- UFC president Dana White has issued a challenge to YouTube boxer Jake Paul
- The pair have endured a bitter war of words since Paul moved into boxing
- The American, 24, has fought and beat two of White’s former UFC athletes

Dana White has demanded that Jake Paul be randomly steroid tested as the UFC president ramped up his war of words with the boxing newcomer.
White, 52, and Paul, 24, have endured a hostile relationship since the YouTuber opted to step in the ring with former UFC athletes such as Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren.
Paul has knocked out both former welterweights and has now called out UFC superstars Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, but the pair are still contracted to fight for the MMA organisation.

The 24-year-old wants White to sanction a boxing bout next year, but the duo are on unfriendly terms with Paul criticising the 51-year-old over subjects such as fighter pay and alleged cocaine use.
The YouTuber aimed a dig at White on Halloween after dressing up as the UFC president with what appeared to be a white substance under his nose.
White has steadfastly denied those allegations and has now thrown down the gauntlet to Paul, issuing a ‘challenge’ for the internet personality.
‘I got a challenge for Jake Paul,’ White told The Fight with Teddy Atlas via MMA Junkie. ‘This guy keeps saying that I’m a coke head. He can randomly cocaine test me for the next 10 years if I can randomly steroid test him for the next two.’

John Fury revealed ahead of Paul’s scheduled bout with son Tommy that the American had refused to undergo VADA (Voluntary Anti Doping Association) testing for the December 18 clash, leading to uncertainty around Paul’s training preparations. Paul denies the claims.
White also slammed the door shut on the prospect of Masvidal or Diaz taking on Paul while the pair remain on the UFC roster, calling on the 24-year-old to take on a recognised boxer his own age and weight.
‘No (scenario I’d let Diaz or Masvidal box Paul while under UFC contract). You notice how he wants to fight f*cking everybody that’s not in his weight class, guys that are older and all this bull****. Go fight a boxer. Go hump somebody else’s leg, you goofball.’
