Fresh off his savage exhibition knockout of retired New York Knicks star Nate Robinson, the 23-year-old YouTube sensation challenged former two-division UFC champ McGregor to a $50 million bout in an outlandishly disrespectful Instagram video.
"What the f--k is up, you Irish c--t? My team sent you a 50 million dollar offer this morning. Fifty million dollars cash, proof of funds, the biggest fight offer you've ever been offered,” Paul said while clutching a cigar and whiskey glass.
“But, you're scared to fight me, Conor. You're ducking me because you don't wanna lose to a f--king YouTuber. You're 0-1 as a boxer. I'm 2-0 as a boxer."
Paul's post also included a screenshot of the proposed boxing match's terms—eight three-minute rounds at 185 pounds. Before he beat Robinson, he defeated internet celeb KSI's younger brother Deji. McGregor's sole loss was to undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, who has announced that he'll be fighting Jake Paul's older brother Logan.
The younger Paul previously told TMZ he was in communication with McGregor's camp to make the fight. UFC president Dana White said there was "zero chance" it would happen, adding that he'll let "Amanda Nunes knock his ass out." Paul addressed that quote, too:
"Dana White, you're a f--king p---y, too, you ugly f--king bald bitch!" Paul continued. You said there's zero-percent chance this fight happening, but there's zero-percent chance of you getting some f--king p---y."
McGregor is set to return from retirement in a rematch with Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 on January 23, and he hasn't responded to Paul's callout. However, Nate Diaz—another one of McGregor's rivals—did respond.
"Jake Paul u need your ass beat for free," the UFC vet tweeted. "U can’t really fight dumbshit your gonna end up with your ass whooped for real."
When Paul retorted with "You saw what happened to the other Nate," Diaz called for Logan to talk some sense into Jake.
Whether or not McGregor actually takes the bit is up for debate, but plenty of Paul's detractors would undoubtedly love to see him get destroyed in the boxing ring.
