It seems Jake Paul will try out everything possible to attract Conor McGregor’s attention. From calling him out post-fight and putting several videos to mock the Irishman, Paul is making every effort to get into the former double champ’s head. This time he took a shot at McGregor’s teammate, Dillon Danis.

Danis was filming for a show called “Food Truck Diaries by Brendan Schaub”. Paul seemed to be in the vicinity and began hurling water balloons whilst screaming expletives directed towards Danis.

Paul was at the back of a pickup truck while doing this, and Danis rushed towards him for a counter-attack. However, the YouTuber directed the driver to pull away from the place.

The YouTuber turned boxer took to his social media and commented on the incident. He wrote, “Caught the biggest s**t talker slacking @dillondanis, you gotta check-in when you come to La. #GenerousDriveBy,”

As per CBS Sports Network analyst, Luke Thomas, the location, Malka studios in Santa Monica, California, is used by Showtime to film different content. It was on its usual day to film an episode with Danis, and Paul, who caught wind of it, made his presence known.

Jake Paul has been calling out McGregor and Danis post his dominating T/KO win over Nate Robinson on November 28. His latest stunt was just one of many to try to attract the Irishman’s attention. But, will McGregor acknowledge these efforts?

The best trash talker in the UFC, Conor McGregor, is renowned for taking a stand for his teammates and himself. Over the past, we have seen the Irishman firing shots at fighters calling out or mocking him. He attacked a bus at UFC 223 after his teammate was targeted in the build-up to the event.

Even after Paul’s attack on Danis and insults towards McGregor’s fiance, ‘The Notorious One’ seems uninterested in entertaining him. Paul even offered McGregor a whopping $50 million for a boxing match, but the former UFC champion has his eyes set on UFC 257, where he’ll rematch Dustin Poirier.
