Recently, ‘The Problem Child’ took a jibe at White and hit massive verbal blows at him.

The retired UFC fighter, Jimi Manuwa, shared a video clip of Paul on his official Twitter handle. Here, the latter said, “There’s a movement, moving forward, that is gonna show that fighters should be getting paid more. It’s unfair that the UFC fighters don’t have fair pay. Out of all the sports, the percentage that the owners get vs the athlete, they’re the lowest.”

“It’s just like music labels, same thing these artists are getting owned and they get locked in these s***ty contracts and they don’t know what to do. So f*** that s***, f*** Dana White,”

‘The Problem Child’ felt that the heavy war between Francis Ngannou vs Jon Jones should happen. He asked the UFC supremo to pay them $10 million and consequently make this bout happen.

This is not the first time when the 3-0 boxer has gone all guns blazing against Dana White. In the past too, he has never spared a chance to hit at the former for obvious reasons. Moving further, Paul will now lock horns with the former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley in a prolific boxing bout.

Both the fighters are expected to bag cosmic paycheck on fight night. And this will only make Paul’s case strong.

Can Jake Paul help UFC fighters increase their pay in the coming time?

Jake Paul is no less than a brand in the dynamic boxing world. Over the past few months, he’s asserted his wish to fight the biggest of UFC fighters, and consequently giving them a paycheck of their life.

With that approach, he’s currently going super strong and with his above comments, it’s clear ‘The Problem Child’ wants fighters to be the biggest earners in the fight game.

It’ll be interesting to see if other fighters like Jimi Manuwa join his movement, and subsequently bring in a movement in favor of fighters.

What do you draw off ‘The Problem Child’s comments?
