UFC President Dana White recently downplayed any beef with Jake Paul and has high praise for his brother, Logan.
Jake hasn’t been shy in trying to ruffle some feathers. White has been a key target for Jake, who has bashed the UFC boss for low fighter pay and his harsh comments about fighters who don’t play ball. While Dana White has never minced words, his recent comments about Jake were rather tame.

Dana White Doesn’t Take Bait From Jake Paul
White was a guest on “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson” and he was asked about the back-and-forth exchanges he’s had with Jake Paul. Dana White simply brushed off the notion that he has any real issues with Jake.
“I don’t f*cking hate Jake Paul,” White said. “Jake Paul is one of those guys that he’s a young kid, and he’s just trying to get attention. He’s always looking for attention and, you know, he’s doing his thing. Whatever, it’s all good [laughs].”
Jake Paul is fresh off a unanimous decision victory over Nate Diaz in their boxing match. “The Problem Child” is trying to get Diaz to agree to an MMA rematch under the PFL banner.
High Praise For Logan Paul
Dana White has quite the opposite relationship with Jake’s brother, Logan Paul. In fact, Paul co-owns PRIME energy drinks along with KSI, and it is now the official energy drink of the UFC. White gushed over Logan’s business sense, and he even had some praise for KSI.
“The brother is f*cking brilliant,” White said. “I mean, the brother’s f*cking raking in big dough. Logan Paul is a businessman. This kid’s really making some big moves, and KSI too. Those kids are making real money and doing their thing.”
