Ahead of his professional boxing return against former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley this weekend, Jake Paul has claimed promotional president, Dana White has issues with both cocaine and prostitutes.
Paul, who headlines a Showtime Boxing event in Miami, Florida – was originally slated to meet with the 7-0 Tommy Fury this weekend, until a rib injury and cold ruled the Manchester native from the boxing grudge match.
In Fury’s place steps former UFC welterweight champion, Woodley, who secures a rematch with Ohio native, Paul following their initial tangle back in August, where the latter retained his undefeated record courtesy of a split decision win.
The 4-0 Paul has had a long-standing rivalry with UFC leader, the aforenoted, White, questioning the organizational president on many issues under his promotion’s banner – most notably the issue of fighter pay.
Paul had previously questioned why high-level UFC fighters and champions were earning considerably less money than their professional boxing counterparts, as well as donating money to now-promotional alum, Sarah Alpar’s GoFundMe page before he release from the organization.
Jake Paul claims UFC president, Dana White has issues with ‘cocaine and hookers’
In his latest swipe at White, however, Paul had alleged that the Connecticut-born promoter has issues involving cocaine abuse and prostitution whilst discussing a potential fight with former two-weight UFC champion, Conor McGregor.
“I think Dana White is the obstacle, number one,” Jake Paul told In Depth host, Graham Bensinger. “You know, if Dana would let Conor (McGregor) out of his contract, to set up a boxing match, I think that’s what is needed to make it happen. And I think that will – I think that will happen. If Conor is, you know, just gonna continue to lose fights – he’s lost – he’s 1-4 in the past five years. So if he’s gonna continue to lose, there’s not much Dana’s gonna be able to do with him anyway. So, cash him out one more time. …”
“I think it’s (a feud) personal for him (Dana White),” Jake Paul said. “Because, he’s this old guy, who clearly is this control freak. And I’m the only one that’s able to get under his skin…. Yeah, the coke like, smeared across my face – and the coke bag says ‘UFC – Unlimited Free Cocaine’ because, I mean, everyone knows about Dana’s coke issue and all the hookers and sh*t. I’m just a young kid having fun….”
