Many combat sports ‘purists’ have often termed the events the Paul brothers compete in to be entertainment gigs rather than serious fighting competitions. UFC President Dana White is also one individual that does not take the Paul brothers seriously.

White has often taken shots at Logan and Jake Paul. The brother’s in turn, have also been vocal about the UFC President, and Jake Paul even went after the UFC President with regards to low pay for UFC fighters. Therefore, at this point, it is very clear that Dana White and Jake Paul are not fans of each other.

Now, during a recent interview with Brian Custer of the Last Stand Podcast, Paul was answering some Twitter questions by fans. During the podcast, a question regarding Dana White was directed at ‘The Problem Child.

The question was, “If Dana White starts Zuffa boxing and offers Jake a contract, will he sign it?” To this Paul was quick to respond, “Hell No.” This response from Paul makes it clear what the relationship between White and Paul is and how Paul wants nothing to with Dana White.

What to expect from the fight between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley?

Ever since Jake Paul defeated Ben Askren via a 1st round KO. People from all around the world have started noticing the fighter and taking him seriously as a competitor. However, Askren was never known for his boxing skills and therefore may believe Woodley, who is known for his striking prowess, can trouble Paul.

‘The Problem Child’ has fought in 3 fights till now and has won all and he does have good striking capabilities. However, the thing that can give the advantage to Woodley is his experience.

The veteran fighter is a former UFC champion and knows all about competing at the top level. Therefore, whatever the result may be, this fight will be the toughest of Jake Paul’s career.
