Jake Paul has been really hard on Conor McGregor since Conor called the Paul brothers ‘dingbats’ in an interview. Even after McGregor’s horrific leg break, Jake did not go easy on him at all. And despite the leg-break, Jake is optimistic that the fight between him and the Irish UFC wrestler will happen. The Youtuber-turned boxer said that he is still in talks with McGregor’s team.
Some of you might be aware of what’s going on between Jake Paul and Conor McGregor. The saga began when Conor called the Paul Brothers ‘dingbats’ in an interview. However, in the same interview, Conor said that there could potentially be a fight between him and either of the Paul brothers.
However, Jake Paul definitely did not like Conor calling him dingbats. And so so he posted a picture of McGregor after he got knocked out by Dustin during the fight and wrote in the caption that he had his jeweler made a necklace of this frame, calling it the ‘Sleepy Mcgregor’ chain and it cost him $100,000. Then, in a bid to rub even more salt into McGregor’s wounds, he then gifted the necklace to Dustin Poirier as a gift. Since the leg break, people thought the chances of any fight were over. However, Jake thinks otherwise.
Jake Paul says Conor McGregor fight will happen
The Paul brothers are definitely trying to up their game by stepping into the ring with famous professional boxers. For Logan Paul, it was Floyd Mayweather and for Jake, it’s Tyrone Woodley for now. But, the real prize in his eyes would be a match with Conor McGregor. After the recent events, we were not sure if the fight between Conor McGregor and Jake Paul would ever happen, but Jake is completely optimistic.
Jake recently appeared on Fox Sports’ The Herd with Colin Cowherd, where he talked about the possibility of him fighting McGregor. He said that he is in contact with Conor’s team over a potential bout, saying:
I think it will happen. Look, I’m the money fight for Conor McGregor right now. There is no other fighter right now who is on a bigger level than me that is calling out Conor McGregor and wants to fight Conor. Our team is in touch with his team and there’s talk of it actually happening.
Most people thought it was a joke when Jake first told people about him fighting Conor but he clarified in his interview:
It’s as real as it gets
Conor has not responded to Jake’s statement but e are eager to hear from him.
