Jake Paul’s ongoing feud with Conor McGregor just went to another level.
Paul has fired back at Conor McGregor’s recent comment that the YouTube star is a “nobody” and a “flop.” McGregor was responding to Paul’s claims that a fight between the pair would make them $100 million each.
Talking up the fight during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour, Paul told host Ariel Helwani: “I think for me, fighting a couple more times, continuing to knock some people out, and he [McGregor] has to get active again, who knows when that’s gonna happen? I think those two things need to happen, and then at some point, it’s gotta happen.
He continued: “You know, why not? He’s a businessman, I’m a businessman, and that’s $75 to $100 million for both of us.”
McGregor found that to be hilarious as he fired back: “You’ve [had] 2 fights and done 70k buys.”
“You are a flop, kid. A nobody,” McGregor followed up.
Never one to back down from an online war of words, Paul said: “Conor, you’re more active on Twitter than you are in the octagon, stop taking trenbolone and start taking fights.
“You’re more actively cheating on your wife than you are in the Octagon. Your priorities are mixed up, put down the bottle and get back to fighting.
“You haven’t won a fight in five f**king years. And the last time you did was against ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone who hasn’t won a fight against anyone since fighting you.”
The YouTuber has long been angling for a fight with the Notorious, but Dana White does not like him and wouldn’t allow it to happen no matter how much money was at stake.
Paul finished up his aside by saying: “Last year, I won knockout of the year – you’re just getting knocked out.
“Fix your calcium deficiency, stop breaking your bones and let’s get in the f**king ring and make $200 million…
“We’re just not on the same level. I’m my own boss. Yeah, you made $100 million when you fought Floyd, but Dana took half of it.”
