UFC President Dana White came out on social media and responded to Jake Paul’s newest challenge that he posted on Twitter. Both men have now officially engaged in a dialogue after White initially challenged Paul to sign up for a two-year random steroid testing program. In turn, White would sign up for a ten-year random testing program to test for cocaine.

Jake Paul pushed aside White’s initial challenge and laid out an alternate challenge for the UFC President. Paul promised to step in the UFC’s octagon to face Jorge Masvidal so long as White met a few terms and conditions. ‘The Problem Child’ wanted White to guarantee fighters increased pay, a guarantee to fighters for annual revenue share as well as long-term healthcare.

Dana White doubles down and fires shots at Jake Paul’s manager

White was quick to respond to the new challenge posed by Jake Paul and he was even quicker to dismiss Paul’s rhetoric. He went on to address their initial challenge and then called out Jake Paul’s manager, who used to be Dana White’s accountant. White also cajoled Jake Paul to enter into the fight business and help improve the conditions of fighters himself.

“And that think you came out with today, no one on earth thinks you really wrote that. You’re too stupid. Those of you who don’t know, if you’ve ever watched one of his fights and you’ve ever seen him to the staredown, the guy that’s standing in the middle with the warlock nose and the big warlock ward on his face, apparently that’s his manager and that guy used to be an accountant for me. Let’s just say he no longer works for me and he’s a scumbag.”

“If you two think that we can do it better than we do, we’re doing this whole thing wrong, you can treat the fighters better than we do. Knock yourself out. Go start your own business, it’s easy to do. Get the warlock on it.”

Can Jake Paul sell pay-per-views by himself?

White then went on to double down on his initial challenge and called Jake Paul out for his reportedly low pay-per-view sales. ‘The Problem Child’ reportedly sold 65K PPV’s for his second fight against Tyron Woodley, a claim Paul refuted. However, White clearly doesn’t believe Paul can sell a fight by himself at this stage.

“What you and the warlock should be focused on is your business. You’re tanking. You can’t sell PPVs. You’re calling out Jorge Masvidal because he’s a pay-per-view superstar. Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor, Mike Tyson. These are all superstars, you’re not. I’m ready to roll buddy. I don’t use cocaine, do you use steroids? Let’s do this Jake.”
