Over the past few months, Jake Paul has remained in the limelight because of his antics outside the ring. Additionally, the YouTuber turned boxer is making statements with his in-ring performances, too. With that, he’s slowly developing the art of trash-talking and is leaving no stones unturned in going after his rivals.

That said, the UFC boss, Dana White, is one of his arch-nemesis, and the duo has gone back and forth with each other multiple times. With his activities in the game, Paul has been an obvious center of attraction. But with that, he’s been on the receiving end of backlash coming from fans and combat sports personalities like Dana White.

Recently, ‘The Problem Child’ edged over White with his hilarious comments.

Taking it to his Twitter, Paul wrote, “Dana White said this morning that I’m losing my appeal and that my shelf life is very short. Because of this, I have given up my life and now am an employee of my brothers company – Maverick Enterprises. Thank you all, it’s been a fun journey.”

On August 29th, Jake Paul will meet the ex-UFC elite, Tyron Woodley, in a boxing war. As Woodley is one supremely experienced combat sports athlete, fans expect it to be Paul’s toughest challenge.

As ‘The Problem Child’ has a knack for facing UFC stars, he can hit at Dana White with his performances. Now, as he’s lined up to face another UFC fighter, Paul will look to make the most out of this opportunity to have more chances to mock the UFC supremo.
