Jake Paul saw the challenge from UFC President Dana White. Now he’s raising the stakes. Days after White submitted a challenge for the YouTuber-turned-boxer to take a random test for performance-enhancing drugs for the next two years in exchange for White being randomly tested for illegal narcotics over the next decade.

Paul responded with an offer from him. own, laying down the terms of a new deal that would see the 24-year-old “immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC” if White agreed to three stipulations.

Paul also asked UFC fighters to come together and work to improve conditions for athletes in the promoter as a united front. His message can be read below.

Happy New Year Dana White. This is a real challenge for you… I will immediately retire from the box and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree with:

1) Increase the minimum fighter pay per fight to 50K (now it’s 12K)

2) Guaranteeing UFC fighters 50% of annual UFC revenue ($ 1 billion in 2021)

3) Provide long-term medical care to all fighters (you said earlier that brain damage is part of the job… imagine the NFL said that). There are many UFC alumni who have publicly said they suffer from brain damage.

You have 5 days to accept and implement the above by March 31, 2022. Once implemented, I will immediately retire from boxing, enter USADA, and accept a 1-fight deal with the UFC to fight weak chin Jorge

To all UFC fighters: it’s time to take a stand and create value for yourself and your teammates. You deserve a higher salary, you deserve long-term medical care, and most of all, you deserve freedom. Lean on. I am not your enemy, I am your lawyer … who selfishly wants to KO some of you to make a great bank

Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) knocked out former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in his most recent appearance in the boxing ring.

His huge success and ongoing feud with White and various UFC fighters caused a stir in the MMA world in 2021, And considering how the new year is starting, that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon in 2022.
