Paul has renewed his rivalry with the UFC boss by weighing in on Ngannou's contract. 

The UFC heavyweight king is set to defend his title against interim champion Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 on January 22. 

​It'll be his last fight on his current UFC deal, with 'The Predator' demanding an increase in pay ahead of his championship clash. 

Asked if he would fight under the terms of an extended contract with the UFC, the 35-year-old replied: "No, I will not fight for $500,000, $600,000 any more.

"I mean, it’s over. It’s over. I just did this. I took this fight for a personal reason, and I want to make sure that regardless, even if it’s unfair, I have been wrongly treated, I can make my case to say I have completed the eight fights. But no."​

Ngannou has expressed his desire to box Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, but a potential move away from the famed Octagon could be delayed due to his champion's clause. 

Paul, who has been vocal over UFC fighter pay, shared his thoughts on Ngannou's situation - calling the MMA promotion a 'f**ked up company.'​​

He also teased an announcement.

The 24-year-old tweeted: "Give this man what he wants Dana. such a f**ked up company to be apart of… I got something coming soon…"​

​'The Problem Child' has been relentless in his call out of White, slamming the way he treats his fighters. 

They've exchanged taunts on social media, with White refusing to respond to the 5-0 boxer's Octagon challenge.
