Jake Paul hits back at UFC chief Dana White over claims he only wants to fight 'old guys' and calls out Jorge Masvidal

JAKE PAUL has hit back at Dana White in his bid to get a fight with UFC star Jorge Masvidal.

Paul, 24, has defeated two former UFC stars in Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley this year, and now he wants Masvidal.


The Youtuber took to Twitter to call out Masvidal once again while making a clear statement towards White.

He wrote: “I want your star talent. Your ‘in their prime’ strikers so I can exploit their lack of boxing ability. So let’s do this: me vs. Jorge Masvidal and Amanda Serrano vs. Amanda Nunes.

“If we win, you let any of your fighters fight me going forward. If we lose, I leave you and your exploitive business alone. Dana… Dana… Dana…?”

Paul's brashness came in response to a harsh reality check White sent him earlier this week.

Commenting on Paul's chances of entering the ring with Masvidal, White told The Contender Series: "[Jorge] Masvidal's under contract with me. Hey Jake, Anderson Silva's out [of contract]. Jake? Jake? Jake?"

"I f****** guarantee you this, you ain't going to see Jake Paul calling Anderson Silva out. That I f****** promise you. He's his size and he's actually good.

"He's old, which is what Jake Paul likes, to fight old guys that are too small and that are absolutely positively washed up."

But Paul is determined to fight Masvidal after the Floridian predicted he would lose to Woodley, which led Paul to label him an "airhead".

Paul has since doubled down in his approach to winding up Masvidal, suggesting he is under the thumb of White.

Speaking on his Most Valuable Promotions Instragram account earlier this week, Paul said: “Jorge, I got some millions for you to fight.

“Is your daddy gonna let you come out? Is he gonna let you come out and play daddy Dana? F******* b****. If he ever lets you out of that contract, I’m baptizing the f*** out of you."
