Dana White Says Jake Paul’s Boxing Career Will Be ‘Very F—ing Short’
As much as Jake Paul is in headlines, UFC President Dana White is getting thrown questions about the Youtuber-turned-boxer.
Paul – who recently improved to 4-0 in his boxing career – has made public call outs of White, criticizing him for not paying UFC fighters what they deserve. White said Paul’s shots at him is all “part of the business,” and is the way to get noticed.
“You want to stir up some sh–t? Start a fight with me,” White said. “That’s how you do it.”
Despite Paul’s unbeaten boxing record, he has yet to face a professional boxer.
He’s earned wins over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, Youtuber AnEsonGib, former NBA star Nate Robinson and former UFC veteran Ben Askren.
White said he was impressed that Paul knocked out Askren with one punch – as Askren should’ve done better, he said – but the Youtuber needs to face a real boxer to show his talent.
“In the gym, he trains with plenty of boxers. So there’s a reason he’s not fighting boxers. He wants to keep fighting these retired UFC f——- wrestlers,” he added.
At the end of the day, Paul is just trying make money, White said. But he doesn’t think he’ll last long.
“His shelf life is very f——- short,” White added.
