Jake Paul sends shots at Dana White for defending UFC fighter pay: ‘”No major sports organization pays its athletes as poorly as Dana’

Dana White

Jake Paul took aim at Dana White after he defended the current fighter pay.

UFC fighter pay has been a hot talking point for MMA analysts and fans for a few years now. Many believe that the fighter pay is extremely too low, and despite the fact that fighters have to win their matchup to receive their full paycheck. Paul has been poking fun at White for how he pays his fighters for a few years now. He has ironically been on the frontlines of the entire debate, since it sparked up. UFC fighters, unlike many other league athletes, don’t have an athletes union. With that being said, the UFC pays less than 20% of proceeds to the fighters.

Dana White talked about fighter pay in a recent interview he did with “GQ Sports”

“You always have to have something to bitch about, I guess and fighters always want to make more money. Boxing is absolutely been destroyed because of money and all the things that go on. It’s never going to happen when I’m here, believe me, these guys get paid what they’re supposed to get paid. They eat what they kill. They get a percentage of the pay-per-view buys and the money is spread out amongst all the fighters.” (Transcribed by BJPenn.com).

Dana White urged people like Paul to start their own organization, to see how hard it is to promote and pay their fighters. here have been organizations like “Affliction that had tried to start their own MMA organization, to go toe to toe with the UFC.

Jake Paul clapped back at White on Twitter.

“No major sports organization pays its athletes as poorly as Dana White & UFC. If u don’t see that then you are one of Dana’s sheeps. They keep talking about selling out 21 events in a row but never talking about raising fighter pay, giving them healthcare & fair revenue split.” Paul said.
