Besides, UFC President Dana White has constantly accused ‘The Problem Child’ of using steroids. The banter which began on social media took such a toll that Jake Paul agreed to enter the UFC cage with minimum pay. But he put certain conditions, like increasing fighter’s pay and testing all the UFC fighters medically. Well, White ignored it, getting busy with his back-to-back event plans for 2022.

Nevertheless, Paul doesn’t have an official fight. And he seems too adamant about getting under the UFC honcho’s skin. Despite White’s ignorance, Paul put out several tweets and is still doing the same. Recently he tweeted a humorous message and tagged himself ‘guilty’.

Jake Paul wrote, “If 1942 is steroids then yes I’m guilty.”

It’s unclear what exactly Paul meant by this statement. However, he could have possibly referred to the famous liquor product, 1942. Well, Paul was enjoying a vacation with his family. After knocking out Tyron Woodley, his third win in 2021, ‘The Problem Child’ deserved a lay-off. But on returning to action, he can come up against tougher challenges.
