Conor McGregor Responds To Calls For Him To Fight Jake Paul

It seems Conor McGregor has responded to calls for him to fight YouTuber Jake Paul and we're sorry to say - it ain't looking likely.

The 32-year-old MMA fighter took to Twitter earlier today (25 April) to say that 'UFC high level fighting' is superior to 'blogger jacka** boxing', so we're gonna say it's probably a no from him.

Jake Paul, 24, has been pestering McGregor to fight and even insulted his fiancée, Dee Devlin (in a bid to get a reaction, we're sure).

Back in December, the YouTuber offered the Irish UFC star $50 million (£36m) to step into the ring with him.

In a video, Paul says: "Good morning, Conor McGregor. I know you are probably beating up old dudes in a bar right now or maybe you are jacking off because you are sick of f***ing your wife right now because she is a four."

He went on to add: "Conor you could do a lot better. But happy Monday. My team sent you a 50 million dollar offer this morning, 50 million dollars cash, proof of funds, the biggest fight offer you've ever been offered, but you are scared to fight me Conor, you are ducking me because you don't want to lose to a f****** YouTuber.

"You are a 0-1 as a boxer, I'm 2-0 as a boxer. I just came off the eighth biggest pay-per-view event in history, but you want to fight Dustin Prober (Poirier) who has less followers than on Instagram than my f****** dog, that's a fact."

Conor kept quiet and didn't react to Paul's taunts, until now anyway.

Responding to McGregor's recent post, one person wrote: "Conor... you literally got your a** beat in boxing....... are you SURE you want to talk s***? Like come on man at LEAST win a f***ing fight then talk s*** on another sport."

Another added: "Can you take the Jake Paul fight just so we can see him get snapped in half please? Kid needs humbling."

While a third wrote: "He's only comparing high level fighting against blogger boxing ffs! Everyone calm down! When u saw that fight card last nite. Reality hits home MMA fighting is high level fights. The blogger boxing is a joke."

Another fan had a suggestion for Paul: "If Jake Paul just wants to make some serious money he should organise a fight against an actual boxer, because everyone would pay serious money to see that absolute w***er get knocked clean out.

"Makes you laugh how he thinks he's a decent boxer when he's fighting bums."
