Dana White reacts to Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva fight rumors
UFC president Dana White is tired of talking about Jake Paul, he’s made that abundantly clear, but he did have some choice words when asked about a rumored fight between the influencer turned boxer and one of his most beloved former champions, Anderson Silva.
“I don’t give a sh*t, do you know what I mean?” White told reporters during his DWCS post-fight interview. “If he’s really fighting Anderson Silva, and that’s true, it’s about time he’s got a real fight on his hands there. Regardless of how old Anderson is, yeah, that’s a real fight.”
Later in the night a follow-up Paul question was asked and White wasn’t as willing to give up any more of his time.
“Stop asking me about Jake Paul, guys. I don’t care what Jake Paul does. I know you like that shit, and I know it gives you clicks, but come on,” he laughed. “Come on, this guy has nothing to do with my business. He’s not fighting for me, he’s not even in the same fucking sport as me. I don’t want to talk about him anymore. I do not care.”
The Paul vs. Silva fight has been announced for October but so far has not been confirmed by the promotion or either fighter.
