Jake Paul took extra photographs at Conor McGregor claiming the UFC star ‘doesn’t have the starvation anymore’ and that he’d be ‘approach simpler’ to face than Floyd Mayweather.
The YouTuber has been goading the Irish fighter for a while in an effort to tempt him into what would he a profitable bout.
Paul is because of face former UFC fighter Ben Askren within the boxing ring in April.
That’s not stopped his relentless feedback about McGregor who he says, like Askren, would underestimate him.
Paul is 2-Zero as an expert fighter having crushed fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib after which ex-NBA participant Nate Robinson final yr.
Talking on the I AM ATHLETE podcast, Paul stated: “Conor, Conor is approach simpler than Floyd.
“Conor is approach simpler than Floyd and Conor, similar to Ben Askren is doing at present, Conor will underestimate me, he’ll come into the ring, be like ‘that is a straightforward payday’.
“He simply doesn’t have that starvation anymore, that’s why he obtained starched in his final combat, it’s as a result of he has the whole lot.
“He doesn’t must combat for s*** anymore.”
Jake Paul is the not the primary individual to recommend the fireplace isn’t there for Conor McGregor any extra.
We noticed a way more mellow fighter at UFC 257 the place he was knocked out by Dustin Poirier.
Daniel Cormier stated McGregor wants his edge again in an effort to win a trilogy combat with Poirier, whether or not that combat occurs or not is one other matter.
Within the meantime, Paul will little doubt hold goading the Irishman. The lure of the $50million pay day, if Paul can beat Askren, could also be too good to show down.
A combat with Mayweather is also on the horizon too.
He’s already set to face Jake’s brother, Logan Paul, in an exhibition which is at present postponed.
After this, he needs to combat Jake and rapper 50 Cent.
Mayweather stated: “This yr I’ll deal with a number of exhibitions.
“I’ll have an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan once more. In fact the one with Logan Paul and I.
“And if Jake Paul can get previous his subsequent opponent Ben Askren, I’ll have an exhibition with him as effectively.”
This sparked a confrontation between the 2 on Instagram.
