Jake Paul continues to rip into Dana White over UFC fighter pay.
During an interview with GQ on Thursday, White fired back at calls for him to raise fighters’ salaries.
“Fighters always want to make more money,”.“Boxing has absolutely been destroyed because of money and all the things that go on. It’s never gonna happen while 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.”
Paul saw White’s comment and slammed the UFC president’s stance on fighter pay 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. https://t.co/ZdtV0MsrXk

If my boss told me I am never getting a raise I would quit and go somewhere that actually values me. Right?
But what if ur boss, who has made hundreds of millions from ur hard work told u he’s not increasing ur minimum pay and you’re not able to quit? https://t.co/HkuZ7wmRrj

This isn’t the first time Paul has criticized White over fighter pay and it likely won’t be the last.
