Jake Paul has taken every opportunity to call out Dana White and fighters from the UFC, and White isn’t too pleased with Paul’s actions. In fact, White came out with a response for Jake Paul. He issued a challenge to Jake Paul and expressed a desire to test him for steroids over the next two years.

White has clearly heard the jabs Jake Paul has been throwing his way and both men have formed a disdain for each other. Paul even went after Dana White during the post-fight press conference of his recent fight against Tyron Woodley.

Their first fight back in late August was a much-talked-about affair since Paul had finally accepted a real step-up in competition. Despite leaving the UFC on a four-fight skid, Tyron Woodley was still known to possess dangerous knockout out power.

However, the second fight lacked in action; even when compared to the fairly slow-paced clash that was their first fight. Both men were hesitant to throw shots and continuously kept on clinching. Notably, even the commentary team had something to say about how slowly paced the fight truly was.

‘The Problem Child’ managed to turn the tide of the contest in round six, however, as he landed the fight-ending punch. Despite Woodley seemingly watching the punch in real time, he fell for the fake and dropped his guard. The resultant blow was devastating and allowed Jake Paul to go 2-0 against a former UFC champion.
