Conor McGregor has once again reignited his rivalry with Jake Paul. Recently, Jake was in attendance for UFC 261 where the whole crowd was seemingly upset by his presence.
As a result, an echoing roar of ” F*ck Jake Paul, f*ck Jake Paul” could be heard throughout the event. Naturally, a lot of people were not happy with the Youtuber’s presence at the event. Specifically, Dana White, Daniel Cormier, and Conor McGregor.
Even though Conor was not in attendance, he was active on his social media throughout. He shared his reactions, opinions and also took a swipe at Paul on his Twitter. “UFC high-level fighting > Blogger jackass boxing,” he wrote with reference to Jake.

Conor’s social media beef with the Ohio native is well documented. Jake has often been the instigator, constantly provoking McGregor for a boxing match. Whilst Conor often ‘aired’ his advances, he has eventually started hitting back.
Previously, Jake also revealed, “We’re a lot closer to a Jake Paul-Conor McGregor fight than anyone thinks.”He insists that he is now Conor’s ‘money’ fight and his only way to break pay-per-view records.
Will Conor McGregor Box Jake Paul?
Currently, Conor McGregor’s sole focus is on his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier. After having won the first fight at UFC 178, McGregor tasted defeat in the UFC 257 rematch. As such, a victory in the third fight is of utmost importance, to preserve his legacy.
Moreover, Conor has also expressed his interest in fighting welterweight champ Kamaru Usman down the line. He has also indicated that he will likely take another shot at boxing and take on Manny Pacquiao. Hence, Jake Paul has used this to strongarm his way into a fight.
Jake insists that boxing him would probably be easier than fighting Manny Pacquiao and it would be just as big. As such, the social media influencer recognizes the clout and attention a fight with McGregor would draw.
However, with so many challenges awaiting Jake Paul, he will have his hands full before he can fight Conor. If he is to get Conor’s attention, he will need to settle his beef with KSI, Tyron Woodley, and Daniel Cormier first.
