Jake Paul opens up on Conor McGregor
The YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer Jake Paul is often seen taking shots at ‘The Notorious One’. Paul had been taunting the Irishman for quite some time now after he conceded two losses to arch-rival Dustin Poirier, most recently at UFC 264. Khabib ‘Attacked’ By UFC Fan In Sad Video
While in conversation with True Geordie, Jake Paul offered his two cents on McGregor’s gradual decline and his inability to accept the loss for what it is – a learning curve.
“It’s a guy who was king for so long, and he’s been dethroned, and his ego can’t handle it. You see the real Conor McGregor come out, and his identity is broken, and he’s just sort of holding on for dear life. His ego’s taken a hit, and he doesn’t like it. That’s what you see here,” asserted Jake Paul.
However, he believes that ‘Notorious’ is gradually losing his stability in combat sports due to his antics. Talking about the same, he highlighted the contrast in the progression of their careers:
“I still think it is one of the biggest fights that could happen in the fight world today. But, you know, if he keeps on this path, it’s just not going to look good for him. You know, he’s going down, I’m going up. It’s funny when I first called him out, people were like, ‘He’ll kill you. It’s easy.’ And then like, now, I think Tyrone Woodley is a harder fight than McGregor,” declared Jake Paul.
