UFC President Dana White has once again hit back at YouTuber Jake Paul. Previously, Paul voiced his criticism of Dana White and indicated that he is paying them less than their fair share.
White has been engaging in a back and forth with the YouTuber for some time now. Reportedly, Dana is growing increasingly ill-tempered at the YouTuber’s calls for UFC fighters to box him. Naturally, White wants Jake Paul as far away from his business as possible.
At the UFC 261 post-fight press conference, White spoke about if he would consider Jake Paul in the UFC. “You’re getting me talking about this f***ing guy again”. Moreover, he made it very clear that Jake Paul will never be “fighting in the UFC”.
Dana White pays his ring girls more than his fighters🙃🤡

As a result, Jake hit back at Dana on Twitter saying, “Dana White pays his ring girls more than his fighters”. Whilst the two keep going at it in the media, it appears that the issue will not be solved any time soon.
Additionally, White has been very vocal about Paul and his associations with Triller Fight Club. “He’s getting hand-picked opponents and God knows what else is going with that whole f***ing thing”, he says. Safe to say, Dana remains unimpressed with Jake and Triller Fight Club.
Why Is Dana White not Fond of Jake Paul?
Whilst Jake Paul is currently 3-0 as a professional boxer, Dana feels that Jake Paul is simply doing publicity stunts and gimmicks. Following his first-round TKO over Ben Askren, Paul became heavily entangled with the UFC.
Most notably, the Ohio native has drawn the attention of Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, and Tyron Woodley. However, it appears that he will once again pick a safe opponent to prolong his streak and continue to taunt the UFC.
Eventually, Paul sees himself fighting Conor McGregor, an idea White firmly looks down upon. Moreover, the fighting community as a whole wants to see Paul defeat an actual fighter, something Dana is sure he cannot do.
