The YouTuber-turned-boxer responded to a number of the Notorious’s tweets, which were off the back of an interview in which Paul said the fighter ‘needs to get active again’.
In two separate messages, McGregor said ‘you’ve 2 fights and done 70k buys’ and ‘You’re a flop, kid. A nobody’.
Never one to back down from an online war of words, Paul said: “Conor, 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 ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone who hasn't won a fight against anyone since fighting you.”
He also pointed out that while McGregor made $150,000 for his 18th fight, Paul’s fifth match earned him $15 million.
Perhaps one of the key reasons for this fighting talk is because Paul knows how much value there would be in the pair facing off in the ring.
The YouTuber has long been angling for a fight with the Notorious but, as yet, he hasn't managed to make it happen.
But you can’t knock his efforts to get McGregor riled up, having previously listed the reasons why he thinks he would win.
Paul finished up his aside by saying: “Last year, I won knockout of the year - you're just getting knocked out.
“Fix your calcium deficiency, stop breaking your bones and let's get in the f**king ring and make $200 million…
“We're just not on the same level. I'm my own boss. Yeah, you made $100 million when you fought Floyd, but Dana took half of it.”

He continued: “I would s**t on you, Conor. Put the bottle down, get off of Twitter, get back in the ring and shut the f**k up. I'm gonna put you back on a leash. F**k you, Conor.”
Yikes. Whether or not this talk will lead to a showdown between the two is yet to be seen, but something tells us McGregor will have something to say about Paul’s latest outburst.
