Don’t expect to see Jake Paul at any UFC events anytime soon.
The rising boxing star, Jake Paul is on his way up in combat sports. He is continuing to win but is making some enemies along the way. Paul is known best for his personality and for being outspoken. He has made a career off of defeating former UFC stars in the boxing ring and has also been campaigning for better fighter pay. It was that last bit that made him an outlaw at UFC events.
Paul has made himself an enemy of the UFC and Dana White mostly because of his crusade against the pay UFC fighters are receiving. Paul has created an uproar regarding fighter pay and many current and former UFC have joined him in that mission. White is constantly being asked about Paul at press conferences and has expressed his disdain for discussing him.
Jake Paul is banned from attending UFC events
In the leadup to his boxing match against former UFC champion Anderson Silva, Paul was filming a video with current UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, who invited him to one of his fighters. Paul shared that although he would love to, he is banned from attending UFC events.

“I’m banned from UFC events,” he said. “Dana banned me after they all were yelling f–k Jake Paul in the stadium and then I tried to go to a different fight and all of our tickets were declined banned and then his assistant was like ‘get the f–k out of here’ and like escorted me out the event and then Dana White’s son, apparently I didn’t know who it was at the time, he’s like, ‘I f–king hate you.’ He was like drunk off of some sh-t like wearing some suit. And he was like, f–k you. And he was using like racial slurs against me.”
Paul later said he would consider going to Adesanaya’s fight in Madison Square Garden wearing a disguise. In the leadup to his fight with Silva, he donned a “fat suit” as a joke and said he could put that on again to sneak into UFC 281.
Before he can make any plans to crash a UFC event he must first get through Anderson Silva on Saturday night. The event will take place Saturday, Oct. 29 live from the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ.
