The YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul, has been a hot topic in the news ever since his rival Conor McGregor lost his stupendous trilogy with Dustin Poirier. The contest between these two took place last weekend, and just like Paul, many other celebrities and athletes were keen to see how McGregor fared in this fight.

The Irishman, unfortunately, broke his leg in the very first round of the fight, losing via T/KO. With that, the former UFC double champ pinned himself on the receiving end of trolls from Jake Paul.

‘The Problem Child’, who even got himself a ‘Sleepy McGregor’ chain worth $100k ahead of the fight, later gifted it to ‘The Diamond’ after his sensational win. Now, the latter has decided to auction this chain to help those in need.

Jake Paul supported this move by Poirier, and he expressed his notions about the same on his Twitter. “Let’s get this thing auctioned for $500k so we actually fulfill Mcgregor’s fake promises,” he wrote.

Earlier this year, McGregor confronted Poirer in a high-voltage rematch. Ahead of the match, ‘The Notorious’ promised to make a donation to The Good Fight Foundation. But a few months later, ‘The Diamond’ asserted that he didn’t receive any help from McGregor.

Citing that, Paul, in his above tweet, cleared that he’d fulfill the promises made by McGregor. This entire anecdote may escalate the feud between McGregor and Paul.

Jake Paul is trying everything to get into Conor McGregor’s head

The 24-year-old has never spared a single chance to mock the Irish MMA icon. Jake Paul has been looking for a fight with ‘The Notorious’ ever since his win over ex-NBA star, Nate Robinson, on the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr undercard.

However, Paul has unquestionably failed to secure this fight because the biggest UFC superstar hasn’t quite entertained him on the same. But without a doubt, ‘The Problem Child’ will continue his verbal assaults on McGregor for a considerable period ahead.
