Jake Paul has unloaded on Dana White, accusing the UFC president of having a "cocaine issue".
This feud between outspoken YouTuber Paul and UFC boss White has been brewing under the surface for a while now.
The duo simply do not like each other and have been going back and forth in press conferences and on social media for what seems like months now.
But it seems their bitter feud has taken a rather dark turn with Paul claiming white likes to indulge in the old Colombian marching powder which "everyone knows about" apparently.
"I think it's personal for him," Paul told Graham Bensinger.
"He's this old guy that is clearly a control freak and I'm the only one who can get under his skin."
When discussing his viral Halloween costume, Paul added: "Yeah with the coke smeared across my face and the coke bag with 'UFC - Unlimited Free Cocaine' because everyone knows about Dana's coke issue and all the hookers and s**t.
"I'm just a young kid having fun. Dana has the audience that I want, so he doesn't realise that he's just playing into my game.
"I have the YouTube audience, digital, TikTok and all that. What I want is the fight fans who will pay $60, $70, $80 to see me fight. All he's doing it making me 10 times more relevant in that space by playing my game."

For boxing and mixed martial arts purists, Paul's arrival on the scene isn't exactly welcomed.
But for the average joe sports fan, they seem to absolutely adore him.
Either way, it's hard to deny that the 24-year-old hasn't made an impact in his time in the sport.
Having already beaten Tyron Woodley earlier this year, he must now take on the former UFC champion again in a highly anticipated rematch this weekend.
But Woodley isn't the only MMA fighter that Paul has his sights set on.
Whenever he gets in front of a microphone, Paul can't help but mention his desire to lock horns with UFC megastar Conor McGregor - although the Irishman's employer has been quick to shut it down.
"I think Dana White is obstacle No.1 [in making a fight happen with McGregor]," Paul added.
"If Dana would ever let Conor out of his contract to set up the boxing match, I think that's what is needed to make it happen.
"And I think that will, I think it will happen and if Conor is going to just continue to lose fights - he's 1-4 in the past five years - then there's not much Dana will be able to do with him anyway.
"So cash him out one more time, but his manager is good friends with my manager and another one of my advisors and they talk constantly about making it happen.
"They're like, 'yeah we're down, we're about it'."
