Jake Paul has called out Dana White on Twitter and this time around, Paul has taken a shot at the UFC president for the fighter payment situation in the UFC. In a statement released on Twitter, Paul put White on notice for not paying his fighters their fair share.

The YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer started off his statement by putting White on notice for the $1 million bet the latter had made prior to Paul's fight against Ben Askren.

Jake Paul then reminded the UFC president of the fact that he let Askren train with Freddie Roach and said that White had given Funky full access to the UFC Performance Institute. Despite all of that, Askren was knocked out inside the first round of his boxing debut.

The younger Paul brother continued his statement, saying he had made more money than any UFC fighter ever has in the history of the promotion (except for Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor) in only his third fight.

Jake Paul further put Dana White on notice for the latter's recent issues with Jon Jones, who has refused to fight in the UFC without a proper paycheck.

Paul wrote that White should hurry up and book Jones vs. Ngannou while paying both men their fair share - a $10 million purse for each fighter plus a share of the pay-per-view profits.

Here's what Jake Paul tweeted out to Dana White in the aftermath of UFC 261:

At the UFC 261 pay-per-view, Jake Paul made his presence known to the audience and also got a lot of attention from the Jacksonville crowd, albeit mostly negative. Paul even got into a verbal altercation with Daniel Cormier, who confronted the former in the arena.
