Paul has been at social media loggerheads with the UFC President for quite a while now. He has made himself a leader of fighters who are paid less by the maverick octagon boss.

While speaking with the media, one interviewer asked him if he wants to invite Dana White to his fight. ‘The Troubled Child’ gave a detailed answer to this question.

“I don’t think Dana White would come, man,” Jake told the media. “We go back and forth at the end of the day. He is always talking about me. I’m always talking about him. He is trying to discredit what I’m doing. One moment he loves Tyron Woodley, and he is a 5-time UFC champion. Dana White is saying he is the greatest welterweight ever.

“And then boom, 12 months later, he s*cks, Jake Paul is fighting him bla bla bla. So, he is just trying to discredit anything that I do. That’s what I would do if I’m in his position. He is a smart guy,” he added.

Paul gave an interesting answer when the interviewer asked how his rivalry with Dana White will end. “I think it ends with me running into him at a club in Vegas and knocking him the f*ck out,” he added.

How Jake Paul has fared in his brief career?

Paul has had a brief but eventful career so far. The social media sensation has fought 3 matches in his professional career. Although he hasn’t faced a genuine boxing prizefighter, he still has a big win over former MMA champ, Ben Askren.

He started his professional career with a match against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib in January 2020. ‘The Troubled Child’ defeated the latter via TKO in 2:18 minutes into round 1. He then fought ex-NBA star Nate Robinson on November 28. The YouTuber defeated him via KO in round 1 as well.

But it won’t be a straightforward task against Woodley. Unlike his previous opponents, Woodley is a genuine prizefighter. It was not so long ago that he left the UFC, so Jake knows he has a task at hand.
