Dana White refuses to do business with Jake Paul after UFC champ Kamaru Usman issues chilling threat to YouTuber

UFC supremo Dana White has refused to ever do business with Jake Paul and his brother Logan.

The social media stars have taken the boxing world by storm, so much so they've recently landed big-money fights with Ben Askren and Floyd Mayweather respectively,


Jake, 24, taunted several UFC fighters in the aftermath of his first-round knockout of Askren last month – including dominant welterweight king Kamaru Usman.

But White has no intention of getting involved in the lucrative Paul business.

During an interview with ESPN, the veteran promoter said: "First of all, I would never do business with those guys, just no.

"No, this is not what we do. I'm not gonna f*****g loan them a guy for f*****g what? There's no way.

"You got plenty of f******g goofballs out there that you can muster up to get in there and play these games that these guys are playing. Yeah, I'm not your guy."

White is by no means a fan of YouTubers fighting but admits Jake has done well to become a talking point in the combat sports world.

He added: "Listen, you cannot deny the fact that this kid has inserted himself into the conversation with real guys.

"'This guy has got three fights, and I gotta tell you that I don't know if I truly believe the Ben Askren thing. I have a hard time wrapping by brain around that."

Former Disney star Jake has gone 3-0 as a professional boxer, with all three of his victories coming inside the distance.

White, however, has yet to be impressed by The Problem Child and believes it's only a matter of time before he finds himself in trouble.

He said: "Let's see how long it takes before this kid's 15 minutes are up, but they are being smart.

"They are keeping him away from anybody that could actually really do damage.

"I don't know. The Ben Askren thing still blows my mind."

White's comments on Jake came a few days after UFC welterweight champ Usman issued a chilling warning to the younger Paul brother after seeing he'd tweeted a picture of his daughter Samirah.

The Nigerian Nightmare wrote "I understand you think this is a game which is probably why you don’t realize that this is how people truly get hurt.

"I don’t play fighting and I can change your life in the worst way."
