If you have ever wanted to punch a YouTube star in the face, you are going to have to get in line … behind Conor McGregor.
The UFC champ is being provoked by a punk. YouTuber Jake Paul wants to fight McGregor on pay-per-view. According to his Instagram post, he’s offering McGregor $50 million to fight him in the boxing ring.
Among the many things he said in the 58-second video, Paul rated McGregor’s wife at a mere “four” and said, “I know you’re probably beating up old dudes in a bar right now, or maybe you’re jacking off because you’re sick of f*&%ing your wife.”
The camera pans to reveal a check for $50 million. Paul goes on to say, “My team sent you a $50 million offer this morning – the biggest offer you’ve ever been offered, but you’re still scared to fight me, Conor.”
In the video, Paul draped in an Irish flag – cigar in hand – and continued, “I just came off the eighth-biggest pay-per-view event in history, but you want to fight Dustin ‘Prober’ [Poirier], who has less followers on Instagram than my f–king dog. That’s a fact.”
While it’s true that Paul has more than 20 million subscribers and 6.8 billion views on YouTube (we are unclear on how many followers his dog has), his last fight was against Nate Robinson – a basketball player.
Jake Paul is worth an estimated $17 million, give or take whatever he claims to have made in his last fight.
Conor McGregor has an estimated net worth of $120 million – that includes the roughly $100 million payday he earned from his August 2017 fight against Floyd Mayweather.
No word on whether McGregor has any plans to fight Paul, in a ring, in the Octagon, or on a street corner.
