JAKE PAUL has slammed Dana White for ‘taking UFC stars’ money’.

Paul, 24, is preparing to face former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley on August 28 in a boxing ring.

The Problem Child repeatedly wound White up in the build-up to his victory over ex Bellator and ONE Championship belt holder Ben Askren in April.

And as he begins the build-up to his fourth professional bout, Paul has ripped into White once again.

He said: “There’s a movement moving forwards that is going to show that fighters should be getting paid more. It’s unfair.

“The UFC fighter’s don’t have fair pay. Out of all the sports, the percentage that the owners get versus the athlete, they’re the lowest.

“Francis Ngannou vs. Jon Jones, that fight should happen. Dana White, pay them the $10 million. He’s taking their money. They’re the ones making the content. They’re the ones who get in the ring risking their life.

“Chris Weidman goes in, snaps his leg in half, what’s that look like? He may never be able to fight again and provide for his family. These fighters are risking their lives.

“You can quite literally die in the ring and they need to be compensated more. I’m a big proponent of that movement and being in control.

“It’s just like music labels, same thing, these artists are getting owned and get locked up into these s***** contracts and they don’t know what to do. So f*** that s***. F*** Dana White.”

British former UFC fighter Jimi Manuwa posted a clip of Paul’s rant, writing: “No lies told !!! Thoughts ?”

Paul emphatically defeated grappler Askren by first-round KO back in April.

But as a striker Woodley, 39, is set to be a far tougher test.

With The Chosen One on a four-fight slide, however, Paul may feel that T-Wood has lost his mojo for good.
