Jake Paul responds to Dana White’s rant about Anderson Silva with counterproposal
Jake Paul got wind of Dana White's press conference on Tuesday and gave the UFC president a reply.
Paul, a YouTube sensational boxer, was again the target of White's verbal disdain after this week's Dana White's Contender Series event.
White said he doesn't think Paul will be watching a boxing match with former UFC champion Anderson Silva, who has had two highly published boxing victories against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Tito Ortiz since splitting from promotion.
"I fucking guarantee you that: you won't see Jake Paul Anderson calling out Silva. I fucking promise you that, ”White said. “(Silva is) his size and he's actually good. He's old, and that's what Jake Paul likes to fight old guys. He likes to fight against old guys who are too small and who are absolutely, positively washed off. "
The push for Paul vs. Silva came alongside White, essentially calling into question the possibility of Jorge Masvidal being loaned out under his UFC contract for a boxing match. Paul was feuding "Gamebred" in the media up until the days before his August win over Tyron Woodley, and they both said they'd love to pass the Grudge Match.
Paul still seems fixated on Masvidal and following White's comments, he made a counteroffer to make the fight a reality (via Twitter):
"Anderson is out ... JAKE JAKE JAKE .."
I want your starting talent. Their strikers are "in their prime" so that I can take advantage of their lack of boxing skills.
So let's do that Me vs. Jorge Masvidal and Amanda Serrano vs. Amanda Nunes ...
If we win, let each of your fighters fight me. If we lose, I'll leave you and your exploitative business alone.
DANA… DANA… .DANA?
White didn't seem interested in Masvidal fighting Paul when he briefly brought up the subject. It would probably have to be a co-promotion with Showtime, which White has been negative about since doing business with her for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing match.
