The YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer Jake Paul recently took a dig at UFC President Dana White. The former never misses any chance to take shot at the UFC and especially White. After recent complaints from the UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, Paul sent a message to the UFC president regarding fighter pay, which he has been continuing over the last few months.
In addition to wanting to fight a parade of UFC fighters, ‘The Problem Child’ also wants to bring attention to the ongoing issues surrounding how much the fighters on the roster are compensated.
Jake Paul sends a message to Dana White
Now, with Francis Ngannou actively complaining about how much he’s getting paid, Paul has stepped in and given his thoughts once again. The social media star tweeted, showing that Ngannou is paid 500 to 600K per fight:
“give this man [Ngannou] what he wants Dana. such a f***ed up company to be apart of… I got something coming soon…”
Ngannou has shared that he will not sign a new contract with the UFC unless the new deal offers an increase in pay. Speaking to ESPN MMA, ‘The Predator’ said:
“No. I will not fight for five, six hundred thousand anymore. I mean, it’s over. It’s over. I just did this. I took this [UFC 270] fight just for a personal reason and because I want to make sure that [he sees out his current deal] regardless, even if it’s unfair. I’ve been wrongly treated.”

Speaking about Paul, he could be facing Tommy Fury next. The British boxer was scheduled to fight Paul back in December, but was forced to withdraw from the bout due to medical reasons. ‘The Problem Child’ ended up facing Tyron Woodley in a winning effort.
