And after hearing about heavyweight champion Ngannou’s latest wage claims, Paul sent another message in the manner of the veteran promoter.

He tweeted: “Give this man what he wants, Dana.

“A company so grieved to be a part of… I have something coming soon…”

Ngannou, 34, was at odds with the UFC brass ahead of the New Year’s start, with White publicly telling him he was free to leave the promotion once his contract expires.

The pair, however, had talks in the clear.

But The Predator has no plans to extend his stint in the first MMA promotion under the current terms of his contract.

He told ESPN: “I won’t fight for $ 500,000, $ 600,000 anymore,” I mean, it’s over. It’s finish. I just did that.

“I took this fight for a personal reason, and I want to make sure that whatever it is, no matter how unfair I was treated badly, I can make my case to say that I finished all eight fights. But no. “

Heavyweight Ngannou is aiming for a multi-million pound boxing salary and has publicly flirted with a fight against WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

The Cameroonian hopes to make a new deal with the UFC brass to allow him to box as well.

He said: “We’ve been having this discussion for over a year, and it looks like they were okay with it.
