Conor McGregor thinks Jake Paul isn’t worth fighting in the ring or in the Octagon.
If you bring up Conor McGregor — especially if you’re talking about business — you’re bound to get a response one way or another.
Unfortunately for Jake Paul, it might not have been the kind of answer he wanted.
During an appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Paul was asked about the possibility of a fight with McGregor becoming a reality. The internet celebrity has challenged the former ufc Two-division champion since the beginning of his time in boxing a few years ago.
“I think for me to fight a few more times, keep knocking out some people and he needs to get back into action [before a fight between the two can happen]’ Paul said to Helwani. “Who knows when that will happen?
“I think those two things have to happen, and then eventually it has to happen. Why not? He’s a businessman. I am a businessman. That’s $75 million to $100 million for both of us.”
Conor McGregor taunts Jake Paul and the idea of the two fighting
McGregor wouldn’t deny a payday if he thought a fight was worth it, but it seems he thinks this one isn’t.
Upon seeing footage of the younger Paul brother’s comments with Helwani, McGregor laughed – in two tweets – at the idea of a fight between the two.
After an amateur boxing win in 2018 over Deji Olatunji — as part of KSI’s undercard against Logan Paul, Jake’s brother — Jake Paul turned pro in 2020 with knockouts from YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA star Nate Robinson.
In 2021, Paul would gain momentum in the boxing world with a knockout over Ben Askren and two wins over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley — one by split decision and one by knockout.
Paul will fight Hasim Rahman Jr on August 6 – a fight originally planned as Paul vs. Tommy Fury before travel issues forced Fury out of the fight.
McGregor fought at UFC 264 last year and lost a trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier after breaking his leg in the opening round. McGregor has fought just four times since becoming the UFC’s first champion – counting only UFC fights and not the 2017 boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor – in November 2016 – going 1-3.
