Dana White Pushes Back Against Jake Paul's Criticism Of Claressa Shields: "Shut The F*ck Up You Goofball"

UFC President Dana White came to two-time Olympic gold medalist boxer Claressa Shields' defense against YouTuber Jake Paul's recent criticism of her.

Shields suffered the first loss of her MMA career on Wednesday night's 2021 PFL Championship event, dropping a split decision to Abigail Montes. Paul was quick to rush to social media and sent a tweet out that called the former Olympian and undefeated three-division world champion a loser. Well, White wasn't a fan of these comments when he was asked what he thought of them in an interview with MMA Fighting's Jose Youngs, responding with the following about Paul's take on Shields.

“He better be careful, she might knock him out,” White said (h/t MMA Fighting). "So Jake Paul calls Claressa Shields a loser? Claressa Shields is nothing but a winner who actually fought real people in her weight class in her own age in her own sport and then goes over to MMA and tries to win a world title. That’s not a loser, that’s a winner, okay? When are you gonna start fighting somebody your own f*cking age, your own weight, that actually fights in your own f*cking sport that you’re claiming you’re in? Shut the f*ck up, you goofball. For you to call Claressa Shields a loser is f*cking unbelievable. Nothing but respect for Claressa Shields. To be looked at as the best female boxer and to come over here and start training and start to do this, not easy, and nothing but respect for her. She lost a split decision? Which is even more impressive, in her second fight she loses a split decision, which means one of the judges thought she won the fight. Nothing but respect for her and she should just keep plugging along and keep training and doing what she’s doing. Obviously, she’s a very talented, gifted athlete. Crazy that anybody’s saying anything to her, that’s ridiculous. I hope he runs into her somewhere and she knocks him the f*ck out."
