JAKE PAUL GETS UFC CHAMP’S SUPPORT AS DANA WHITE FEUD RUMBLES ON

WHAT HAPPENED?

Jake Paul has got a fan in UFC champion Francis Ngannou as the heavyweight king said he agrees “100%” with the things he’s thrown at Dana White.

The Cameroonian fighter – who has reportedly ‘negotiated’ with Jake for a fight – posted an interview to YouTube on February 18.

“”

I follow all the stuff, I am aware of what’s happening, you know. Jake Paul has his own way of communicating, which is a little different. Maybe not the same way as I will communicate but in the meantime, I can’t blame him. I’m 100 percent with him for what he says.

“”

When he claimed for fighter healthcare, oh, I am 100 percent down with that. He claimed for a fighter pay increase, I’m 1000 percent down for that.

“”

So, the fighters are not protected, fighters are all out there on their own and nobody looks up to them. They are putting their body on the line for something. At least give them healthcare. I’m 1000 percent down for that.

While Jake has tried to make inroads to effect change in the UFC, and has some support, nothing has happened just yet.
