The 25-year-old said, “Look, I don’t have anything to say about that what I do have to say for the Irish is I feel bad for y’ll because this is the start of Katie Taylor’s losing streak just like Conor McGregor. This is the start of her losing streak just like Conor McGregor.”

Notably, the current undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor and the former two-time lightweight champion of UFC, McGregor hails from the same country, Ireland. Which gave an opportunity for the Ohio boxer to roast both.

Jake Paul and Conor McGregor: The ongoing rivalry

Since ‘The Problem Child’ has delivered a stunning knockout against former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, his confidence is at another level. The man had called out superstars of combat sports like Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez.

He is so keen to take a shot at McGregor that he is ready to match up with him in the octagon.

Talking to ‘The Journey’, he stated he was confident of beating McGregor easily. He said, “He’s on the decline. Drunk all the time, lost his motivation, doesn’t really have a reason for why he’s fighting other than his ego and I’m getting exponentially better every single day. So it’s bad for him any way he slices it, that’s why I say I’ll fight him in MMA, because I don’t think he’ll take it in boxing.”

However, after several attempts, Jake Paul could not get a positive response from McGregor’s end. On the other side of the spectrum, McGregor is on the way to return to the octagon after a long layoff. The last he took to was against another UFC legend, Dustin Poirier, and sustained a critical injury in his leg.
