Star professional boxer Jake Paul challenged the UFC President Dana White by laying down certain terms and conditions and said that he will immediately retire from the sport and will also fight the rival Jorge Masvidal if White agrees to it.
Jake, on his official Twitter handle, shared a small document in which the three conditions were written. He also penned an interesting caption.
"Happy new year Dana White," he wrote.
He added: "Here is a real challenge for you… I will immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to:"
Meanwhile, the document on Paul's Twitter account read: "Increase min fighter pay per fight to $50K (it’s $12K now. Guarantee UFC fighters 50% of UFC annual revenues ($1bn in 2021).
The statement further read: "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," Jake challenged White.
Meanwhile, he also backed other fighters to stand for their right: "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."
