Jake Paul slams Dana White over fighter pay AGAIN after controversial UFC pay-per-view price hike is announced

JAKE PAUL has once again taken aim at Dana White over fighter pay following the price increase of UFC pay-per-view events.

The YouTuber turned boxer has hit out at the UFC's wage structure on a number of occasions over the last six months, with his rants including personal attacks on White.


And The Problem Child has put the veteran promoter back in his crosshairs after it was announced that UFC pay-per-views have increased from £51.48 ($69.99) to £55.19 ($74.99).

In a tweet including a recent interview in which White claimed the UFC had another record year, Paul wrote: "'Best year we ever had. Sponsorship is through the roof.

"'Social media, our numbers on PPV, our numbers on television, arena records. This business is on fire.'

"Also Dana White: We are again raising PPV prices and saying FU to fans and fighters."

Paul's latest dig at the UFC supremo comes less than a week after he told him to pay his fighters a minimum of $36,785 ($50,000) per fight.

He told White: "You are one of the most selfish capitalistic motherf**kers that I've ever seen. Everybody else needs you, Dana.

"I'm the only person that doesn't need you and I don't give a f**k about you.

"But all these people, all your fighters, all of them, they can't say s**t cause you'll just bench them.

"You met your maker, I'm not gonna stop. Welcome to the show, ladies and gentlemen.

"The bottom line, Dana, is that you won't add health care for your fighters because you don't give a f**k about them and you're too much of a greedy b***h 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."

White has yet to respond to Paul's latest taunts, the first of which was prompted by the MMA mogul's desire to 'steroid test' the former Disney star for the next two years.

He said: "You publicly stated that I use cocaine. I do not.

"So I told you, you could randomly cocaine test me for the next 10 years.

"I believe that you’re a cheater and I believe that you use steroids, so I want to randomly steroid test you for the next two years."

Paul has vehemently denied ever taking any performance-enhancing drugs and has not failed any of the tests administered to him.

SunSport exclusively revealed the 24-year-old's pre-fight drug screening before his rematch with Tyron Woodley was 'negative results for all prohibited substances.'
