Conor McGregor’s highly anticipated comeback turned into a dreadful defeat as the ‘Notorious’ got knocked out by Poirier in round 2 of the fight. This went down as one of the biggest upsets in the UFC. On the flip side, Jake Paul who was highly keen on offering McGregor a $50 million fight fired shots at the Irishman.

Ever since Paul’s knockout victory over Nate Robinson, he has called out Conor McGregor several times for a fight. ‘The Problem Child’ tried to get into McGregor’s head in every way possible and took shots at McGregor at several outings and public appearances. He in fact verbally attacked the Irishman through his social handles.

Not only that, but Paul also included McGregor’s teammate, Dillon Danis, in his checklist. He once attacked Danis while he was in Los Angeles, shooting for a documentary.

However, he failed to grab the Irishman’s attention who was preparing for the Poirier fight back then. Hence, fans reckon the former UFC double champ will revert to Paul at least now.
