Jake Paul has arguably the most important boxing match of his life against Tommy Fury on February 26th. It’s a long-established practice for the former Youtuber to feed on controversy, and it looks like he’s trying to stir up more when he posts pictures of his workout, which appears to closely resemble Conor McGregor.

A move like this isn’t unexpected from someone like Jake as he doesn’t seem to possess much positive creativity. Moreover, such a move seems to be working as, despite all the hate online, many martial arts fans are talking about the topic. Young Paul knows that the more attention he gets, the more money he’s likely to make.
Why is Jake Paul trying to copy Conor McGregor?
The first reason is pretty simple, “Mystic Mac” is still somehow the biggest name in all of MMA. His last significant win was years ago against a beat-up cowboy Cerrone, but fans can’t get enough of the Irishman. He was recently announced as the coach for an upcoming TUF season against “Iron” Michael Chandler.
‘The Problem Child’ also does pretty much everything to build this fight. Tommy’s father John and brother Tyson have been talking about their fighter for a while. The former Vine star didn’t hesitate to take his words against the entire Fury family. He shot “TNT” and his father and said:
“Tommy Fury is scared. Told my team he can’t come to the kick-off press conference in Saudi Arabia next week because he needs more time to practice. Did you think you didn’t even have to train to fight me? You and your dad are scared.”
Jake has also earned a stake in the PFL promotion and many expect him to make the permanent move to MMA regardless of what happens on February 26th.
