Jake Paul and Dana White have been clashing quite a bit recently. The boxer wants to improve fighters’ access to healthcare and raise their wages. Jake Paul recently revealed his plans following his investment in the UFC.
The Problem Child is so committed to the UFC that he has begun to invest in it. Paul took to Twitter to announce that he and his business partner Geoffrey Woo have become UFC stakeholders and intend to make significant changes.
“I’ve invested in EDR (UFC) stock with my partner @geoffreywoo 2 focus on UFCs ESG standards relating to fighters. We believe EDR can drive long-term economic value by increasing UFC fighter pay & providing them healthcare. Reaching out to @EngineNo_1 to partner on this ‘endeavor.'”
Woo responded with his own statement, revealing that he and Jake are looking to change the UFC from within. While Dana will not appreciate this attempt, it is clear that Woo and Paul have given this a lot of thought.
“We believe the best way to accelerate this inevitable revolution is to lead it from within the UFC as co-owners & impact investors. We will use our investment stake to rally fans, athletes, fellow shareholders, and management to do the right thing.”
It will be interesting to see how this plays out, as Jake is fighting an uphill battle. He is a minority stakeholder, which means he will need to persuade others to listen to his point of view. To get the latest updates, Keep an eye on Thirsty.
