YouTube personality and boxer Jake Paul has been in a war of words with Dana White for years and UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal for a few months.
After a second win over former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley, Paul offered Masvidal $5 million for a fight. During a recent interview on “The FIGHT with Teddy Atlas,” White stated that no fighter under UFC contract will be boxing Paul and issued a drug testing challenge to the 24-year old boxer.
“I got a challenge for Jake Paul,” White said.“ This guy keeps saying that I’m a coke head. He can randomly cocaine test me for the next 10 years if I can randomly steroid test him for the next two.”
On Monday, Paul kicked off the new year by responded to White’s challenge with an offer to fight in the UFC if White meets certain conditions.
“I will immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to:
- Increase minimum fighter pay to $50k (it’s 12k currently)
- Guarantee UFC fighters 50% of the UFC annual revenues ($1bn in 2021)
- Provide long term health care to all fighters (you previously said brain damage is part of the gig… Imagine if the NFL said that). There are many UFC alums who have publicly said they are suffering from brain damage.
You have 5 days to accept and to implement the above by March 31, 2022. Once implemented I will immediately retire from boxing, enter USADA and agree to a 1 fight deal with the UFC to fight weak chin Jorge Masvidal.”
Paul is undefeated in his combat sports career thus far, including two wins over Woodley and a victory over former Bellator titleholder Ben Askren.
