Jake Paul, 24, is making better pay and healthcare for fighters in the UFC his number one concern these days. Paul has called out Dana White and the UFC and gone so far as to say he wants to start a fighters union.

“Yes, there are a lot of fighters, a lot of big fighters in the UFC message me saying, ‘We love this, keep on going but I can’t support this publicly,’” Paul said speaking on ‘The MMA Hour’. “I don’t want them to sacrifice. They have to put food on their family’s table.”

“I don’t need them to support a diss track or anything like that, publicly. Because they’re just gonna f**k themselves over. I don’t want that. I want them to make more money.”

In his latest move, ‘The Problem Child’ has said he’s investing in the UFC’s parent company, The Endeavor Group, in an attempt to help fighters get better pay and healthcare.

“I’ve invested in EDR (UFC) stock with my partner Geoffrey Woo to focus on UFC’s ESG standards relating to fighters,” Jake Paul tweeted on January 25. “We believe EDR can drive long-term economic value by increasing UFC fighter pay & providing them healthcare. Reaching out to @EngineNo_1 to partner on this endeavor.”
