UFC President Dana White didn’t mince words when he spoke to YouTuber, who became boxer Jake Paul, as their feud continues.
Paul has been drawing attention in the fighting world in recent months after victories in the ring over veteran NBA star Nate Robinson, and more recently a first-round hiatus against retired UFC fighter Ben Askren.
Now that everyone has their own take on Paul’s moves in the boxing game, the outspoken YouTube star has had some social media scraps with White.

Paul has been drawing attention in the fighting world in recent months after beating Ben Askren
The UFC boss bet $ 1 million that Askren would beat Paul in their recent boxing match, and while a bet was never formally made, it was the latter to emerge emphatically as the best.
Since his win, Paul has continued to agitate professional fighters in both the boxing and MMA world and most recently faced UFC legend Daniel Cormier.
He later took to Twitter to claim that White isn’t paying his UFC fighters enough to step into the octagon, and he responded by giving him a warning.

‘I hate the dildos that come in here and say,’ Hey, pay Jake Paul ‘. I hate them more than I hate Jake Paul, ”White said FightHype.com
“Look, the kid makes money and makes people worry. He makes people give as a ***. I don’t hate the kid, I know people are very excited about the day he gets cut and knocked out.
‘It’s coming. His 15 minutes are almost over, but the boy is going to make some money. Good for him. ‘
This isn’t the first time White has elaborated on Paul’s recent impact on the fight scene.
The 24-year-old American YouTuber claimed the fight with Askren generated 1.5 million pay-per-view purchases, but the UFC supremo didn’t buy it.

Askren made a flat fee of $ 500,000 for the fight, plus his share of the PPV, with a host of MMA fighters now calling Paul up for a boxing match.
White had his take on Paul’s boxing career after Kamaru Usman knocked out Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261, before wondering if the Askren fight really generated the numbers that Paul claims.
‘There is a market for that. That’s not what I do, ”White said. “People want to see this kid going to make a few bucks before this ride is over, and that’s just not what I’m doing.
And the numbers you hear are full s ***, they are full s ***. They didn’t pull numbers like that at all, not even close. ‘
