White was asked about Paul’s proposed boxing showdown with former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, which is rumored to be scheduled for late October, at the post-fight media scrum following last night’s Contender Series event. For someone who is typically so critical of Paul, he looked really impressed by his performance against his former middleweight legend:
“I don’t give a sh-t, but, if he’s really fighting Anderson Silva, if he’s really fighting Anderson Silva, if that’s true, it’s about time. He’s got a real fight on his hands there, regardless of how old Anderson is. That’s a real fight.”
“Stop asking me about Jake Paul, you guys,” White said.
“I don’t give a sh-t what Jake Paul does. I know you love this sh-t, but c’mon, this guy has nothing to do with my business. He doesn’t fight for me, he’s not even in the same f—king sport as me.
“I don’t want to talk about him anymore. I don’t care.”
