The ongoing feud between the UFC and Jake Paul has reached yet another level. Jake Paul and Dana White, who are not exactly on the best of terms, have been going at each other since January 2021. They have openly expressed their hate for each other.
Last month, Paul fought Woodley in an eight-round fight, winning via split decision. The former UFC champion became the 2nd UFC fighter in Paul’s list of in-ring victims. Now, after beating Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley, Jake wants to fight more UFC fighters in the ring.
Hence, the undefeated ‘Problem Child’ Jake Paul shifted his focus from a rematch against Woodley to another UFC fighter, Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal. Paul and Masvidal met and trained together previously. However, after the YouTuber beat Tyron Woodley, Masvidal turned from friend to foe.
I’m sorry that you have accepted that you are owned by Dana White and have to be loaned out, like a car. You and your fellow fighters deserve better. https://t.co/vNLTzhnwYR

After Dana White clarified that he would not let Masvidal fight Paul, ‘The Problem Child’ shifted his focus to the fourth-ranked fighter in the middleweight division, Derek Brunson.
Neither the UFC President, Dana White, nor Derek Brunson, has reacted to the tweet yet. However, whether the fight takes place or not is up to Dana White, who has made it very clear that he will not let any UFC fighter step into the boxing ring against the 24-year-old Paul.
Dana White wants Jake Paul to fight someone his own size
Dana White gave Jake Paul an earful during the press conference at the Dana White’s Contender Series. Following the episode, the reporter asked Dana about the whole Jake Paul situation when ‘The Problem Child’ called out ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal.
DANA WHITE RANT AHEAD
The UFC president took some time to give Anderson Silva some serious credit for the legend’s success in boxing since leaving the UFC, and called for a certain YouTuber to step in there with the Spider.

Dana White replied, saying, “Go fight somebody your own size. If you look at Jake Paul’s history, Jake Paul either fights basketball players who have never fought, or he wants to fight washed-up older guys who haven’t won fights in years.”
While Brunson is a departure from these opponents, he isn’t exactly known for his boxing, even in his UFC fights. However, it will be interesting to see what Brunson or Dana White say in response to Jake Paul’s comment.
