Jake Paul teases an ad related to Dana White and the fighter’s salary.
Paul criticized White for not paying his fighters enough money and not providing them with medical care or benefits. This caught the attention of the UFC president, who responded to Paul in a social media video.
Most recently, UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou announced that he would no longer fight for the UFC under his current contract.
“No, I won’t fight for $500,000, $600,000 anymore,” Ngannou told ESPN. “I mean, it’s all over. This is the end. I just did it. I agreed to this fight for personal reasons and I want to make sure that no matter if it’s unfair, I was treated wrong, I can prove that I completed eight fights. But no.”
Unsurprisingly, this caught the attention of Jake Paul, who took to social media to let Dana White know he was working on something big.
“Give this man what he wants, Dana. such a fucking company that needs to be separated from … I will have something soon, ”Paul wrote on social networks.
Although many MMA fighters criticize Jake Paul, he is vocal about his desire to help fighters get more. He donated GoFundMe to former UFC fighter Sarah Alpar to help her train.
Paul also offered to retire from boxing and take part in MMA fights in the UFC if White raised the minimum wage to $50,000 per fight. However, that hasn’t happened yet, so by the looks of it, the YouTuber-turned-boxer will continue to advocate paying fighters in an attempt to get UFC fighters to make more money.
Jake Paul won a sixth-round knockout over Tyron Woodley back in December to improve his record to 5-0.
