Dana White has rubbished a challenge from Jake Paul which involved his retirement from boxing in exchange for a shot against Jorge Masvidal in the UFC.
The UFC president has been e mbroiled in a feud with Paul during his recent rise in the iron square, with the YouTube star keen to increase fighters pay in the company.
Paul offered to retire from boxing in exchange for entering the sport’s drug testing programme and a one-off shot with Masvidal in White’s promotion.
However, White later denied the offer from Paul in a social-media video : “You never responded to the challenge. You publicly stated that I use cocaine. I do not. So I told you, you could randomly cocaine test me for the next 10 years.
“I believe that you’re a cheater and I believe that you use steroids, so I want to randomly steroid test you for the next two years. And that thing that you came out with today, nobody on earth thinks that you really wrote that.
“You’re too stupid. And for those of you that don’t know, if you’ve ever watched one of his fights and you see the staredown, the guy that’s standing in the middle with the warlock nose and the big wart on his face, apparently that’s his manager.
“That guy used to be an accountant for me and let’s just say this: He no longer works for me, and I think he’s a scumbag. But, if you two think that you can do it better than we do, we’re doing the whole thing wrong and you’re treating the fighters better than we do: Knock yourself out.
“Go start your own business. It’s easy to do. You can’t sell pay-per-views. You’re calling out Jorge Masvidal because he’s a pay-per-view superstar. Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor, Mike Tyson – these are all superstars. You’re not. You can’t sell pay-per-views. So you do whatever the hell you want to do. I’m ready to roll, buddy. I don’t use cocaine. Do you use steroids? Let’s do this Jake.”
Paul has publicly denied the use of performance enhancing drugs throughout his rapid pay-per-view rise in boxing.

He also denied claims from Tommy Fury’s dad John that he had refused to be tested ahead of his previous postponed showdown with the Briton.
White has also denied Paul’s previous claims that he uses cocaine and has expanded on his willingness to get tested.
He is yet to issue a response to White’s offer but has previously stated his open attitude to being tested before his r ematch victory over Tyron Woodley earlier this month.
Paul used the opportunity to reignite his feud with White after calling out the likes of McGregor and Diaz with a begging message to the UFC kingpin.
The 25-year-old has also campaigned regularly for the fighters in the UFC to have their pay raised and encouraged the likes of Kamaru Usman and Khabib Nurmagomedov to back his offer.
