Social media personality turned boxer Jake Paul, slammed UFC President Dana White for mistreating his fighters.
IT’S THE END OF THE U.F.C. AS WE KNOW IT
Last month, one of the sport’s most prominent journalists, Ariel Helwani, was ejected from a U.F.C. event after reporting a story before the company could announce it; White told T.M.Z. that Helwani would never again receive a media credential “as long as I’m here.” (After sports-media outlets erupted in outrage, the company reinstated Helwani.) This approach to media relations seemed reminiscent of a certain Presidential candidate, and perhaps that candidate took note: on Monday, the Donald Trump campaign announced that it had hired Steven Cheung, who happens to be a former publicist for the U.F.C.
.. As White once put it, “It’s none of your fuckin’ business how much these guys are making.”
