Fresh off a viral knockout on the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card, YouTube star Jake Paul is turning up the heat on Conor McGregor.
After calling out McGregor – and Dillon Danis – in the wake of his knockout of Nate Robinson, Paul continued his PR campaign to get the the former two-division UFC champion to fight him. Seated in a blue sports car outside a mansion and draped in an Irish flag, Paul spoke beside a mock $50 million check he claimed was offered to McGregor, who’s currently under contract with the UFC and slated to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.
In a profane rant, Paul made it clear there are no boundaries on his trash talk in a video that had garnered 1.2 million views at the time of this writing.
“What the fck is up, you Irish cnt?” said Paul, smoking a cigar. “Good morning, Conor McGregor. I know you’re probably beating up old dudes in a bar right now, or maybe you’re jacking off because you’re sick of f*cking your wife. I mean, she’s a four, Conor. You could do a lot better – but happy Monday!
“My team sent you a $50 million offer this morning – $50 million cash, proof of funds – the biggest offer you’ve ever been offered. But you’re still scared to fight me, Conor. You’re ducking me ‘cause you don’t want to lose to a f*cking YouTuber. You’re 0-1 as a boxer. I’m 2-0 as a boxer. I just came off the eighth biggest pay-per-view event in history, but you want to fight Dustin ‘Prober’ who has less followers on Instagram than my (expletive) dog – that’s a fact.
“And Dana White, you’re a fcking pssy, too, you ugly, fcking bald btch. You said there’s zero percent chance of this fight happening, but there’s zero percent chance of you being in some fcking pssy. Conor, you’re scared. Dana, you’re scared. Sign the fcking contract, you idiots. Jesus fcking Christ…Irish btch…fck these guys.”
White recently told TMZ that Paul, the younger brother of YouTube star Logan Paul, had “zero chance” of fighting Conor McGregor despite the success of the Tyson vs. Jones Jr. event, which reportedly garnered 1.6 million pay-per-view buys, according to its promoter. In the wake of the unexpected PPV hit, Logan Paul announced a boxing match with former McGregor opponent and undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather.
White has said there is a marketplace for what are widely called “freak show fights,” but he is in the business of finding and promoting the best MMA fighters in the planet.
McGregor has yet to reply to Paul, but that didn’t stop the ex-champ’s longtime rival Nate Diaz from stepping in between them.
