After defeating Nate Diaz by unanimous decision on Saturday night, Jake Paul was asked if there was any chance he would ever fight Conor McGregor.
McGregor, as fight fans know, has basically turned himself from one of the best MMA fighters in the world into a complete circus sideshow, so a fight between him and Jake Paul makes some sense in the world we currently reside.
Somewhat surprisingly, Jake Paul dismissed Conor McGregor as a possible opponent.
“I don’t care about that guy,” Jake Paul said. “He needs to go to rehab.”
McGregor would later go on to write several tweets aimed at Paul (most of which he later deleted).
“Paul is a retard,” Conor McGregor would write in a tweet talking about how he was going to beat up Nate Diaz in their “trilogy” fight.
“Buddy you need to get into rehab and then USADA,” Jake Paul replied. “Until then shut the f*** up. Floyd toyed with you. Dustin chinned you up. Khabib and Nate choked you out. And I would put you in the coffin for good even as juiced up as you are.”
Paul then tweeted, “Cocaine Conor coming for me? Say no to drugs kids or you may end up in a bathroom with a woman who isn’t your wife,” in response to another tweet McGregor later deleted which read, “Shut up you little baldy wigger hahahah.”
Good boy deleting your tweets Conny. Hit me once you get out of rehab or jail.

“I see people bent out of shape bc McGregor called me a “wigger”. It’s the fight game,” Paul replied. “I don’t give a f*** about what a coked out, juiced up, s***** cheap whisky drinking fool says & then deletes. He’s a selfish, self-centered, salty drug addict who hasn’t done anything for other fighters.”
So… what are the odds that a Jake Paul and Conor McGregor fight happens at some point in the next two years? Fifty-fifty?
