JAKE PAUL claimed he earns more money than every ‘silly motherf***er’ in the UFC COMBINED – including Conor McGregor.
Paul has built up a steady feud with UFC president Dana White, knocked out two of his former fighters and continues to call out current stars.
Più recentemente, Jorge Masvidal urged the YouTube sensation to make a switch to the cage so they can fight.
But Paul made it clear he is his own boss, unlike those contracted to the UFC, and makes more money than the lot of them.
He said on his brother Logan’s podcast: “I make more than every UFC fighter f***ing combined, including Conor.
“Y’all work for f***ing Dana, y’all work for WME, Endeavor, that’s who you work for.
“I make more than all of you silly motherf***ers. Why would I go into the UFC? Sign a contract and give away my f***ing rights and s***.
“I own my content, I own my platform, I own everything. They don’t own s***, they are literally employees.
“I’m a f***ing CEO and every UFC fighter is an employee. Get that straight. I’m not coming over there and doing s*** with y’all.”

Paul has headlined or co-featured in all of his five fights, including three pay-per-view main-events.
He has claimed to earn ‘eight-figures’ in the ring before while McGregor is known to bank close to £30m for a fight once his PPV bonuses are accounted for.
Paul firstly beat YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, e in pensione dei pesi welter UFC Ben Askren, anche 37.
But he then followed it up with an eight-round points win over Tyron Woodley, 39, in agosto.
The American was set to fight Tommy Fury, 22, afterwards, until the British former reality TV star pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.
Woodley then signed as a late replacement but was knocked out in the rematch, giving Paul his third win over a former UFC fighter.
I make more than all of you silly motherf***ers. Why would I go into the UFC? Sign a contract and give away my f***ing rights and s***.
Nate Diaz, 36, and Masvidal, 37, were both in attendance and called out by the social media influencer afterwards.
And he doubled down with a $5million (£3.7m) offer to Masvidal, who would need to be given permission from the UFC to cross over to the boxing ring.
Paolo, 24, disse: “Masvidal, I got an offer for you right now. Five million dollar guarantee, plus percentage of pay-per-views.
“That’s the most you will ever have made in a fight, mai. Così, now you can’t say, ‘I either fight the best, or I fight for money’.
“Five million dollar guarantee, plus percentage of pay-per-view, let’s make it happen, that’s the most you would have gotten paid, periodo, times triple.
“Daddy Dana just has to let you out of your contract. You work for the UFC, you’re a bitch, basically.”
