Released alongside a music video, “Dana White Diss Track” sees Paul take aim at not only at White, but several prominent UFC fighters including Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal, Nate Diaz, and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Paul ends the song with a spoken word portion aimed at White.
“Dana, pay your fighters more,” he says. “Give them healthcare, you scumbag. I haven’t met a single person who says anything good about you. I passed my drug test and you went silent. I’m keeping my foot on your neck until you tap, bitch. Stop raising your pay-per-view prices on the fans and not paying fighters more. Greedy, old, lonely, bald, bitch.”
In a statement shared with Complex, Paul reiterated his criticism of White involving pay for fighters and his “pure disrespect to the athlete and the sport.” You can read it in full below.
I tried to fight for the UFC but Dana White refused to respond to my offer. Obviously, testing me is not that important to him as it would mean he would have to raise fighter pay and give them the long term healthcare that they fully deserve.
The song arrives just a few weeks after Paul celebrated the New Year by taking to Twitter and giving White a set of changes he wanted to see implemented in the UFC. According to Paul, should White abide by the changes, the YouTuber-turned-boxer will retire from boxing and take on MMA fighter Jorge Masvidal.
“To all UFC fighters – time to take a stand and create value for yourselves and your peers,” Paul wrote. “You deserve higher pay, you deserve long term health and above all you deserve freedom. Support each other. I am not your enemy. I am your advocate…who selfishly wants to KO a few of you to make some big bank.”
White subsequently responded to Paul’s demands in a video posted to Instagram.
“I believe that you’re a cheater, and I believe that you use steroids, so I want to randomly steroid-test you for the next two years,” White said. “And that thing you came out with today? Nobody on earth thinks that you really wrote that, you’re too stupid.” White added that Paul’s current manager used to be his accountant and that he’s “a scumbag.”
“If you two think that you can do it better than we do, you know, we’re doing this whole thing wrong, you can treat the fighters better than we do, knock yourself out. Go start your own business,” White said.
Just last week, Paul sent more shots at White in a post celebrating his 25th birthday. Included in a list of goals he aims to accomplish in his new year of life, Paul says he wants to “expose bully Dana.”
