After his win over Nate Robinson in 2020, Jake Paul called out many bigwigs of MMA. However, one name that held the top spot on his list was the biggest UFC superstar, Conor McGregor. Until now, Paul has gone after the Irishman frequently, challenging him for a boxing bout.

However, McGregor, who’s in his pursuit to reclaim the UFC lightweight strap, hasn’t quite remained assertive in fighting the YouTuber turned boxer.

Paul, ever since his first call out to McGregor, showed his keenness to take on a boxing bout with the Irishman several times. Last year, he even uploaded a video on his YouTube channel, rolling out a $50 million fight offer for ‘The Notorious’.

McGregor is a fan of banking millions of dollars with his fight activities. However, the above offer given by Paul wasn’t luring enough for the ex-double champ.

Earlier this year, McGregor went after Jake Paul and his brother Logan Paul. He even shed light on the possibilities of him facing either of the two.

Speaking to News Au, he said, “I couldn’t care about them two dingbats.”

“I don’t see so, but never say never.”

“If they’re gonna keep competing and whatnot, who knows?”

“But, dingbats, the two of them.” (h/t talkSPORT)

With this, we can conclude that ‘The Notorious’ might lock horns with ‘The Problem Child’ or his brother. But at the moment, a fight between them just doesn’t seem possible.

Is Jake Paul copying Conor McGregor?

Jake Paul, across his weigh-ins and press events, tries to bring in his best version.

However, many fans have mixed views about Paul’s antics. Many are of the opinion that ‘The Problem Child’ imitates none other than McGregor.
