Jake Paul fired some major bombs at Dana White over social media. The Problem Child said he’s done more in his 15 minutes of fame than White has in his whole life. That apparently won’t stop the two sides from talking.
We previously reported how Jake Paul said that he’s talking to the UFC about securing a fight with Usman. He also threw a jab at UFC for paying ring girls more than fighters. That possible fight with the welterweight champion could be a very enticing pay-per-view main event for Triller, but Triller head Ryan Kavanaugh isn’t very happy about the situation.
While speaking to the Bloody Elbow, Kavanaugh unloaded on Dana White a bit. He also accused the UFC President of trying to steal Jake Paul from Triller.
“He’s trying to get Jake Paul to fight for the UFC now? Making him offers? Just hurting his own people and chasing ours.”
As of this writing there is no concrete proof that Dana White has made any offer to Jake Paul. Perhaps Kavanaugh knows something the rest of us don’t
Dana White knows how much money Jake Paul is worth. He sees the pay-per-view buys that Paul generates with his controversy-filled events. He also pulled out of a $2 million bet with Snoop Dogg that Paul would lose to Ben Askren, a bet White later claimed he never took.
There is always a tricky situation when contracts are involved. Jake Paul will continue cashing in and taking the best deal for his career. The chips could fall in any number of places at this point.
