Conor McGregor remains one of the most well known MMA fighters in the history of combat sports and his accolades over the years speak for themselves. The Notorious is also known to trash talk often, with varied results.
While Conor McGregor has backed up his trash talks in the past, more often than not, they have also resulted in embarrassing defeats for him. McGregor also doesn’t hold any title in the UFC.
For a long time Jake Paul has been going after Conor Mcgregor in order to get him to agree to a boxing match in the future. After UFC 264, Paul’s ego only got worse.
While speaking to Colin Cowherd, Jake Paul talked about facing off against Conor McGregor, as he stated that Paul is the ‘money fight’ for Conor McGregor and that there are talks of it actually happening.
“I think it will happen. Look, I mean, I’m the money fight for Conor McGregor right now. There is no other fighter right now who is on a bigger level than me that is calling out Conor McGregor and wants to fight Conor. Our team is in touch with his team and there’s talks of it actually happening.
And people at first thought I was just joking when I said I wanted to fight him. But now it’s as real as it gets, it’s more real than ever and by the way, if we do fight, I’m going to knock him out.”
Before Jake Paul can focus on Conor McGregor, he has to contend with Tyron Woodley on August 29th as he is undoubtedly Jake Paul’s toughest opponent to date.
