On being asked whether he’d prefer the boxing ring or the MMA octagon, Paul further intensified his daring proposal. “I’ll do MMA. I’ve wanted to do that my whole career. I’m a wrestler background so all I’d have to learn is some Jiu Jitsu and some kicks which seems pretty easy to me.”
While we wait in anticipation for McGregor’s response, it’s clear that Paul’s defiant call-out has captivated fans and critics alike. But the question remains, will McGregor step up to Paul’s challenge? And more importantly, will this fight prove to be the payday Paul anticipates?
