‘Shut the f*** up’ – Jake Paul has been criticized by Jorge Masvidal for being hypocritical in a pay dispute with UFC boss Dana White
JORGE MASVIDAL has accused Jake Paul of hypocrisy in his dispute with UFC President Dana White over fighter pay.
Paul has lobbied White over raising UFC stars’ minimum wages, splitting revenues and adding a healthcare system.
But current UFC welterweight Masvidal has defended White, accusing the YouTuber boxer of underpaying fighters on his cards.
Masvidal, 37, has just announced a boxing card he was promoting, beating Paul, 26, in the process.
He said on The MMA Hour: “I put my money where my mouth is. That motherf***er Jake Paul talks about paying fighters.
“Keep your mouth shut. When everyone sees what the heck the card bill is, the whole card top to bottom, I pay fighters.
“Me and my promotion pay fighters. My brothers and sisters so they can earn a paycheck, kick ass and do what the fuck they do. All this other shit is cops *** and talking.”
Boxing legend Roy Jones Jr., 54, will headline a card promoted by Masvidal against ex-UFC champion Anthony Pettis, 36.
Meanwhile, Paul has managed three events co-promoted by his Most Valuable Promotions banner in his 6-0 career.
The American even paid all undercard fighters half their wallets when his fight with Hasim Rahman Jr., 31, was called off in August.

But Masvidal has still accused Paul of only looking out for himself as he defended his UFC boss White.
Masvidal said: “He always fucking cares about us and that doesn’t happen without Dana White and the UFC giving permission for these guys to fight.
“When I hear someone like Jake Paul talk about my business partners I’m like that idiot, what the hell have you been doing in this sport but supporting yourself?
“Shut up and watch the big boys do it now.”
