Paul took the sport by storm when he called out the former UFC double champ after his victory over Nate Robinson. Needless to say, McGregor did not acknowledge him. However, that did not stop Paul from repeatedly targeting ‘The Notorious’.

The 3-0 boxer has now taken to Twitter to clap back at McGregor for his tweet. The Irishman criticized the concept of YouTube boxing when he wrote, “UFC high level fighting > Blogger jacka** boxing.” This tweet from McGregor may have explained why he did not entertain any of the call-outs.

However, this did not go down well with Paul who replied, “Jack Daniels > Proper 12.” 

With this, the internet sensation made yet another personal dig at McGregor. Furthermore, it may draw a reaction from the UFC superstar since he prides his whiskey on being the best in the world.
