UFC head honcho, Dana White, recently talked about the possibility of Jake Paul competing in the promotion. The 52-year-old confirmed that there is a possibility for the boxing star to have some sort of a limited deal.
Dana White appears to be smoothing things out with the youtuber following harsh call outs and a public relations war he was losing.
The two have been beefing ever since Paul made his transition into celebrity boxing.
Despite the call outs, the 25-year-old youtuber insists he has a plan for a multi-million dollar bout with Conor McGregor.
Recently, Dana White appeared on The Pivot podcast and revealed that Jake Paul could appear under the UFC banner:
White made it clear that he is not against the idea. He even admitted that he is vaguely interested by the idea.
“I would never say never. I don’t know, I mean, I look at it sometimes. And it’s kind of intriguing, but it kind of goes against what I do. I really do bring the best of the best in. I’ve tried to do a couple of those celebrity things with some WWE guys. Some worked. Some didn’t. But I wouldn’t say no. I did Mayweather/McGregor when I said I would never do it.” White said.
