Ever heard of fantasy football? Well, you have now. Fantasy football, in a nutshell, is a game in which the player makes a hypothetical team from real-life football players. One gets to compete against another’s players who have set up their own team. For the past two weeks, Garry and Paul have been going at it in the game. But it appears that the Irishman has gotten the edge. In a post made by Betr, Paul’s company, Garry states, “What is the percentage of me beating Jake Paul? Well, according to fantasy football, it is 99%. Yeah!”

In the video, Garry appears to be at an airport. Although the game is a friendly banter between the two, the 25-year-old was evidently pleased with the fact that he was leading the scorecards. However, do you ever wonder, how did they become friends despite hailing from different sports?

If you didn’t know already, Paul’s company, Betr, partnered up with Garry in August of this year. Betr, in essence, is a sports betting platform, founded only a year ago with his manager. Their association may come as a surprise to you given Paul’s animosity towards McGregor and Garry’s respect for the “double champ.” However, the fact is Garry and Paul are now business partners. On his social media, Garry announced the decision saying, “Thrilled to announce I’m joining the @Betr and @Betrcombat family.” He added, “Time to take over the entire industry.”

One may have distinct opinions about their association. However, we are curious to know, what you make of this partnership. In addition, do you think it can hamper the young fighter’s relationship with McGregor? Share with us your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.
