Nakisa Bidarian is the Co-Founder of Most Valuable Promotions and is best known as the Jake Paul manager. Lately, Dana White and Jake Paul had heated arguments on social media. On Jan2nd 2022, Jake tweeted “Happy new year @danawhite. Here is a real challenge for you. I will immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to,” and then shared an image which included three points “1) Increase min fighter pay per fight to $50K (its been $12k now), 2) Guarantee UFC fighters 50% of UFC annual revenue ($1bn in 2021), 3) Provide long term healthcare to all fighters (you previously said brain damage is part of the gig…imagine the NFL said that). There are many UFC alums who have publicly said they are suffering from brain damage.” Later, Jake continued “You have 5 days to accept and to implement the above by March 31, 2022. Once implemented I will immediately retire from boxing, enter USADA and agree to a 1 fight deal with UFC to fight weak chin Jorge.” Then, Jake concluded the statement “To all UFC fighters – time to take a stand and create value for yourself and peers. You deserve higher pay, you deserve freedom. Support each other. I am not your enemy, I am your advocate…who selfishly wants to KO a few of you to make some big bank.”
To which, Dana took to Instagram and shared a video and captioned “@jakepaul you never responded to the challenge,” and also in the video Dana said “That thing that you came out with today, nobody on Earth thinks that you really wrote that. You’re too stupid,” and added “You’re tanking. You can’t sell pay-per-views. You’re calling out Jorge Masvidal because he’s a pay-per-view superstar. Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor, Mike Tyson, these are all superstars. You’re not. You can’t sell pay-per-views. So you do whatever the hell you wanna do.” Then, White commented about Nakisa “That guy used to be an accountant for me, and let’s just say this, he no longer works for me and I think he is a sc*mbag, But if you two think that you can do better than we do, that we doing this whole thing wrong, that you can treat the fighters better than we are, knock yourself out, go start your own business.” Later, Jake responded to Dana in two videos.
