The newest instance comes after UFC 261 on Saturday night time the place Paul was in attendance on the present in Jacksonville, Fla. the place he really had an altercation in the course of the occasion with former heavyweight and light-weight heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
Paul and Cormier really needed to be separated as they have been jawing forwards and backwards at one another and following the occasion UFC president Dana White took intention on the 24-year-old Ohio native whereas additionally ripping his current pay-per-view by Triller Struggle Membership.
“He knocked out an NBA man that was 40 years previous and 30 kilos lower than him,” White mentioned on the UFC 261 post-fight press convention. “I don’t even know what to consider the [Ben] Askren factor. The entire thing is f*cking mind-boggling to me, however good for him. Seize that cash whilst you can, child.
“I don’t imagine something [Triller] say. That’s a f*cking circus. None of that’s actual. Do you assume any of that sh*t that’s occurring over there may be actual? C’mon, man. I constructed an actual enterprise right here, an actual sport.”
Following these feedback in addition to White refuting that he really made a wager with rapper Snoop Dogg over the current combat between Paul and Askren, the 3-0 boxer took to Twitter to fireplace again.
“Dana, you claimed you’ll be $1 million on me shedding,” Paul wrote. “Arrange Askren to coach with Freddie Roach. Gave him full entry to the UFC [Performance Institute] and he nonetheless obtained his ass handed to him.”

Pay them their fair proportion. $10 million purse for every man plus pay-per-view.
“Why are UFC fighters so underpaid versus boxers? Why did I make extra in my third combat than all however two (Khabib [Nurmagomedov] and Conor [McGregor]) UFC fighters have in historical past. I do know why.”
Judging by this newest back-and-forth, Paul definitely has no drawback attempting to attract White in for a combat in addition to this grudge seems removed from completed.
