The war of words between members of the combat sports community, particularly MMA, and Jake Paul might be reaching critical mass. During the post UFC 261 presser Dana White was asked about Jake Paul and his boxing exploits.
“Do you know what would happen to this guy [in the UFC]? He ain’t fighting in the UFC. He’s getting handpicked opponents, and God knows what else is going on with that whole fucking thing.
There’s a market for that. That is not what I do. That’s not what I do. People want to see that, and it’s great, and this kid is going to make a couple bucks before this ride is over. It’s just not what I do. What I do happened tonight. What happened tonight is, we sold this place out and it was packed, and the numbers that you’re hearing [Triller] did, they’re full of shit. They’re full of shit, ok? They didn’t pull those numbers at all, not even fucking close.”Dana White, UFC 261 Presser, via Yahoo Sports
Jake Paul heard White’s comments and took to Twitter to respond.
Buckle up folks! This is gonna get good.
