The Jake Paul-Dana White back-and-forth continues on social media. On Sunday, Paul posted a video response to White, who a day prior had again challenged Paul to undergo steroid testing for two years.
Paul has made a career over the past 12 months of boxing former UFC stars, beating Ben Askren, and Tyron Woodley twice. He has also drawn UFC President White into his crosshairs, frequently criticizing White and the promotion for underpaying fighters. It’s his accusation that White uses cocaine, however, that appears to have gotten under the UFC exec’s skin, leading to White repeatedly calling for Paul to be drug tested.
After White reiterated his drug testing challenge on Saturday — he would voluntarily be tested for cocaine for ten years if Paul was drug tested for two — Paul stated that he had accepted.
“Dana, I accepted every part of your challenge. I said I would fight Masvidal in MMA. Steroid test me whenever the f*ck you want. It is two weeks after my fight, and I am a fat b*tch,” Paul stated in the video, which he later revealed was filmed during his vacation in St. Barts. “I don’t do steroids, and I take it as a compliment, because there is no other excuse to me knocking out all of your champions than ‘this kid does steroids.’ Look at me, look at that, a fat b*tch.”
“If you steroid test me, then I want to steroid test everyone of your fighters,” Paul added. “You won’t do it though.”
Paul apparently isn’t aware that all UFC fighters are tested under USADA regardless. He went on to say that White was “jealous,” in a video peppered with insults and comparisons of social media prowess.
“You’re just a jealous, ugly f*ck. You don’t know what true happiness is,” exclaimed Paul. “You’re the definition of a f*cking unhappy billionaire who thought that money was going to make their lives better. I feel bad for you.”
Paul also took offence to White calling his manager, Nakisa Bidarian, an accountant — noting that Bidarian is the former UFC CFO who helped sell the company to Endeavour for four billion dollars.
He went on to accuse Dana White of failing to address the specific points of a video he had posted Saturday, demanding the UFC increase it’s minimum wage to $50,000, implement a 50% revenue share with fighters, and provide long term health care for athletes.
“Long story short, you address nothing that I said. I accepted your challenge. I said I would fight MMA. I said that I would retire from boxing and you avoided all of that sh*t,” stated Paul. “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 and you are one of the most selfish, capitalistic motherf*ckers that I’ve ever seen and everybody else needs you, Dana. I’m the only person that doesn’t need you and I don’t give a f*ck about you but all these people, all your fighters, all of them, they can’t say sh*t ‘cause you’ll just bench them. You met your maker. I’m not gonna stop. Welcome to the show, ladies and gentlemen.”
Paul last competed on December 18, 2021 when he knocked out former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley in the sixth round of an otherwise dull affair. The 24-year old rose to prominence on video sharing site Vine, and later Youtube, and did two-year stint on Disney TV series Bizaardvark before trying his hand at boxing. He’s posted a 5-0 record to date, competing entirely against other non-boxers.
