YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul and Dana White have been going at it in the media for quite a while now. Both men have issued challenges to each other and fans from both in and out of the MMA space can’t seem to get enough. Very few fighters have gone head-to-head with White publicly, however ‘The Problem Child’ shows no signs of relenting.

Recently, Paul issued his own set of demands to Dana White’s initial challenge and wanted to see White pay fighters more money. He also demanded revenue sharing as well as long-term medical care for fighters in the UFC. He provided Dana White with a five-day timeline to accept the offer and dropped a reminder again that now there were only four days left.

Jake Paul then said he would comply with Dana White’s wishes to have him tested for steroids randomly. In fact, if he were to then face Jorge Masvidal in the UFC as per the agreement, he would have to be in the USADA testing pool. He happily said he would comply with White’s demands so long as everything was set.

Will Dana White accept Jake Paul’s challenge?

White has been known to be a rigid businessman who has fought off several adversaries during the early days of the UFC. In fact, it is his rough and tumble nature that made him the successful kingpin of the UFC machine. As it stands, the fans don’t expect to be seeing Dana White comply with any of Jake Paul’s demands.

White has oftentimes played off his naysayers, as this isn’t the first time he’s been criticized for underpaying the fighters. However, White has always maintained the notion that UFC fighters are being taken care of well. Not to mention, not many existing UFC fighters have come out and challenged this notion either.

However, stranger things have happened in combat sports. Dana White infamously went back on his word and co-promoted with Floyd Mayweather back in 2017 to put on a boxing bout against Conor McGregor. If the bottom dollar is just about right, fans could be surprised with Dana White’s actions towards Jake Paul’s challenge.
