Jake Paul became the unexpected champion when it comes to UFC fighters receiving fair pay for risking their lives in every fight. Jon Jones, in particular, has demanded he get paid a proper amount of money to compete in big fights. Jake Paul had previously blasted Dana White over UFC not paying their fighters properly.
For months now Jake Paul has taken shots at Dana White and there are no signs of him stopping. Dana White recently fired back at Jake Paul by stating that Paul is only starting a fight with him to get noticed and that he has a short shelf life. Paul would then clown Dana White in a huge way.
While speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Dana White gave props to Jake Paul for his contributions to Showtime Boxing and stated that they should pay Paul more money for what he has done for the promotion.
“Showtime needs f*****g Jake Paul. I mean their f*****g fights are pulling 70,000 viewers for Christ’s sake. i could tak a picture of my f*****g big toe and put it on Instagram and more people will see that than a Showtime fight, okay? They need Jake Paul. So, whatever they’re f*****g paying him, it’s probably not enough. They probably need to pay him more, they need that f*****g guy. [That is] number one, number two, he is doing all the right things he can do to try to make some money before he gets clipped okay? and It’s just not what I do.”
Jake Paul also recently stated that he promised to leave Dana White alone forever if Jorge Masvidal beats him in a boxing match. We will have to wait and see if Jake Paul and Jorge Masvidal will ever square off against each other in a boxing match as that would be something fans want to see.
