YouTuber Jake Paul has been trying to get mixed martial artist Conor McGregor to meet him in the ring, and he recently escalated matters by cursing out the champion in a short clip that starts with him saying, “What the f— is up, you Irish c—?”
He says this while smoking a cigar, wearing an Irish flag, and sitting in what Business Insider identified as a $350,000 Lamborghini Huracan. Propped up against the car is a giant fake check for $50 million, which is what Paul claims McGregor could win in a match.
“Good morning, Conor McGregor,” says Paul. “I know you’re probably beating up old dudes in a bar right now, or maybe you’re j—ing off because you’re sick of f—ing your wife. I mean, she’s a four, Conor, you could do a lot better. But happy Monday.”
Yes, he dragged McConor’s wife into this mess.
“My team sent you a $50 million offer this morning: $50 million cash, proof of funds,” he continues. “The biggest fight offer you’ve ever been offered. But you’re scared to fight me, Conor. You’re ducking me because you don’t want to lose to a f—ing YouTuber. You’re 0-1 as a boxer. I’m 2-0 as a boxer.”
He also attacked the current President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Dana White.
“Dana White, you’re a f—ing p—- too, you ugly f—ing bald b—-,” he says. “You said there’s 0% chance of this fight happening, but there’s 0% chance of you getting some f—ing p—-.
“Conor, you’re scared. Dana, you’re scared. Sign the f—ing contract, you idiots. Jesus f—ing Christ. Irish b—-. F— these guys.”
Paul has been pushing for this fight for a while, even though it seems like he’s being fully ignored by the actual trained fighter.
The $50 million is coming from an anonymous backer, and Paul says he’d give McGregor money from the event’s pay-per-view sales. They’d be using 10-ounce boxing gloves in over eight three-minute rounds.
Paul is probably correct that lots of people would watch this event. Many of us would like to watch him get what’s coming to him on live TV.
