UFC megastar Conor McGregor recently shared a rather unpleasant comment about YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul. It was during an interview with combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani. However, ‘The Problem Child’ didn’t take too kindly to that comment and clapped back at the former double champion in a recent episode of the ‘Impaulsive Podcast.’

Amid the attention garnered by Jake Paul’s upcoming fight with MMA veteran Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor chose his former rival to come out on top. In addition to that, he also called the YouTuber a ‘donkey’.

During his recent ‘Imapuslive’ appearance, Jake Paul mentioned he finds ‘TNotorious’ very funny. He said, “I think Conor McGregor’s funny as f***. He’s hilarious.” However, he did take offense to the fact that McGregor called him a donkey and vows to physically dismantle him whenever he gets the chance. Paul added, “But guess what Conor, I will beat the f***ing f*** out of you and you can’t box as good as me.”

‘The Problem Child’ took a jibe at McGregor by claiming that he will knock his former rival Nate Diaz out, something that the Irishman could never do in his two fights against the Stockton native. The YouTuber said, “I am gonna do to Nate what you couldn’t which is knock him the f*** out.”

‘The Problem Child’ claims to be Notorious’s biggest money fight

Paul also suggested that McGregor should give him a call because he believes he is the biggest money fight for the Irishman, and he will prove that after beating a big name like Nate Diaz on August 5th. He even took a jibe at Dana White by claiming that he makes his own decisions, unlike the former UFC double champion.

“That money fight will always be there and when I knock Nate Diaz the f*** out and you realize I am the biggest fight for you, call me and I will answer. I make my own decisions. I am not controlled by Dana White!… so I can make the fight happen,” said Jake Paul.
