Well-known video blogger and aspiring boxer Jake Paul believes that due to his criticism of UFC President Dana White because of the low fees of fighters, he was able to get into his head.
“The UFC fighters can’t talk about it [fighter pay]. They can’t advocate for fighter pay because Dana White will just shut them… I see how hard fighting is, I see how hard these fighters work and the fact that it’s [fighter pay] so skewed versus any other sport, and it’s the most dangerous sport out of all of them, there needs to be a change there and you know, I’m actually starting to affect Dana White’s business,” said Jake Paul in his interview.
The 24-year-old then commented on his feud with the UFC president, saying that he is inside White’s head.
“He [Dana White] talks about me way more than I talk about him. A lot of times, I’ll just be minding my business and then all of a sudden, there’s like a whole new interview that comes out where he’s talking about me. So, you know, I’m definitely in his head because before, when we were talking, it was kinda, you know, just random back-and-forth, but now I’m actually, you know, affecting his business and they don’t like that. Those are big-wig guys with a lot of power, who are very greedy and they will do anything to get to the top, and they have gotten to the top, but they want more, they always want more.”
