Dana White: I Would Never Do Business With Jake & Logan Paul
UFC President Dana White insists he won’t be getting into the Jake and Logan Paul business.
The Paul brothers are well-known Internet celebrities. The two have been diving into the world of boxing. Jake has a pro record of 3-0 with wins over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA star Nate Robinson, and former Bellator & ONE Championship titleholder Ben Askren. Logan is 0-1 as a pro with the loss coming against another YouTuber, KSI.
During an interview with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, White made it clear that he has no plans of doing business with the Paul brothers.
“First of all, I would never do business with those guys, just no. No, this is not what we do. I’m not gonna [expletive] loan them a guy for [expletive] what? There’s no way. You got plenty of [expletive] goofballs out there that you can muster up to get in there and play these games that these guys are playing. Yeah, I’m not your guy.”
White went on to say that he finds Paul’s TKO win over Askren to be a bit fishy.
“Listen, you cannot deny the fact that this kid has inserted himself into the conversation with real guys. This guy has got three fights, and I gotta tell you that I don’t know if I truly believe the Ben Askren thing. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around that.
“Let’s see how long it takes before this kid’s 15 minutes are up, but they are being smart. They are keeping him away from anybody that could actually really do damage. I don’t know. The Ben Askren thing still blows my mind.”
