Jake Paul slams Conor McGregor for 'embarrassing' UFC loss to Dustin Poirier and labels rival 'Big Bad Wolf'

VIRAL YouTuber turned professional Boxer Jake Paul has aimed yet another dig at Conor McGregor.

The 24-year-old has been locked in a war of words with The Notorious for months now, and has previously called out the Irishman in a bid to secure a fight against him.

But after McGregor snapped his left tibia and fibula in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier last month, losing via a first-round doctor stoppage, a fight between the pair is not on the cards any time soon.

The Irishman is expected to be out of the ring for up to a year after suffering the horror injury.

That hasn't stopped Paul from continuing his back-and-forth with McGregor though, with the American telling Mirror Fighting: "It's embarrassing.

"The big bad wolf is tumbling down and it's almost sad to see.

"He became such a huge superstar and it's all slipping down beneath him right now."

Those comments come despite Paul claiming back in May that he and McGregor could rake in £72m from a potential fight by selling 3 million PPV's.


The 24-year old is set to face the toughest fight of his short Boxing career later this month, as he takes on former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley on August 29.

Paul has fought just three times as a professional so far, with knockout wins against YouTuber AnEsonGib, basketball player Nate Robinson and former UFC champion Ben Askren to his name. 

And he has the backing of fellow YouTuber turned Boxer KSI to make it four wins from four against Woodley.

He said on YouTube: "I think Jake Paul’s gonna win. Because every time I’ve said Jake Paul’s gonna lose, he wins."

Should Paul defeat the 39-year-old UFC legend, he has some of the biggest names in fighting in his sights.

He revealed 13-man boxing 'hit-list' on Instagram this month which includes Conor McGregor himself, Tommy Fury and even his own brother Logan Paul.

Speaking to SunSport days before uploading the post, Paul revealed the list grows after each fight, and has some unnamed rivals yet to be included.

He said: "It sort of changes and moulds as I go fight by fight.

"But I guess, Canelo Alvarez, Kamaru Usman, Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, you know, KSI will always be on that list, be who knows what will happen there.

"Tommy Fury's on that list, I feel like I'm forgetting names but there's some fighters I'm thinking of right now that I don't even want to mention as it's not worth giving them the clout to.

"I think after this fight, I'm going to go back to the drawing board and re-up the list and actually write it down, that's a good idea."
