After his fight with Nate Diaz in August, Social Media superstar Jake Paul is prepared to fight Conor McGregor. Later this year, "The Problem Child" is expected to take on the Stockton native.
The two will headline a DAZN pay-per-view event, Jake Paul's first since losing to Tommy Fury in February. The YouTuber-turned-boxer demanded an immediate rematch after his defeat by "TNT" He eventually changed his mind about those remarks and will now compete against Nate Diaz in August.
Before the fight, Jake Paul vowed to defeat the crowd favourite in a way that Conor McGregor was unable to. Nate Diaz has trained with boxing greats like Andre Ward, but this will be his first fight.
“When I knock out Nate Diaz, I think that Conor McGregor’s going to see me, want a payday, and come and get knocked out.” Jake Paul stated in a recent interview.
According to Jake Paul, who spoke with TalkSport, if successful, he intends to move on to the octagon. The YouTuber was then invited to compete against Conor McGregor in the UFC. Jake Paul currently has a contract with the PFL, but Logan Paul, through his PRIME brand, has a tight relationship with the Dana White-led business.
“We can fight in the PFL smart cage, whatever it is. I told everybody I would fight Conor in any form of fight, because, in my opinion, he is that shot. I’ll do MMA, I’m not afraid.”
