Jake Paul Rips Into Conor McGregor's Technique After UFC Star Posts Video

Jake Paul has taken aim at Conor McGregor, criticising a recent training clip the former UFC champ shared online. You can see the clip here:

McGregor is currently recovering from the broken leg he sustained in his fight against Dustin Poirier last July. 

Earlier this week, he shared a clip showing himself back on his feet and in training again, with a possible return to sparring coming up next month. 

Sharing the footage, McGregor wrote: “Keepin’ it tasty.”

But YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul did not agree, branding the clip ‘embarrassing’. 

Sharing the clip on his own Instagram Stories, Paul wrote: “This is embarrassing. Your chin wide open with no head movement for the Problem Child's right hand of God."

It’s likely Paul is hoping to provoke a reaction from McGregor - having previously made no secret of the fact he’d love to fight the MMA star.

In December 2020, Paul offered McGregor $50 million (£36m) to step into the ring with him, while also attempting to rile him up by insulting long-term partner Dee Devlin. 

In a clip he shared on social media, Paul said: "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.

"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."

And in February this year, McGregor didn’t rule out a potential bout between the pair. 

Asked if he would ever take a fight with Paul, he told the Mirror: "Who knows? Never say never."

He also used the interview to take a swipe at Paul’s pay-per-view sales. 

Speaking about Paul’s December rematch against Tyron Woodley, he told the news outlet: “It only did a couple of thousand buys, I didn't actually watch it I saw it online so no I didn't see it.

"I don't pay attention to that stuff."
