Jake Paul BANNED from attending Leon Edwards world title fight against Kamaru Usman at UFC 286 after Dana White row | The Sun
JAKE PAUL is BANNED from attending all UFC events including Leon Edwards' title fight with Kamaru Usman in London.
Edwards defends his welterweight strap against Usman in a trilogy decider tonight at the O2 Arena after his head kick KO in August.
Conor McGregor, 34, revealed he could be in attendance as he eyes a shot at the 170lb belt.
But one man who will not be in town is YouTuber-turned boxer Paul, 26, who has long rivalled UFC boss Dana White.
The American was at UFC 261 in April 2021 and hit the headlines after the arena was filled with chant of "f*** Jake Paul."
But according to the man himself, UFC president White was left fuming and banned him from ever attending events again.

Paul said on his podcast last October: “I’m banned from UFC events.
"Dana banned me after [the fans] were shouting 'f** Jake Paul in a stadium,' and I tried to go to a different fight and all of our tickets were declined, banned."
Paul has hit out at White in the past and accused the promoter of underpaying his stars and failing to provide them with healthcare.
But his older brother Logan, 27, recently signed a deal to see his Prime hydration drink sponsor the UFC.

Although Logan recently claimed Paul's feud with White is not personal.
He said: "Again, you're just playing a game, and here's my theory: if Jake is able to identify a target to further his agenda of fighter pay, [that's] the way to do it.
"Like, if you can identify a common enemy, unite everyone against that person, [then] you're furthering your own agenda."
