Jake Paul didn’t mince words in his most recent Twitter beatdown of Conor McGregor.
Addressing rumors of a possible future bout against the Irish MMA star on Monday, Paul acknowledged the fight will likely happen at some point due to the expected colossal cash incentives, adding that McGregor is a “businessman.”
McGregor apparently didn’t agree with Paul’s remarks, immediately taking to Twitter to shut down the 25-year-old social media star and boxer.
“You’ve two fights and done 70K buys,” McGregor wrote. “You a flop, kid. A nobody.”
Paul didn’t take kindly to McGregor’s diss, going to Twitter himself to launch a string of verbal insults at the former two-division UFC champion.
“Conor, Conor, Conor,” Paul began his two-minute tirade. “You’re more active on Twitter than you are in the Octagon. Stop taking trenbolone and start taking fights.
“You’re more actively cheating on your wife than you are in the Octagon. Your priorities are mixed up, put down the bottle and get back to fighting. You haven’t won a fight in five f–king years and the last time you did was against [Donald] ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, who hasn’t won a fight against anyone since fighting you.”
Taking special offense to McGregor’s “nobody” comment, Paul compared the 33-year-old’s rise to stardom to his own – which has taken far less time and garnered far more cash early on.
“I’m just a f–king kid from Ohio, I really am a nobody,” Paul said. “But this is where you fought your sixth fight, there’s literally two people in the crowd. And this is where I’m gonna be fighting my sixth fight, Madison Square Garden — the mecca of boxing. Aug. 6, I know you’ll be watching, kiddo.
“Here’s another fun fact, in your 18th fight, you made $150,000,” Paul continued. “In my fifth fight, I made $15 million.”
Paul ended his rant with one last jab, sharing a video of what appears to be McGregor sharing a bed with an unknown woman that isn’t his wife.
“You have a lot to say about me but I’m sharing millions of dollars with underpaid fighters while you’re sharing hookers with [UFC President] Dana White,” Paul added. “Oops, I’m sorry Conor, I know your PR team is trying to hide that video.”
McGregor continues to recover from a broken leg he sustained in a trilogy bout against Dustin Porier at UFC 264. Perhaps he’ll need more time to recuperate after this recent verbal beating.
As for Paul, the Youtuber-turned-boxer will face Hasim Rahman on Aug. 6 at Madison Square Garden.
