UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal has shared his honest take on Dana White's recent comment about his stature in the famed promotion.

In addressing Jake Paul's wild “challenge,” UFC president Dana White emphasized that Masvidal is indeed a “pay-per-view superstar” in the company.

“You’re calling out Jorge Masvidal because he’s a pay-per-view superstar,” White said when responding to Paul via MMA Fighting. “Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor, Mike Tyson, these guys are all superstars. You’re not. You can’t sell pay-per-views. So you do whatever the hell you want to do. I’m ready to roll, buddy. I don’t use cocaine. Do you use steroids? Let’s do this, Jake.”

White's confirmation apparently was music to Masvidal's ears. But as expected, “Gamebred” responded to it with style.

“Thank you to my employer for recognizing my hard work. Only took you 4 years #supernecessary,” Masvidal wrote on Twitter.


As it stands, YouTube star-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul is still yearning for a fight against Masvidal. The pair has been engaged in a war of words on social media but White has been firm on his stance about the matter.

For White, Paul just want to cash-in on some of the most notable active UFC stars but what he really needs to do is to take on a legitimate boxer.

“No [that’s not happening],” White previously said of Paul's call for a fight against UFC stars via DAZN. “You notice he wants to f—ing fight everybody that’s not in his weight class, guys that are older and all of this other bulls—. Go find a boxer. Go hump somebody else’s leg, you goofball.”
