The celebrity boxer Jake Paul struck back at former UFC fighter Din Thomas after Thomas questioned Jake’s determination in helping UFC fighters to get better pay and health benefits.
Previously, Jake Paul challenged the UFC president Dana White to raise his fighters’ pay and give them health benefits. ‘The Problem Child’ even planned to create a fighters’ union for both MMA and boxing. People react differently to Jake’s movement. Some fighters secretly support him, while some people believe that the 25-year-old is only aiming for publicity, including Din Thomas.
Din Thomas doubted that Jake really cared about UFC fighters. He said if Jake does care, he should just create his own promotion and pay the fighters they’re worth.
“Not sure I understand Jake Paul. If he really cared about fighters, why don’t he just continue to throw his own events, pay fighters what he wants, and offer them long term health care.” Thomas wrote.
Jake Paul surely got salty at Thomas for doubting him and failed to understand his plan. He responded to the tweet and proved his effort has made a good impact on women’s boxing. Jake even roasted Thomas’ name.
“I am doing that, dumb f*ck. [I] made the biggest women’s boxing payday happen. Will continue to do more. Your bird brain probably doesn’t understand that the movement is bigger than just me tho. Also what kind of parents name their son ‘Din’.” Jake wrote.

As for his performance in the arena, Jake Paul is planning to have a multi million dollar fight with the MMA star Conor McGregor. However, Jake is planning to have at least 5 more boxing fights before he jumps inside an octagon. About the contract, Jake recently offered an agreement to the UFC president Dana White.
He wants to have 1 fight deal within the UFC to fight McGregor. He said if he wins, White has to agree with the challenge about UFC fighters’ payment. However, if Jake loses, he will donate all of his wealth to UFC fighters. Up until now, Dana White hasn’t responded to Jake’s bold move.
“Dana, since you like me now, how about a 1 fight UFC deal to fight Conor. If I win, you agree to my UFC fighter pay and healthcare proposal. If I lose, I donate my entire purse to all UFC fighters who make less than $50K a fight and never mention UFC again. Deal?” Jake wrote.
