YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul rose to fame in no time, having beaten the likes of Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley in his professional career. But the YouTuber has been relentlessly arguing for a showdown against UFC’s poster boy Conor McGregor for months and also for fighter compensation with Dana White. In a recent post on Twitter, Paul proposed Dana White’s idea regarding a fight with Conor McGregor in the UFC.
Taking to Twitter, Paul wrote, “Dana – Since you like me now, how about a one-fight UFC deal to fight Conor. You agree to my UFC fighter pay and healthcare proposal if I win. If I lose, I donate my entire purse to all UFC fighters who make less than $50K a fight and never mention UFC again. Deal?”.
The Problem Child, who often indulges in the war of words with UFC boss, has been badgering White over agreeing to a solo with one of his UFC stars, but White has rebuffed Paul’s advances so far. But, with his recent tweet, Paul has made it clear that he has one of UFC’s biggest ever star in his sights, with McGregor completing his rehabilitation from a leg injury suffered during a clash against Dustin Poirier UFC 264, which eventually Paul lost.
Dana – Since you like me now, how about a 1 fight UFC deal to fight Conor.
If I win, you agree to my UFC fighter pay and healthcare proposal.
If I lose I donate my entire purse to all UFC fighters who make less than $50K a fight and never mention UFC again

Paul also employed his trademark trash talk tactics and called out McGregor over a video that Notorious posted of him sparring as part of his recovery. Paul slammed McGregor’s movement in the ring before posting again. He wrote, “I would KO Conor in boxing or MMA. McGregor responded with his own video calling Paul a ‘jack***’.
