Jake Paul is banned from Edwards vs Usman UFC fight Is Dana ...
There is a great anticipation ahead of UFC 286, in which Leon Edwards vs Kamaru Usman will be the headline fight. But, Jake Paul isn't so excited and won't be attending the event in London.
That's because he has been banned from attending UFC events and the last one he was able to go to was UFC 261 in 2021, back when Usman knocked out Jorge Masvidal.

With that ban still in place, Jake Paul won't be able to attend UFC 286 at the O2 Arena in London this Saturday.Why is Jake Paul banned by UFC?
The Jake Paul UFC ban was announced by the YouTuber himself, on a podcast.
"I'm banned from UFC events, as Dana banned me after the fans were shouting 'f**k Jake Paul' at one of the stadiums," he said.
"I tried to go to a different fight and all of our tickets were declined, banned.
"The assistant was like 'get the f**k out of here', and then escorted me out of the event."
There have been theories floated that Jake Paul isn't actually banned and that he is making this up to look for attention and continue his long-term feud with UFC president Dana White.Jake Paul's complicated relationship with Dana White
Jake Paul and Dana White have never seen eye to eye, with the former often criticising the latter, calling for him to pay fighters more and to improve health insurance coverage.
All the while, Jake Paul has been taking digs on social media at the UFC president and even released a diss track, in which he accused White of cocaine use.
"Dana, why don't you lay off all that cocaine," was one of the lines in the song, which had a chorus of "f**k Dana, f**k Dana White".
Meanwhile, Dana White has long laughed off Jake Paul's antics.
"Is he still a thing?" White said of the YouTuber recently.
"He's not to me. He's a pay-per-view turd."
Whether Dana White cares enough about Jake Paul to ban him from all UFC events is another matter, though.
