Paul recently took the feud ahead and proposed a challenge to Dana White. The challenge included the UFC President increasing the minimum pay per fight of fighters and giving them a part of the annual revenue. In turn, he promised to retire from boxing and sign a one-fight UFC contract to take on Jorge Masvidal.

White didn’t bother replying to the challenge and berated Paul and his manager. This led to ‘The Problem Child’ releasing another video and calling him an unhappy billionaire. And according to Brendan Schaub, White is threatened by him. During a recent episode of The Schaub Show, he talked about how the undefeated boxer has flipped the fight game.

He said, “Say what you want about Jake Paul, but he has taken the fight game (and) flipped it on his head. Dana is coming after him – listen, Dana only goes after people that he’s threatened by.”

“He has all the money in the world, so when you threaten his business model, which Jake Paul is doing – he’s completely flipped the game. He’s the chink in their armor. He’s a cheat code in this fight game,” he added.

Lots of MMA fighters are looking to make a switch to boxing and the ones that have done so have made good money.
