Dana White threatens to take legal action against Jake Paul and tells him to 'fight a f***ing boxer' instead of UFC star

04/22/2021

DANA WHITE has threatened Jake Paul with legal action if the YouTuber tries to pursue a boxing match with an active UFC fighter.

The former Disney star has campaigned for fights with Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier following his one-minute demolition of retired MMA star Ben Askren last weekend.


UFC supremo White has grown tired of seeing the social media star pursue bouts with his fighters, telling Paul via Yahoo Sports: “Why don’t you go fight a f****g boxer?"

“What the fuck do these guys keep talking to UFC guys for?

"I’m gonna have to slap them with another f****g legal letter, these fucking idiots.

"Go talk to f****g boxers. What are you doing?”

White isn't a fan of YouTubers competing as professional fighters and believes the popularity of the fights is a sign of how far boxing has fallen.

He said: “Boxing continues to go like this [points his hands downward].

"This guy [Jake Paul] is playing this thing perfectly and boxing’s in such a bad place.

"They’re doing a really good job at sucking in people to buy into this thing. Good for him."

In the build-up to Paul vs Askren, a confident White revealed he'd be willing to bet $1million on the latter beating the YouTuber turned boxer.

But the veteran promoter insists he never actually placed the bet.

He told TSN: “I don’t even want to say it. I don’t even want to say what I think happened in that fight.

“But I can tell you this, I don’t owe Snoop [Dogg] $2 million.

"I never bet – let me make it clear right here to everybody: I have never made an illegal bet, ever.

"I did not make an illegal bet on Saturday night. I did not bet $2 million with Snoop or anybody.”
