The past few years have been overflowing with reminders that we live in the dumbest timeline, but the fact that there’s a very good chance Jake Paul will end up exchanging blows with Conor McGregor in a boxing ring at some point in the near future perfectly highlights the absurd nature of our current reality.

It’s safe to say the two men have come a long way since they first burst onto the scene: McGregor has experienced a fairly dramatic fall from grace after establishing himself as one of the most dominant forces in the UFC, while Paul has had one hell of a glow-up since he got his first taste of fame as a Vine Star.

McGregor has spent the past few years clinging to relevancy after losing his grip on the UFC in the wake of the loss he suffered at the hands of Floyd Mayweater Jr. in their infinitely hyped showdown, while Paul has spent a good chunk of that same period successfully pivoting from being the most hated person on the internet to a surprisingly adept boxer who’s currently undefeated as a pro.

In 2020, Paul first teased a potential bout with McGregor, but those plans hit a bit of a hitch when the Irishman broke his leg in his UFC showdown with Dustin Poirier last July. Based on recent reports, McGregor is more concerned with mounting yet another comeback with Dana White’s organization, and on Thursday, he showed off the progress he’s made when he posted a training video on Instagram.

Based on Paul’s reaction, he’s not too impressed with McGregor’s “embarrassing” boxing chops.

Paul would obviously have much more to gain from a fight with McGregor than his opponent would, but when you consider both of them are huge fans of raking in massive amounts of catch, I feel like this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the trash talk that’s in store.
