Jake Paul Drops Dana White Diss Track With 'All Proceeds Going To Underpaid UFC Fighters'

Jake Paul Drops Dana White Diss Track With 'All Proceeds Going To Underpaid UFC Fighters'

Jake ​Paul continued his tirade against the UFC by launching a Dana White diss track, claiming all proceedings will go to ‘underpaid fighters’ in the MMA company

You can watch it below (it contains a lot of strong language):

Yesterday (28 January), the YouTuber-turned-boxer shared the song, which features a scathing tirade against White and some of the biggest names in the sport.

Yes, Conor McGregor gets a roasting, along with Tommy Fury, who pulled out of a fight with Paul last year.

At one point Paul raps: "Jake go fight a boxer, s*** I tried - and he p****ed out 'cause they know how I'm coming so they keep on hiding."

But the most significant message appears to be Paul’s claim that White cashes in on fighters’ efforts while not providing sufficient long term healthcare. 

Former UFC champion Cris Cyborg is featured in the music video having an exchange with an actor portraying White.

Paul then launches into a rap with lyrics taunting big UFC names including McGregor, as well as Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz. 

The video ends with Paul choking out the White stand-in while saying: "Dana, pay your fighters more. Give them healthcare, you scumbag.

"I haven’t met a single person who says anything good about you. I passed my drug test and you went silent.

"I’m keeping my foot on your neck until you tap, b***h.

"Stop raising your pay-per-view prices on the fans and not paying fighters more. Greedy, old, lonely, bald, b***h."

Sharing the diss track on his YouTube channel, Paul wrote: “All proceeds from this video go to underpaid fighters in the UFC who get paid the $12k minimum.”

This news is the latest in an ongoing rivalry between Paul and White following failed negotiations for the YouTuber to make his UFC debut.

Paul is currently 5-0 in his career as a professional boxer, winning his last three fights against ex-UFC stars Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, with Woodley being beaten by Paul twice. 

The 25-year-old former Disney star seems set to jump into the world of MMA, but only if White agrees to increase pay for fighters to $50,000 as well as guaranteeing a higher cut of the revenues. 

He also asked the UFC boss to provide long term healthcare to all fighters, explaining 'you previously said brain damage is part of the gig… imagine the NFL said that'.

Towards the end of the negotiation, Paul told White he had 'five days to accept' and from there he must implement the points by 31 March 2022.

The boxer then changed the terms of the offer - specifically reducing the amount fighters are paid to $40,000 as well as asking for 40 percent revenue for the first five years alongside long term healthcare.

White has downplayed the feud, saying in an interview with YouTuber Manouk Akopyan: “He really hasn’t been a thorn in my side. I don’t hate the guy like people think I hate him.

“You know, he’s out there doing his thing. He’s a young guy who’s got a fanbase and is trying to make some money. I don’t ever fault anybody for that.”

Whether he’ll maintain this view about the YouTuber following the diss track is yet to be seen, but what we do know is many UFC fans are on Paul’s side. 

“Behind all the memes and jokes, there's a real hidden message there,” wrote one commenter. “Big ups to all the fighters risking their lives for our entertainment! Dana pay them the money they deserve!”

Another posted: “You know how much people dislike Dana White if they have to side with Jake Paul lmao.”

A third jokes: “I’m trying really hard to continue disliking Jake Paul but he’s making it increasingly difficult.”

A fourth chimed in: “This actually makes Jake likeable.”
