Dana White recently revealed that he wants to get involved with boxing. However, he believes that the sport is in a difficult situation at the moment.

In an interview with Teddy Atlas, White spoke about his aspirations to get into boxing, but expressed concern about entering that area of ​​combat sports.

“I’m still kicking the tires and looking around me and it is very complicated, you know that the sport is a disaster, it is literally a disaster and to achieve it you have to go in and clean it, you know?” I’ve been working on this for years and I don’t know, we’ll see what happens.

Dana White has been involved with boxing once before. White was one of the main catalysts for Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather to materialize in 2017.

The fight sold nearly 4.3 million pay-per-view purchases, making it the second-largest of all time. He only lived up to Mayweather’s 2015 clash with Manny Pacquiao.

Seeing such success in his only boxing endeavor, Dana White is certainly eager to get his hands dirty in the boxing world again. However, it seems that he is waiting for the right opportunity.

There has been talk of creating crossover events with Jake or Logan Paul, who have taken the boxing scene by storm in recent months. Given his attitude towards YouTubers-turned-boxers, White apparently isn’t very into it.

Dana White challenges Jake Paul

It’s safe to say that Dana White isn’t a huge Jake Paul fan. The two of you have had a dislike for each other for a while now. Taking things even further, the UFC president recently issued a challenge to Paul.

Jake Paul has previously accused Dana White of be a “head of coke.” White responded during his interview with Teddy Atlas, saying:

I have a challenge for Jake Paul. So this guy keeps saying I’m a coke addict, right? You can randomly test me for cocaine for the next 10 years, if I can randomly test for steroids for the next two. “
