Jake Paul’s feud with MMA star Conor McGregor is hotting up once again after the Irishman lost his third fight against Dustin Poirier on Saturday night.

With McGregor suffering a gruesome ankle injury at the UFC 264 bout, the match ended with a doctor stoppage – much to the delight of Paul who’s been looking to fight ‘Mystic Mac’ for some time now.

In December, the YouTuber uploaded a video titled “My $50 Million Dollar Offer to Conor McGregor”, in which Paul could be seen in his car next to a giant cheque addressed to the sportsman.

“Good morning, Conor McGregor … My team sent you a $50m offer this morning … 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**king YouTuber,” said Paul.

The American remains undefeated in his boxing career, having won matches against former basketballer Nate Robinson, ex-mixed martial artist Ben Askren and fellow YouTuber Deji Olatunji.

Now, after McGregor’s latest loss, the former Disney Channel star has taken to social media to make several tweets mocking him:

Paul even had a $100k chain made of an injured McGregor, before offering his rival just $23 to fight him:

However, much like McGregor after his fight with Poirier, Twitter users pointed out that Paul didn’t have a leg to stand on:

In addition to calling out McGregor, Paul has also taken aim at Olajide ‘JJ’ Olatunji – known online and in the music scene as KSI – who also remains undefeated as a boxer.

Speaking in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel in April, KSI said: “Best believe, when I get in that ring, I’m knocking him out, okay? Fully knocking him out.

“I will be fighting Jake, especially after I finish smashing the music scene. I’ve got a good momentum going with the music, so I don’t really want to stop all of that just to fight this pr**k.”
