Jake Paul doesn’t appear to be done with taking shots at UFC star Conor McGregor. ‘The Notorious’ will face Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 264 this weekend. Following a brief banter on social media, Paul, who continues to belittle the Irish MMA fighter, has found new ways to mock him.

The American star took to social media and grabbed himself a part of the UFC 264’s spotlight with a cheeky message. The 24-year-old posted a picture of Conor McGregor’s humiliating KO from UFC 257 and claimed that he had his jeweler make a necklace of a similar frame. Although Paul hasn’t revealed his showpiece, he has vowed to do so shortly.

“I had my jeweler custom make me a $100,000 dollar diamond necklace of this frame Reveal tomorrow,” wrote Jake Paul on Twitter.

 

Meanwhile, McGregor, who hasn’t reacted to Paul’s uncanny statements, hasn’t ruled out the possibility of him facing the YouTuber. However, Conor McGregor is solely focused on his UFC career as of now. After the scratchy KO defeat at UFC 257, it’s a must-win situation for the Irishman. Furthermore, the fight would also seal his rivalry with Dustin Poirier which stands at 1-1 right now.

Hene, Conor McGregor cannot afford to distract himself from the nearing goal. However, the aftermath of the fight can still not interest him in facing Paul as the winner at UFC 264 would get a shot at Charles Oliveira’s lightweight title.

Will Jake Paul get his shot at the bigger names?

After a successful run of 3-0 in pro boxing, Paul is now gearing for the toughest test of his career. He will face former UFC welterweight titlist, Tyron Woodley, on August 21 in a SHOWTIME PPV. Although Paul still hasn’t faced a single professional boxer, a win against Woodley might put him in a higher position.
