The rivalry between Jake Paul and Dana White escalated when the latter placed a $1 million bet on Paul’s last boxing fight with Ben Askren.

Yet when the actual fight took place, Jake Paul turned the tables by battering ‘Funky’ within the first round. Moreover, after this fight, the UFC boss denied placing any bets on the Askren vs Paul encounter.

This left Paul livid with White, and since then he hasn’t spared a chance to take a dig at him.
