Dana White has discredited Jake Paul and his boxing career

In many interviews over the course of 2021, Dana has unleased a verbal barrage of insults at the 24-year-old boxer’s direction. He discredited his wins against retired UFC fighters and suggested he should fight someone of his own size, weight, and from his own sport. Naturally, Jake fired back at the UFC president with an elaborate response of his own.

Following his win over retired MMA fighter and wrestler. Ben Askren. He called out the MMA promotion for underpaying the fighters and ripping them off the revenue that they deserve. With an elaborated tweet, he attacked the pay structure that doesn’t benefit the fighters at all. Rumors have it that Ben earned more money with this one fight than he did across three fights with the promotion.

Jake also made tall claims that the ring girls make more money than fighters, who compete inside the octagon. This goes against everything that UFC has claimed, as fighters make the sport and they compel people to buy PPVs or the ringside tickets.
