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.
He took to his official Twitter handle to mock McGregor on his disheartening loss. ‘The Problem Child’ wrote, “AYE @thenotoriousmma INSTEAD OF $50 MILLION I GOT $10,000 for you now😂😂😂 CASH THO!! ALL CASH😂😂”
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.
Despite not getting a response, Jake Paul persisted with his agenda and ensured that no one forgot that he wanted to fight Conor McGregor. As expected, he followed the action within the Etihad Arena closely, and what he saw could be a sign that he may just get his fight.
The UFC star has already showcased his interest in coming back to boxing and competing yet again. Hence, Paul wants to capitalize on the same juncture and wishes to touch gloves with McGregor in the squared circle.
It will be interesting to see what has McGregor planned for the rest of 2021. More than anyone else, Paul will be eager to hear his fight plans for the future.
Should McGregor go for a fight with Jake Paul? What do you make of ‘The Problem Child’s remarks following the former UFC champion’s defeat to Dustin Poirier?
