Jake Paul insulted UFC celebrity Conor McGregor this week as he continues to push for a battle against the Irishman.
According to TMZ Sports, Paul was on a beach in Miami, Florida, when a plane flew overhead attached to a banner that read”Conor McGregor is scared of Jake Paul.” Paul then said:”Aw yeah, he’s a b–h.”
Paul, who’s fresh off a boxing victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson at November, hasn’t hidden the fact that he wishes to step inside the ring with McGregor.
In December, Paul told Marc Raimondi of ESPN that he is devoting his life to beating McGregor and called himself”one of the biggest prizefighters.”
The 24-year-old YouTuber is only 2-0 as a professional boxer, but he has his sights set high in the shape of one of the biggest celebrities in the history of sports.
McGregor’s only foray to boxing was a loss to undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. at 2017, but he is 22-4 as a professional MMA fighter, and it has held both UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Championships.
While McGregor retired after beating Donald”Cowboy” Cerrone last year, he is back and set for his first fight in a year, as he will face Dustin Poirier in UFC 257 this
