Jake Paul has continued the bitter war of words with UFC president Dana White, claiming he is ‘in his head’.

Paul said his criticisms of UFC president White (pictured) for what he described as underpaying fighters was ‘affecting his business’ and meant the 24-year-old was ‘in his head’
He said: ‘The UFC fighters can’t talk about it. They can’t advocate for fighter pay because Dana White will just shut them… I see how hard fighting is, I see how hard these fighters work.
‘The fact that it’s so skewed versus any other sport, and it’s the most dangerous sport out of all of them, there needs to be a change there and I’m actually starting to affect Dana White’s business. He talks about me way more than I talk about him.
White has previously criticised Paul, calling him a ‘f****** YouTube kid’, not a boxer, declared people are excited for the moment the ‘Problem Child’ gets knocked out and claimed he would bet $1million on Paul losing against Ben Askren.

But Jake, brother of fellow YouTuber-turned-fighter Logan – who went the distance against legend Floyd Mayweather – won against ex-UFC star Askren and will now face Woodley later this month in the biggest test of his fledgling fighting career.
He added: ‘A lot of times, I’ll just be minding my business and then all of a sudden, there’s a whole new interview where he’s talking about me. So I’m definitely in his head because before, when we were talking, it was just random back-and-forth.
‘But now I’m actually affecting his business and they don’t like that. Those are big-wig guys with a lot of power, who are very greedy and will do anything to get to the top, and they have gotten to the top, but they want more, they always want more.’
