Jake Paul took to Twitter to support the UFC heavyweight champion. ‘The Problem Child’ wrote, “Francis Ngannou deserves much better than the lies and disrespect Dana White has shown him and his manager. It’s time for everyone to say F**k Dana White and support the men and women who put their bodies at risk to make him fat and rich. #F**kDana” 

‘The Problem Child’ has frequently clashed with UFC supremo Dana White, but fighter pay remains the biggest and the most heated point of verbal exchange between the two.

Paul, who always looks for ways to get into White’s head, used this opportunity well to push his agenda.

What did Francis Ngannou comment on fighter pay and why is Jake Paul entering the picture?
