Jake Paul is trying to get Conor McGregor's attention with a tweet roasting him for his performance against Nate Diaz.
Jake Paul is gearing up to fight Nate Diaz in August but he's never going to miss the chance to roast Conor McGregor.
On Sunday, the morning after McGregor went viral for offering advice to Ryan Garcia after he lost to Gervonta Davis, Paul took to Twitter to poke fun at McGregor.
"Im a better boxer than you Connor and will do what you couldn’t and knock Nate out," Paul tweeted. "After Nate let’s box as the co main event same night as Katie Taylor VS. Amanda Serrano in Dublin. But since you’re not your own boss you will hide behind Dana or just drink the rest of your life away. August 5th you will see."
McGregor fought Diaz twice. The first event, a short-notice affair saw McGregor finished for the first in the UFC via a rear-naked choke. The second fight was a Fight of the Year performance that saw McGregor win via decision.
Paul will fight Diaz in what will be his first fight since leaving the UFC.
Paul's promotion, Most Valuable Promotions, also tweeted about the potential match-up.
"Katie Taylor is the greatest Irish athlete of all time. Amanda Serrano is the greatest Puerto Rican boxer of all time. The rematch in Ireland is massive," they tweeted. "Add Jake Paul and Conor Mcgregor and you just made the biggest fight event in European history."
At press time, McGregor had not replied to the tweets.
