YouTuber-turned boxer Jake Paul has been busy going back and forth with MMA fighters on social media, especially the UFC fighters in the last year or so including the likes of Conor McGregor and Kamaru Usman. The YouTuber has targeted ‘The Notorious’ one on many occasions and even challenged him to a fight on multiple occasions.

The YouTuber, prior to UFC 264, unveiled a diamond chain that had ‘The Notorious’ one lying down after his loss against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257. It also had him holding his Proper 12 whiskey in hand. Jake also revealed that the chain was worth $100,000.

During UFC 264, Jake was present in the crowd, watching Conor taking on Poirier. ‘The Notorious’ one suffered an ankle break and was subsequently termed unfit to fight further, thus handing Poirier a TKO win.

After the match, Jake offered his $100,000 asset to Poirier as a gift. He wrote, “aye @DustinPoirier want me to ship this to you? $100k gift from me I think you deserve it, lmk.”

To which, the ‘Diamond’ replied, “Send it over”.

Now, Jake has responded to Poirier‘s request. In a retweet, the YouTuber wrote, “gotchu. you want the ankle snapped off or do you wanna do it?”

The YouTuber clearly indicated at the snapped leg of McGregor. It will be interesting to see if ‘The Notorious‘ one, who will be out of action for a while now, responds to the YouTuber in near future.
