Jake Paul mocks Conor McGregor with insulting $10,000 fight offer after KO defeat
It didn’t take long for Jake Paul to clown Conor McGregor after the latter’s TKO defeat at the hands of Dustin Poirier in UFC 257 on Saturday night. The controversial YouTube star took to Twitter to offer The Notorious an insulting $10,000 fight offer–all in cold cash–in the aftermath of McGregor’s second round loss.
As seen on the video below, Paul and his crew were laughing at the sight of the Irishman laying dazed on the canvas.

For context, Jake Paul initially called out to fight Conor McGregor for $50 million. The 24-year-old’s confidence must be sky high, especially after he obliterated ex-NBA player Nate Robinson in a one-sided affair.
He even challenged UFC President Dana White to make the match happen. White, however, wasn’t having any of that, saying there is “zero” chance that happens. Instead, the 51-year old suggested he let current women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes teach him a lesson.
Paul currently holds a 2-0 professional boxing record, while the UFC star lost his lone boxing match in a mega-showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. back in 2018.
McGregor has yet to respond to any of Paul’s wild antics and challenges. Perhaps if he sees the troubled internet personality making fun of him, maybe The Notorious will just spend a bit of his energy in doing so.
McGregor did note in his post-fight interview that he still intends to get back into the lab as he gets his legs back beneath him in the UFC Octagon. The 32-year old admitted he didn’t feel comfortable during the fight as a result of being away from the sport for extended periods over the last three years.
