Jake Paul is once again in the UFC headlines. Recently, Jake was in attendance for UFC 261 where the whole crowd was seemingly upset by his presence.
As a result, an echoing roar of “F*ck Jake Paul, f*ck Jake Paul” could be heard throughout the event. Naturally, a lot of people were not happy with the Youtuber’s presence at the event. Specifically, Dana White, Daniel Cormier among many others.
After the event, Dana White made some crude comments on Triller Fight Club and Jake. As a result, Jake has fired back at Dana White and made some comments of his own. “Perhaps it is time to pay the fighters their fair share. No wonder they all want to box.”
Paul voiced his criticism of Dana White and indicated that he is paying them less than their fair share. “Why are UFC fighters so underpaid compared to boxers? Why did I earn more in my third fight than all UFC fighters in history except for Khabib and Conor? I know why…”. Moreover, he also brings up the Jon Jones vs Francis Ngannou fight.
“Dana, you say you have fights the fans want to see, so go ahead and put Jon Jones against Francis Ngannou. Pay them their share. Ten million exchanges for everyone plus PPV.” The YouTuber has been engaging in a back and forth with White for some time now.
What’s Next for Jake Paul?
Jake Paul has been pining for a fight with Conor McGregor after beating Ben Askren. However, Conor has ‘aired’ his advances and shown no interest thereafter. Naturally, Conor is focusing all his energy on his upcoming trilogy with Dustin Poirier.
Moreover, Jake has received multiple challenges from the likes of KSI, Tyron Woodley, and Mike Perry. As such, the Ohio Native will have to defeat a fighter of note to warrant a fight with McGregor.
The fighting community as a whole wants to see Paul defeat an actual fighter. Ben Askren was no challenge and cannot be regarded as a real threat. Hence, ‘The Problem Child’ will have to expand his boundaries for the next fight.
