Until now, he’s called out Conor McGregor, his teammate Dillon Danis, Ben Askren, and more. He even trained his aim at UFC President Dana White to align any of his big stars with him.

White reverted in his own eccentric way and asserted on sending ‘The Lioness’ of UFC, Amanda Nunes, to knock Paul out. The double champ sponsored White’s thought on smashing Jake Paul. But the American YouTuber was unimpressed with this juncture.

In a recent conversation with TMZ Sports, Paul opened up on the whole idea of not fighting Nunes. He said, “Nah, I wouldn’t fight her, Waste of time. No one knows who she is. There’s not a lot of hype there. Plus, there’s no history.”

Instead of Nunes, Paul took a shot at Dillon Danis and issued a fierce call-out to him again. “I wanna knock out Dillon because we’ve been talkin’ s**t back and forth for 2 years, he’s all b**t-hurt about it, there’s history there.”

He believes there are fights that would offer him big paychecks instead of an Amanda Nunes fight. This is predominantly why he feels a fight with the biggest female fighter of the UFC just isn’t on the cards.

He concluded by adding, “Why would I waste my time doing some bulls**t like (boxing Nunes?). Men should fight men.”

Jake Paul eyes a ‘dream fight’ with Conor McGregor

No matter how many opponents he has on the checklist, Paul is vying to take the former UFC double champion, Conor McGregor. Right after his win against Robinson, Paul has been landing huge verbal shots at the Notorious one. He believes Dillon Danis is his ticket to secure a ‘dream fight’ with McGregor.

Paul even attacked Danis with water balloons and toilet paper in California. He even shelled out an offer worth $50 million for Conor McGregor. He took to his social handle to grab the Irishman’s attention.

McGregor is the best trash talker of the sport and is known for standing up for himself and his teammates. But even after so much noise, Paul hasn’t quite received a response from the Irish powerhouse. Fans believe the YouTuber is far from getting a boxing match with McGregor.

What do you make of Paul’s remarks on Amanda Nunes? Is it finally time for Conor McGregor to revert to Paul in his own style?
