Jake Paul PASSED drug test taken before Tyron Woodley bout amid UFC boss Dana White’s calls for him to prove he is clean

JAKE PAUL was subjected to a pre-fight drug test before his rematch with Tyron Woodley – which he passed with flying colours.

Both YouTuber turned boxer Paul and former UFC welterweight champ Woodley were subjected to urinalysis before their Tampa tussle last month.

And multiple sources have revealed to SunSport the pair’s respective tests ‘produced negative results for all prohibited substances.’

The Florida Athletic Commission didn’t make the test results public knowledge to ‘medical privacy’.

A FAC spokesperson told SunSport: “Both fighters submitted to a urinalysis prior to the bout.

“The Florida Athletic Commission does not release medical or testing results.”

They later added: “The Florida Athletic Commission does not release medical testing information due to medical privacy.

“The penalties for banned substances are defined in Section 548.046 (3)(d) of Florida Statutes.”

Despite showing no signs of performance-enhancing drug use, Problem Child Paul has been dogged by accusations of banned substance use over the last five months.

Last August, renowned mixed martial arts coach Firas Zahabi claimed Paul was ‘definitely’ ‘going to be on PEDs’ for his first encounter with Woodley.

UFC president Dana White recently accused Paul of using steroids in a video responding to the social media star’s demands to compete inside the octagon.

White said: “You publicly stated that I use cocaine. I do not. So I told you, you could randomly cocaine test me for the next 10 years.

“I believe that you’re a cheater and I believe that you use steroids, so I want to randomly steroid test you for the next two years.”

Social media sensation Paul quickly denied White’s allegation, saying in a three-minute-long video: “Dana, I accepted every part of your challenge. I said I would fight [Jorge] Masvidal in MMA.

“Steroid test me whenever the f**k you want. It is two weeks after my fight and I’m a fat b****.

“And I take it as a compliment because there’s no other excuse to me knocking out all your champions [than].’ This kid does steroids.’

“Look at me. Look at that, a fat b****.”

Jake Paul has been dogged by PED use but is adamant he’s never taken steroids

In his brief professional boxing career Paul, 24, has never tested positive for PEDS or anabolic steroids.

Former Disney star Paul stretched his unbeaten record to 5-0 with a stunning sixth-round stoppage of Woodley, whom he fought to a split decision victory last August.

SunSport has reached out to Woodley’s team for comment and are awaiting a response.
