Jake Paul Says He'll Retire from Boxing, Only if UFC's Dana White Agrees to His List of Demands

Jake Paul is offering to never step foot in the boxing ring again, but only if UFC president Dana White agrees to meet his list of demands.

The 24-year-old social media star and professional boxer has been wanting to fight against a UFC fighter, but White hasn’t allowed any fighters under contract with UFC to fight outside of the sport.

“Happy new year @danawhite. Here is a real challenge for you… I will immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to…” Jake tweeted on New Year’s Day. He included a screenshot of his list of demands.

Jake‘s demands included, “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.”

He continued, “You have 5 days to accept and to implement the above by March 31, 2022. Once implemented, I will retire from boxing, enter USADA and agree to a 1 fight deal with UFC to fight weak chin Jorge.”

“To all UFC fighters – time to take a stand and create value for yourselves and peers. You deserve higher pay, you deserve long term healthcare and above all you deserve freedom. Support each other. I am not your enemy, I am your advocate…who selfishly wants to KO a few of you to make some big bank,” Jake concluded.

Just a couple weeks ago, Jake had a huge win in the boxing ring.

Dana responded to the list of demands with a video message, in which he accused Jake of being a cheater who takes steroids. He also says he doesn’t believe the social media star actually wrote the list of demands himself. Watch below!
