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. Jake Paul wants to fight McGregor in a big way and he hasn’t been light on the trolling. McGregor’s UFC 264 loss was also a jolly day for The Problem Child.
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 the Full Send podcast, UFC President Dana White made it clear he doesn’t believe Conor McGregor will ever fight Jake Paul because McGregor is simply too small and it would not be a proper match-up.
“I put the best against the best. He’s calling out Conor. Conor is a 145 pound champion and 155 pound champion. He is f**king way bigger than Conor. He wants attention. He was doing it right before the Conor fight. What does Jake Paul weigh? 200 pounds. He is a big dude. he’s not small.”
Jake Paul had previously stated that he is the ‘money fight’ for Conor McGregor. 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.
