Dana White Issues Jake Paul A Cocaine / Steroid Test Challenge

When referencing Dana White, YouTube superstar turned boxer Jake Paul has often claimed that the UFC president is a cocaine-user and he’s finally got a response from him about it.

White hit back at Paul during an interview on Teddy Atlas’ show, ‘The Fight’, swatting aside his own drug-use allegation while suggesting that Paul might not be a clean fighter.

“I got a challenge for Jake Paul,” White told Atlas. “This guy keeps saying that I’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.”

White’s allegation isn’t completely without merit as both Tyron Woodley and Tommy Fury had both previously raised concerns at the lack of drug-testing leading up to their fights with Paul in recent months.

That’s a stark contrast from over in the UFC where USADA oversees particularly strict anti-doping policies that includes all fighters being subjected to random drug-testing throughout the year.

Drug-use has not been Paul’s only issue with White though as he’s mostly been focused on calling out the UFC for underpaying and exploiting their fighters.

On that front Paul certainly appears to be generous, with Woodley having claimed that he was making more money from their boxing bouts than he made as a champion in the UFC, while prior to their second meeting the YouTuber not only offered him a $500,000 bonus if he could knock him out, but also gave him a Rolex watch during a pre-fight interview as a thank you for accepting the bout on short notice.

Paul has also been calling out other UFC fighters since his KO win over Woodley, including the likes of Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, but White has made it clear he’s not interested in giving that the green-light.

“No [that’s not happening],” White stated. “You notice he wants to f—king fight everybody that’s not in his weight class, guys that are older and all of this other bullsh-t. Go find a boxer. Go hump somebody else’s leg, you goofball.”
