UFC giant Conor McGregor hasn’t responded to Jake Paul’s challenge, despite the latter’s comments on his wife and boxing career.
It seems, the ‘Notorious’ is more interested in serious fights as he is gearing up for the rematch with Dustin Poirier at lightweight, which will headline UFC 257 on January 23.
However, Jake Paul is adamant about fighting McGregor as he already offered him $50 million. But UFC chief Dana White has ruled out the fight. instead, he has offered to let Amanda Nunes battle ‘The Problem Child’.
Well, there’s another YouTuber boxer, who believes anything can happen, and if it does, he bills it as an ‘L’ for Conor McGregor.
KSI, who earlier beat Jake Paul’s brother Logan Paul, recently put his opinion on the whole McGregor-Paul drama.
While he mostly believes McGregor wouldn’t accept the fight, a part of him says he might. In his podcast, KSI cleared out his mind to the netizens.
He said. “Conor ain’t gonna fight Jake (Paul). That’s never gonna happen. Oh bro, actually you know what (laughs). What I realized in this world is that anything can happen.”
KSI added, “One minute, I am like that can never happen, and then it happens. I am there like you know what you never know. But, I highly doubt that it’s gonna happen.”
Other than the hardcore fight fans, many may actually want to see the fight happen. However, KSI doesn’t want McGregor to do it at any cost.
Even if the Irishman wins, KSI doesn’t see it as a monumental victory, but a loss can hurt McGregor dearly.
The YouTuber said, “I think it’s just a bit of a L for Conor (McGregor) if he really takes that fight. You really don’t need to do that. If Conor wins, it’s like big whoop. You beat Jake like that’s not a big deal.”
He continued, “If Conor loses, then f*** hell bro. Like then that’s just f***.”
This potential fight doesn’t seem to be on the cards. Jake Paul might have to look for some other NBA players or YouTubers to take his career to 3-0. He could fight Ben Askren as the former fighter has accepted his challenge.
Conor McGregor will address his future post-UFC 257, but fans are confident that it may not include Jake Paul.
