah, Of course, I cheer all those guys on"

Felder concluded his interview by adding he loves his broadcasting job and feels commentating has eased his post-fighting transition.

Paul Felder's last entry to the octagon as a fighter

UFC lightweight Paul Felder announced his retirement during the live broadcast of UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt. Felder last fought in the octagon in November 2020, when he faced former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.

Felder first announced his retirement following a contentious split-decision loss to Dan Hooker in February 2020. 'The Irish Dragon', however, accepted the dos Anjos fight later that year on 5-days' notice.

For their outstanding performance, both Felder and dos Anjos received the 'Fight of the Night' bonus. The combat sports world praised 'The Irish Dragon' for giving a competitive battle on short notice.

Official: Rafael dos Anjos def Paul Felder via SD (47-48, 50-45 X 2).That judge who scored it 48-47 should not judge another UFC fight for a very long time.
