Jake Paul and Dana White have had a history of throwing massive shade at each-other. But now, it seems like the relationship has hit a climax.

After Paul knocked out Ben Askren in the first round, the Youtube sensation called out both Daniel Cormier and Conor McGregor to be his next opponent. It’s safe to say that Dana White is sick of him calling out MMA guys to fight him in boxing matches.

“Why don’t you go fight a fucking boxer?” White told Yahoo Sports reporter Kevin Iole. “What the fuck do these guys keep talking to UFC guys for?

“I’m gonna have to slap them with another fucking legal letter, these fucking idiots. Go talk to f***ing boxers. What are you doing?”

While Dana White admittedly doesn’t care for Jake Paul, he did give him credit for finding business success with the celebrity boxing matches.

“It’s not my thing but that doesn’t mean it’s not other people’s things,” White told Yahoo Sports.

“When you look at this whole Jake Paul thing that’s going on right now, boxing continues to go like this [motions downwards]. This is the right guy with the right shtick at the right time.

“This guy is playing this thing perfectly, and boxing is in such a bad place, they’re doing a really good job at sucking in people to buy into this thing. And good for him.”

Jake Paul has now won three straight fights, and whoever his next opponent ends up being, I’m sure it’ll garner a lot of interest.
