Jake Paul greatly escalated his war of words with UFC President Dana White. The YouTuber-turned-boxer issued an ultimatum to White, offering to “retire” if White is willing to meet a few conditions.

Paul’s demands for Dana White came, predictably, through Twitter, early in the morning of January 2. He demanded that Dana White improve the working conditions of fighters on the UFC roster, including providing health care. Jake Paul’s event went so far as to call himself a fighters’ rights advocate.

Jake Paul offers to quit boxing with Dana White and fight Masvidal in MMA in New Year’s Ultimatum

Jake Paul’s list of demands is below: “Happy New Year Dana White. Here’s a real challenge for you… I’ll stop boxing immediately and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to:

1) Increase min fighter pay per fight to $50K (it’s now $12K)

2) Guarantee UFC fighters 50% of the UFC’s annual revenue ($1 billion in 2021)

3) Provide long-term health care to all fighters (you said earlier that brain damage is part of the gig…imagine the NFL said that). There are many UFC alums who have publicly said they suffer from brain damage

You have 5 days to accept and implement the above by March 31, 2022. Once implemented I will immediately stop boxing, go to USADA and agree to a 1 fight deal with UFC to fight weak chin Jorge

To all UFC fighters: Time to take a stand and create value for yourself and your peers. You deserve a higher wage, you deserve long-term care and above all you deserve freedom. Support each other. I’m not your enemy, I’m your lawyer… who selfishly wants to take out some of you to make a big bank”

Jake Paul recently improved his pro boxing record to 4-0 with a knockout win over Tyron Woodley. Woodley intervened at the last minute to replace Paul’s initially scheduled opponent, Tommy Fury, but the former UFC welterweight champion succumbed to a vicious right hook in the sixth round of their rematch.

Jake Paul has yet to box a professional boxer. Instead, he prefers calling retired or semi-retired UFC fighters into lower weight classes. Paul made it a habit to lure Dana White, and it’s extremely unlikely that this ultimatum will lead to anything for Jake Paul.

The issue of fighters’ pay remains controversial, but it’s more than likely that Jake Paul just enjoys getting attention more than he cares about the UFC’s long-term health concerns.
