Jake Paul Drops Explicit Dana White Diss Track; Tells UFC Boss to Lay Off CocaineJanuary 28, 2022
"F--k Dana White" is the chorus of a diss track released by YouTube star Jake Paul on Friday aimed at the UFC president.
Paul also rapped that White should "lay off that cocaine" and called him a "scumbag" for not increasing fighter pay or giving them healthcare options.
Here's the full song (language NSFW):
Near the end of the track, Paul transitions from rapping to a message directed toward White.
"I haven't met a single person who says anything good about you," he says. "I passed my drug test and you went silent. I'm keeping my foot on your neck until you tap, bitch. Stop raising your pay-per-view prices on the fans and not paying fighters more. Greedy, lonely, old, bald bitch."
It's the latest exchange in an escalating war of words between Paul, who's recently got into the fight game with a 5-0 boxing record, and White.
In December, White responded after the social media star's initial suggestion he used cocaine.
"So this guy keeps saying that I'm a cokehead," the UFC president said on The Fight with Teddy Atlas (via Bloody Elbow). "He can randomly cocaine test me for the next 10 years if I can randomly steroid test him for the next two."
Chisanga Malata of The Sun subsequently reported both Paul and opponent Tyron Woodley, a former UFC welterweight champion, "produced negative results for all prohibited substances" before their second fight on Dec. 18. Paul won the bout by sixth-round knockout.
The heart of the dispute between Paul and White has been fighter pay and healthcare. The YouTuber-turned-boxer announced Tuesday he'd purchased stock in Endeavor Group Holdings Inc., the UFC's parent company, to further his efforts to improve fighter pay and healthcare:
Jake Paul @jakepaul
I’ve invested in EDR (UFC) stock with my partner <a href="https://twitter.com/geoffreywoo?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@geoffreywoo</a> 2 focus on UFCs ESG standards relating to fighters. We believe EDR can drive long-term economic value by increasing UFC fighter pay & providing them healthcare.

White previously said Paul and his manager, Nakisa Bidarian, should start their own promotion if they have all the answers.
"But if you two think you can do it better than we do, [that] we're doing the whole thing wrong and you're treating fighters better than we do, knock yourself out," White said. "Go start your own business, it's easy to do. Get the warlock on it."
Now the question is whether he'll fire back after Paul's diss track.
