Dana White Issues Challenge To Jake Paul After Becoming Sick Of YouTuber Calling Him Cocaine Addict
| Last updated
Dana White has issued a challenge to Jake Paul after growing fed up of the YouTuber saying he’s a cocaine addict.
The social media star-turned professional boxer has previously made frequent jibes at White claiming he's a cocaine user, having even turned the quips into inspiration for his Halloween costume this year.
In a snap posted on Instagram, a hairless Paul could be seen holding a white bag with a label that said ‘(UFC) Unlimited Free Cocaine’, with white powder smeared across his nose and upper lip.
In a later interview with Graham Bensinger, the 24-year-old defended the stunt, saying: “Everyone knows about Dana’s coke habit and the hookers. I’m just a young guy and Dana has the audience I want. He doesn’t realise he is playing into my game.”
But it seems White’s had enough of the taunts, having not only said he’s up for being randomly tested for the drug, but also making his own subtle accusation against Paul.
Appearing on The Fight with Teddy Atlas, White challenged Paul to undergo random testing for performance-enhancing drugs.
“I got a challenge for Jake Paul,” White said.
“This guy keeps saying that I’m a coke head. He can randomly cocaine test me for the next 10 years if I can randomly steroid test him for the next two.”
Back in August, Paul told MMA Junkie that he’s never used banned substances, and that he’s open to being tested at any time.
He said: “My manager sent me that the morning it came out like, ‘Hey, by the way, Georges St-Pierre’s coach said you’re on PEDs.'
“So I swiped up my phone – this is a true story on my mom’s life, she’s looking me in my eyes (right now) – I swipe up my phone, click Safari and type in, ‘What’s PEDs?’ Then I see it says performance-enhancing drugs.
“I texted my manager back, ‘Good thing I had to Google what PEDs are.’ But I look at it as a compliment. People are trying to do anything they can to discredit me and take away from this journey. They’re already making excuses for him when he loses.”
He added: “Test me whenever.”
