Jake Paul is once again making headlines regarding the UFC and Dana White, this time taking it a step further by releasing a music video targeting the UFC President as well as Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal, and Nate Diaz.
The music video features a cameo from Bellator champion and former UFC champion Cris Cyborg, who interacts with a Dana White actor before Paul goes into the rap. Paul mentions other names in the video including Khabib Nurmagomedov and White’s former business partners Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta.
The beginning of the song has the lyrics “Now everybody from the UFC, put your motha f*ckin hands up and follow me” followed by the refrain “F*ck Dana. F*ck Dana White.”
The closing of the diss track has some fighting words for the UFC President, “Dana, pay your fighters more. 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, b*tch. Stop raising your pay-per-view prices on the fans and not paying fighters more. Greedy, old, lonely, bald, b*tch.” (Transcribed by MMA Fighting)
Paul has become a figure against fighter pay that cannot be ignored. The Youtube superstar has KO’s of former UFC fighters Ben Askren and most recently Tyron Woodley last month. The 5-0 boxer will continue to make noise in the combat sports world as long as he seemingly keeps winning.
How do you think Dana White will react to Jake Paul’s diss track?
“I think stylistically for Colby Covington, this is a great fight, yes, because he feels like he can go and ground Jorge Masvidal,” Cormier said on a recent episode of the DC & RC podcast (via Sportskeeda).
“A lot of people from within the sport of mixed martial arts think that it’s going to look like Robbie Lawler vs. Colby Covington, where Colby is just trying to overwhelm him with this pressure, but what you don’t understand is the improvements that Jorge Masvidal has made in wrestling and his ability to counter a lot of the things that Covington may have been able to do to him in the past years.
“The guy is a much better fighter today and he’s a much better fighter because of his interactions with Kamaru Usman, even though he lost those fights, he got better preparing for the champion.”
Since Covington and Masvidal are both coming off losses to Kamaru Usman, this fight could be a path back to the title. Both men are still at the top of their game, and if Usman were to lose his next fight, the winner of this UFC 272 main event could very well receive another title opportunity.
With that being said, Covington and Masvidal know each other well. Some people think this will be beneficial to them. They used to be friends and roommates back in their college days.
A lot has changed since these two had a falling out. Both have improved greatly in their fighting skills. Masvidal has only lost to the champion in the last three years. The same goes for Covington, who has only lost to Usman in the last five years.

The #1 Ranked welterweight Colby Covington is looking ahead to a third matchup with current division champion Kamaru Usman given he can get past Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272.
Covington and former best friend Masvidal will headline UFC 272 on March 5th and ‘Chaos’ will be hoping a victory here will secure him another shot at the title.
“The people saw in Madison Square Garden and New York City what happened in that fight. I easily won three rounds. I think I won four rounds. The only round he clearly won was the second. I won the first, the third, the fourth and the fifth, so the people saw that. They want that fight again.”
“There’s no one that’s on his level that can compete with him like I can, so this fight needs to happen again. There needs to be a trilogy because he hasn’t proved that he’s the better fighter. He hasn’t proved that he’s the best welterweight in the world, and there’s still unfinished business there. So I think after I finish Jorge Masvidal on March 5, it puts me right back in line to get my title shot.”
Usman stopped Covington late in the 5th round in their first matchup at UFC 245, the American fighter would then fall short at his second attempt at UFC 268 this time losing via decision.
Colby Covington will have to wait to find out what his options are following his matchup with Masvidal. Leon Edwards was declared as the number one contender and a date is still yet to be set for the British fighter to have his shot at welterweight gold.
Colby Covington Wants Dustin Poirier If There’s No Title Shot
Covington will be looking to settle another rivalry if he is unable to get the title shot, this time with Dustin Poirier.
“I think Louisiana swamp trash ‘Dustin Sorier.”
“That’s a fight that needs to happen after this. That’s another personal grudge match. We’ve got a long history training together. He used to talk sh*t saying it was on sight. He was going to the owner of American Top Team, and he was crying to him up in his feelings to this billionaire, ‘Oh, Colby’s so mean. He said some mean things about me in the media. Kick him out. Do something. Don’t let him train at our gym.’ So that fight needs to happen.
“He said to the media it’s on sight. I’m holding people accountable for all these fake news that they’re saying in the media.” (Transcribed by MMAJunkie.com)
Who do you think will win at UFC 272 Jorge Masvidal or Colby Covington?
Both Covington and Masvidal are coming off losses to reigning welterweight king Kamaru Usman. “Gamebred” fell to back-to-back setbacks against the champion at UFC 251 and 261. “Chaos,” meanwhile, failed in his attempts to reach the 170-pound mountaintop at UFC 245 and UFC 268.
Nevertheless, the Miami native had been in fine form before colliding with Usman, securing finishes against Darren Till, Ben Askren, and Nate Diaz in 2019. Rising bantamweight star O’Malley believes Masvidal could return to that level of form when he enters the Octagon with Covington in March.
“Jorge has never really been taken down and just beaten up for 25 minutes, ever in his career,” O’Malley said on an episode of his YouTube podcast. “If anyone was going to do it, you think it would have been Usman. Usman didn’t go out there, take him down, and maul him. He did knock him out but I don’t know.
“That’s a sick fight. I just get a gut feeling right now that Masvidal could definitely piece up Colby if he shuts down the striking or shuts down the takedowns,” added O’Malley. “Colby brings an insane pace, but Masvidal, that’s going to be such a sick fight. This is the fight I’m most hyped about out of all the big ones.” (h/t Pundit Arena)
Given Covington’s antics prior to his rematch with Usman, we can expect an even more bitter build-up this time around, especially given the former interim champ’s history with former ATT teammate Masvidal.

Things continue to heat up between former friends Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington.
Now that Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington are set to face each other in the main event of UFC 272, the trash talk between them is beginning to ramp up again. There is a history between these two fighters, and anytime that is the case, some past skeletons are bound to come out.
Masvidal is now spilling the tea on Covington and his past troubles with money. According to Masvidal, Covington has been in debt and unable to pay those he owes.
“The list goes on and on: American Top Team, the current gym that he’s at now. They’re having trouble because he hasn’t paid,” Masvidal told The MMA Hour. “This guy owes numerous loan sharks in South Florida for his poker gambling debt. I just hope he makes it to the fight, bro. Because this guy is in all types of trouble and I’m going to be the nail to his mother***ing coffin. I just can’t wait.” (h/t Sportskeeda)
Because of their shared history together, Masvidal and Covington learned a lot about one another. And since their falling out, Masvidal is not shy about telling the world exactly who he thinks Covington is.
“He was living off my couch, he was eating my meal prep – food that they were giving me because I was already sponsored,” Masvidal said. “He was an amateur coming in. It just [puts] a lot of things in perspective. You come into this world alone and you probably come out of it alone as well. This guy is a legit snake so I can’t wait to [punch him]. Ask Jon Jones about it. Motherf***ing Jon Jones has nothing nice to say about him. How about [Tyron] Woodley? Woodley ain’t got nothing nice to say about him.”

The former president of the United State, Donald Trump, will be torn when watching the UFC 272 on March 5.
In the main event of the evening, avid Trump supporters Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal will settle their beef inside the UFC Octagon.
During a recent appearance on The MMA Hour, Masvidal suggested that Trump will be rooting for him to beat Covington at UFC 272, he said.
“I know that for a fact. (Donald Trump) knows what a fighter looks like. He was around boxing forever. He knows what a nut-hugger, ass-kissing machine like Colby looks like. Colby tried to kiss his hand and Trump pulled that sh*t back! That’s on video man, it’s me all day.”
Colby Covington Doubts Jorge Masvidal Even Voted For Donald Trump
‘Chaos’ responded to Masvidal’s recent remarks during an appearance at the UFC 270 live weigh-ins.
“My reaction is that I’m team captain. I’m still, you know, Jorge’s Daddy and he’s just following in the footsteps of his Daddy,” Covington said at the 1:48:00 mark of the below video. “He just likes me so much that he wants to do everything that I do.
“Let’s be honest, did Jorge even vote for Donald Trump? Because I know I did. I’d love for the voters out there to go look it up and see if Jorge actually voted for Trump. You know I don’t if they let felons vote for Trump. You know, it’s good we’ve got a felon on the Republican side because there is so many felons and criminals on the liberal side. So let’s be honest. Did he actually vote for Trump? Someone look that up.” (Transcribed by BJPENN.com)
Covington and Masvidal are coming off losses to the UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. ‘Chaos’ recently dropped to a decision defeat against Usman. Masvidal was KO’d by ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ last time out after previously going five rounds with the champ on a weeks’ notice.
Who do you think Donald Trump will be rooting for at UFC 272? Colby Covington or Jorge Masvidal?
