The war of words between Jake Paul and UFC president Dana White continues.
Sunday, Paul – cup and cigar in hand – posted a video from the beach on Saint Barthélemy, a Caribbean Island. In the video, Paul responded to White’s recent drug-testing challenge, but looped back around to criticize the UFC boss once again for the worldwide leading MMA promotion’s treatment of fighters.
“Dana, I accepted every part of your challenge,” Paul said. “I said I would fight (Jorge) Masvidal in MMA. Steroid test me whenever the f*ck you want. It is two weeks after my fight and I’m a fat b—-. I don’t do steroids and I take it as a compliment because there’s no other excuse to me knocking out all of your champions than, ‘This kid does steroids.’ Look at me (now). Look at that. (I’m) a fat b—-. If you steroid test me, then I want to steroid test every one of your fighters. You won’t want to do it, though, will you?”
Since he delved into the combat sports world in 2020, Paul and White have had numerous spats. However, the frequency has increased in recent months. White recently challenged Paul to go drug-test-for-drug-test in which the UFC president would be tested for cocaine while the YouTuber-turned-boxer partook in steroid testing.
Saturday, Paul responded and said he would enter the USADA testing program, walk away from boxing and head to the UFC if terms and conditions were met. The terms included an increase in minimum fighter pay and long-term health care.
“Long story short, you addressed nothing that I said,” Paul said in his video. “I said I would fight MMA. I said that I would retire from boxing and you avoided all of that s—. … It shows that you are in a corner. You’re a dog in a corner trying to fight to save his whole company and the embarrassment that I’ve put you through. Everybody sees it and what you can’t accept or love or appreciate is that I’m trying to change the sport forever. You are one of the most selfish, capitalistic motherf—ers that I’ve ever seen.
“Everybody else needs you, Dana. I’m the only person who doesn’t need you. I don’t give a f— about you, but all these people, all of your fighters, they can’t say s— because you’ll just bench them. You’ve met your maker. I’m not going to stop. Welcome to the show, ladies and gentlemen. The bottom line, Dana, is that you won’t add healthcare because you don’t give a f— about them. And you’re too much of a greedy b—- to pay your minimum fighter more than $12,000 for risking their lives. It’s what a janitor makes. You need to pay them $50,000, Dana. Stop avoiding my points.”
Paul also took exception with White’s comment that Masvidal was a bigger pay-per-view draw than him and pointed to the difference in recent social media stats.
“You say Masvidal is a pay-per-view superstar,” Paul said. “Let’s go to his last Instagram post. (It has) 5,000 likes or 10,000 likes or some s—. Do you realize that my mom, Pam, gets more likes than your pay-per-view ‘superstars’? Men lie. Women lie. Dana White lies. Numbers don’t. You want to talk s— about my manager (Nakisa Bidarian), who was the CFO of your company, that helped you sell it to Endeavor for $4 million? You’re just a jealous, ugly f—. You don’t know what true happiness is. You are the definition of a f—ing unhappy billionaire who thought that money would make their lives better. I feel bad for you.”
Paul (5-0) does not currently have his next boxing match on the books. White kicks off the UFC’s 2022 schedule Jan. 15 in Las Vegas.
