UFC President Dana White Confirms Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul PPV Buys After Jake Paul Dig

UFC president Dana White revealed that Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul did a million pay-per-view buys after taking a brutal swipe at Jake Paul.

Paul and Mayweather clashed in their lucrative eight-round exhibition fight earlier this month at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

According to earlier reports, Mayweather walked away from the Paul clash with a hefty $25m from pay-per-view sales thanks to his 50 per cent share.

White previously hit out at the Mayweather vs Paul bout by saying that it "wasn't a f*****g boxing match" and there is "always going to be a market for that kind of stuff."

The 51-year-old UFC chief has no love lost for Paul's younger brother as he has questioned the 24-year-old's PPV sales numbers for Triller Fight Club.

Speaking at his UFC 263 post-fight press conference on Saturday, White said: "Jake, the other brother? He didn't do a million [buys].

"His brother [Logan] did a million. Him and Floyd did a million.

"So, last time we had a press conference I told you all the Triller stuff was a bunch of bulls**t. They're lying.

"The numbers... Those guys [Logan and Floyd] really did that number. That's a real number. They did that.

"Jake didn't do that. Logan and Floyd did, and good for them. That's a real number, they really did that and good for them."

The YouTuber-turned-boxer has notched up a 3-0 professional boxing record since his debut against YouTuber AnEsonGib in January 2020.
