Famous YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul, lands a nasty verbal shot at UFC president Dana White amidst the ongoing issue between the promotion and heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
‘The Predator’ is currently having differences with the UFC regarding his contract. He also has been expressing his interest in a boxing match with Tyson Fury. However, it is not possible under the UFC contract.
Hence, Ngannou might not sign a new deal with the promotion after his fight this month. Meanwhile, ‘The Problem Child’, since his transitions to boxing, has been calling out UFC fighters and has also demanded White to give him a boxing match with one of his fighters.
However, the UFC kingpin ignored most of Paul’s demands and has been going back and forth with him on the internet. The latter saw an opportunity to call out White again since he is having problems with Ngannou.

‘The Problem Child’ posted a tweet of his account and wrote, “give this man what he wants Dana. such a f**ked up company to be a part of. I got something coming soon.”
Ngannou is one of the most prominent fighters in the UFC. He has been with the promotion for a long time now. However, he competed only once in 2021 because of his issues with the UFC.
The promotion also snubbed him and set up an interim heavyweight title fight between Ciryl Gane and Derrick Lewis at UFC 265. ‘Bon Gamin’ won the fight and will now unify his interim title for the heavyweight gold.
Francis Ngannou Takes On His Former Teammate at UFC 270
‘The Predator’ will break his 10 month-long hiatus and will return to action this month. He will take on the interim heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane in the main event of UFC 270 on 22md January 2022.
‘Bon Gamin’ is Ngannou’s former training partner. Both the men trained under coach Fernand Lopez. However, the Cameroonian fighter parted ways with Lopez and has had bitter relations with him ever since.
Meanwhile, the Frenchman is still training under Lopez and hails an undefeated 10-0 professional record under his name. Gane is one of the best technical fighters in the sport. He can be a tough opponent for the champion. Hence, this fight is going to be a delightful treat for the fans.
