Jake Paul has changed the terms of his challenge to Dana White.
‘The Problem Child’ previously stated that he would retire from professional boxing and sign with the UFC if the company changed the way it does business.
“Happy new year @danawhite,” Paul wrote on Twitter. “Here is a real challenge for you…I will immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to:
“1) Increase min fighter pay per fight to $50k (it’s $12k now)
“2) Guarantee UFC fighters 50% of UFC annual revenues ($1bn in 2021)
“3) Provide long term healthcare to all fighters (you previously said brain damage is part of the gig…imagine the NFL said that). There are many UFC alums who have publicly said they are suffering from brain damage
“You have 5 days to accept and to implement the above by March 31, 2022. Once implemented I will immediately retire from boxing, enter USADA and agree to a 1 fight deal with UFC to fight weak chin Jorge”
Dana White Has Shown No Interest In Negotiating With Jake Paul
The UFC president replied to Paul but for the most part, skipped over his comments on fighter pay and welfare. Four days later, the YouTuber has addressed White playing hardball and in response has changed the terms of his challenge to something that may suit White and the UFC a bit more.
“Dana last day to accept my offer…you are a good negotiator. In an effort to bridge the gap, I’m willing to reduce my ask to $40K min, 40% rev for first 5 years and long term health care,” Paul wrote on Twitter. “Deal? Or are you making another selfie video showing the world how much I’m in your head?”
Do you think Dana White will respond to Jake Paul’s latest offer?
