Jake Paul has continued his war of words with Dana White, claiming the UFC boss pays his ring girls more than the fighters.

White isn't a big fan of the YouTube star's move into pro boxing and his attempts to call out a number of UFC stars recently - including Conor McGregor.

White recently shot down the prospect of Paul ever setting foot in the Octagon.

“He ain’t fighting in the UFC," White said at a UFC 261 media conference.

“You’re getting me talking about this f***ing guy again.”

And Paul has now responded, making a staggering claim about how much White pays his fighters compared to the ring girls.

“Dana White pays his ring girls more than his fighters," Paul tweeted alongside a clown emoji.

Paul is 3-0 in professional boxing after victories over fellow YouTuber AnEson Gib, former NBA star Nate Robinson and former UFC fighter Ben Askren.

But his three fights haven't impressed White one bit.

“He’s getting hand-picked opponents and God knows what else is going with that whole f***ing thing," the UFC boss said.

“There is a market for that - that is not what I do.

"People want to see that and it’s great and this kid is going to make a couple of bucks before this ride is over. It’s just not what I do.”

Logan Paul to fight Floyd Mayweather

Jake isn't the only Paul brother to make a foray into boxing, with older sibling Logan set to fight Floyd Mayweather.

The boxing Hall of Famer will face Logan Paul in a pay-per-view event on June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium in Florida.

Earlier this month he squared off with Jake Paul at a pre-fight event when Jake took Mayweather's cap.

Apparently incensed that Mayweather called both Pauls "fake fighters" and offered to take on both on the same night, Jake Paul confronted the former champion.

In what appeared to be a staged get-together, Paul grabbed Mayweather's white baseball cap and "security" jumped between the two as Mayweather surged toward Paul.

"I don't have to talk about what I'm going to do. The world knows what I'm going to do," Mayweather said.

"I'm willing to fight both in the same night."

Mayweather had a 50-0 record with 27 knockouts during a career in which he won world titles in five weight divisions over three decades.

Followed by more than 20 million on YouTube, Logan Paul began boxing in 2019 with a six-round bout against fellow YouTube star KSI.
