The UFC star Conor McGregor has been the center of attraction for the past few days. This is because, on Saturday night, he will enter the UFC octagon to settle his scores with Dustin Poirier in a high-class trilogy. Also, prior to the fight, McGregor and Poirier participated in a pre-fight press conference where the Irishman launched extensive verbal attacks on ‘The Diamond’.

However, his comments didn’t quite lure the YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul. That said, ‘The Problem Child’ took it on his official Twitter handle to express his notions on ‘The Notorious’.

“You can tell Conor has lost “it”. He no longer speaks from a place of authenticity & you can tell he’s trying to convince himself of his own lies. He takes offense to everything now. He’s bathing in his own insecurity’s. When we fight I will further expose him for the fraud he is,” he wrote.

For a long time now, the 3-0 boxer has shown a massive interest in battling the former double champ of the UFC. Also, over the past few months, he hasn’t left a single opportunity to hit out at McGregor with his fierce comments. After the latter’s recent press conference, ‘The Problem Child’ is even more charged up to fight him at least once.

Jake Paul is hungry to expand his persona in the fight world. And for that, he knows he’ll have to contend with the best fighters in boxing and MMA. That said, in his above comments as well, Paul stayed firm on his call out to the Irishman.

Conor McGregor vs Jake Paul – Will it ever happen?

‘The Notorious’ has set his attention firmly on reclaiming the lightweight title of the UFC. In his last fight, Dustin Poirier derailed his pursuit for the same. But now, the biggest UFC superstar is eager to get back to his old ways.

Considering how he’s molding his career from here on, it’s safe to admit that McGregor won’t fight Jake Paul anytime soon. However, he might do the same only when he claims the 155-pound strap. With that, it’ll be intriguing to see how this rivalry shapes up in the coming few days.
