With his performance that night, Poirier impressed one and all including Jake Paul, who decided to send him a gift. ‘The Problem Child’ got himself a $100k ‘Sleepy McGregor‘ chain, which he gifted to Poirier.

Taking it to his Twitter, Paul shared a picture of the chain alongside a note for ‘The Diamond’. He wrote, ”

Despite failing, he hasn’t stopped in his efforts to get McGregor’s attention.

Will Jake Paul ever get to fight Conor McGregor?

Conor McGregor seemed devastated after his loss to Poirier. And it looked as if he’d be keen to get that revenge over anything else for now.
