For a long time now Jake Paul has been fighting for the rights of UFC fighters when it comes to getting paid a fair wage for their efforts. Jake Paul had previously blasted Dana White over UFC not paying their fighters properly. It seems Jake Paul has clowned Dana White once again, this time over UFC jacking up their price.
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.
Jake Paul has heavily criticized Dana White over UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou’s current contract situation in the UFC. The Problem Child went all out to promote an anti-Dana White hashtag.
While speaking with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith on his show First Take, Jake Paul revealed that he wants to create a fighters union for MMA in order to make sure they all get paid fairly.
It’s really about the fighters. I’ve been in the gym, and I’ve seen how hard these guys work and how mistreated they are and how underpaid all of them are. So it’s really about fighter pay and getting them healthcare, poking the bear, and disrupting his whole entire business. I want to create a fighters’ union. This is my goal to really impact the whole entire sport, both MMA and boxing, and leave an everlasting stamp. I just so happen to not be beholden to anybody. A lot of these UFC fighters they are beholden to Dana White. They can’t speak out against him, so I’m using my platform because I’m one of the very few people who actually can. I’ll say whatever. I’ll speak the truth. I’m doing what my responsibility is as a fighter and as someone who cares about other fighters.”
Jake Paul even recently dropped a brutal diss track on Dana White. It remains to be seen whether he will be able to make a fighters union for MMA or not in the future.
