Jake Paul responds to Dana White’s drug testing challenge with offer to fight in the UFC

    Jake Paul has responded to UFC president Dana Whiteโ€˜s drug testing challenge with an offer to fight in the UFC if certain conditions are met.

    The YouTuber turned professional boxer extended his undefeated boxing record to 5-0 in his last fight by knocking out former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in their rematch on Dec. 18. After the win, Paul directed his attention toward the UFC president.

    โ€œI just knocked out a five-time UFC champion and embarrassed your whole company. Please let me get Kamaru Usman, please let me get (Nate) Diaz, please let me get (Jorge)ย Masvidal. Cause Iโ€™m going to embarrass them, too. I promise you, Dana,โ€ Paul said after putting Woodley to sleep in the 6th round of their rematch.

    During a recent interview on โ€œThe FIGHT with Teddy Atlas,โ€ White stated that no fighter under UFC contract will be boxing Paul and issued a drug testing challenge to the 24-year old boxer.

    โ€œI got a challenge for Jake Paul,โ€ย White said.โ€œ This guy keeps saying that Iโ€™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.โ€

    On Monday, Paul kicked off the new year by responded to Whiteโ€™s challenge with an offer to fight in the UFC if White meets certain conditions. Paul laid out those conditions on social media.

    โ€œI will immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to:

    1. Increase minimum fighter pay to $50k (itโ€™s 12k currently)

    2. Guarantee UFC fighters 50% of the UFC annual revenues ($1bn in 2021)

    3. Provide long term health care to all fighters (you previously said brain damage is part of the gigโ€ฆ Imagine if the NFL said that). There are many UFC alums who have publicly said they are suffering from brain damage.ย 

    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 the UFC to fight weak chin Jorge Masvidal.โ€
