Jorge Masvidal jokingly thanked Dana White for finally acknowledging all his hard work throughout his UFC journey.

Dana White is going all out in the ongoing feud against YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul. Both Paul and White aren’t losing any chance to put shade on each other on the internet. It all started when Paul called out the UFC president for underpaying his fighters and not looking after their health. Paul remarked that White is making huge profits from pay-per-view events but UFC superstars are not getting what they deserve. The ” Problem Child ” then even encouraged fighters to leave UFC and join other promotions to make money.

Reacting to all these, White put out a video clip in his Instagram account where he challenged Paul for a steroid check. As the clip continued, White described that Paul is not capable of selling huge Pay-per-view events that’s why he is calling out UFC superstars like Jorge Masvidal, Nate Diaz, and Conor McGregor. “ You can’t sell pay-per-views. You are calling out Jorge Masvidal, because he is a pay-per-view superstar,” said White while appreciating the ‘Gamebred’.

He also added the #supernecessary at the end. “Thank you to my employer for recognizing my hard work. Only took you 4 years,” wrote Jorge Masvidal.

In his last fight against Tyron Woodley, Paul Knocked out his opponent in the sixth round. That victory was very crucial and it delivered a great message to Paul’s haters in the boxing community.
