Jake Paul is already getting interest from the MMA community ... 'cause Wiz Khalifa -- who is part-owner of the Professional Fighters League -- tells TMZ Sports he'd love to sign the YouTuber-turned-fighter to the promotion!!
25-year-old Paul has flirted with making the switch from the ring to the cage recently ... in hopes of landing a fight with Jorge Masvidal-- or pretty much any other fighter in the MMA community at this point.
He seems to be serious about the switch ... and has even been spotted working on his kicks at Jay Glazer's Unbreakable gym recently, a place that Wiz has frequented over the years.
So, when we met up with Wiz during Super Bowl week, we had to ask if he thinks Jake is PFL material.
"It would be tight if he fought for PFL," Wiz said. "He's a cool guy. So, wherever he is, he's going to bring a lot of excitement."
Of course, PFL is one of the top MMA promotions in the sport ... so Wiz's co-sign is nothing to scoff at.
When we asked straight-up if he would want PFL to sign Jake, Wiz didn't mince his words.
