Tate's net worth is believed to be in the ballpark of £100m after running successful business ventures with his brother, Tristan, a former professional fighter.
It isn't clear if Tate was challenging O'Malley to fight with his message, but that is unlikely given the former kickboxer weighs over 200lb and is over six feet tall, and O'Malley fights at 135lb in the UFC.
The British-American recently claimed to be the "most top man" in the world when comparing his search trend to Paul, noting that he is more "famous" than him.
"I'm top 'g', I'm the most top man in the world. If me and Jake Paul fight, I would destroy him. He knows I would destroy him, and that's fine".
Tate also admitted that he respects Paul for making a drastic career change.
"He's got enough money, and he doesn't have to do this. He's putting his reputation on the line. I know that takes balls, and I respect him for it."
