Conor McGregor’s allure has reduced quite a bit and Jake Paul knows that very well. Jake Paul offered to pay Conor McGregor $50 million to face him in a boxing match but that is not really a thing anymore. Paul also accused McGregor of ducking him, there’s that to deal with now.
Many fans certainly agree that a boxing match between Conor McGregor and Jake Paul would be a must-see affair. Jake Paul has been hot and cold when it comes to fighting McGregor as well. Following Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano’s recent fight, Jake Paul and Conor McGregor went at it.
After Ireland’s Katie Taylor defeated Puerto Rico’s Amanda Serrano at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Jake Paul and Conor McGregor traded shots online. Paul was present at the highly anticipated event to promote Serrano, and he was interviewed by reporters following the fight.
McGregor tweeted after seeing Paul on the broadcast: “Who the f-ck is this jack-ss in the pink Jimmy saville glasses?”
Paul clapped back: “Im the one who has done more for fighters than you ever have, the one who has won 5 fights in the past 2 years while you have lost 5, the one who isn’t owned by Dana White, the one who made the fight you just watched happen, the 1 who got your hero Katie Taylor paid, that’s who.”
Paul continued: “I mean, of course Conor’s watching to support Katie. We had a little bit of banter back and forth. But of course he always has something to say, but he doesn’t really have a place to talk, right? He hasn’t won a fight in five years. Dana [White] owns him, and I’m the one that got Katie Taylor a big payday and that’s his hero.”
Paul didn’t stop there. When asked about their online interaction, he continued to criticize McGregor in a post-fight press conference. While McGregor has two fights left on his UFC contract, he hasn’t fought since injuring his leg during a fight against Dustin Poirier in July 2021.
