Jake Paul in astonishing rant at Conor McGregor and boasts about net worth after UFC star brands YouTuber a ‘nobody’

J

JAKE PAUL has launched a scathing attack on Conor McGregor – and he’s claimed to be richer than the UFC’s poster boy.

The YouTuber turned boxer found himself on the receiving end of a trolling from The Notorious on Monday night after once again calling for a lucrative showdown.

MMA superstar McGregor laughed off the call-out, branding Paul a “flop” and mocking the pay-per-view numbers for his last two fights.

But that criticism only prompted an eviscerating x-rated rant from Jake Paul, who trolled the Irishman over his broken leg and his slump in form.

The Problem Child said: “You shouldn’t have f****d with me, Conor. This is my game. There’s a new king in town. I’m running s**t now.

“Last year, when I won knockout of the year, you were getting knocked out.

“Fix your calcium deficiency – not breaking bones – and let’s get in the f*****g ring and make $200million.

“Conor, no matter how you slice it, we’re just not on the same level. I’m my own boss. Yeah, you made £100m when you fought Floyd [Mayweather], but Dana [White] took half of it.

“If we went net worth for net worth, I would s**t on you, Conor.”

Jake Paul may claim to have a higher net worth than McGregor, but the numbers would suggest otherwise.

McGregor is understood to have a net worth of £169million, while Paul’s is rumoured to be £25million.

Paul, 25, began chasing a blockbuster clash with McGregor in late 2020 and didn’t leave any stone unturned in his bid to entice the UFC star into a bout.

The former Disney star, however, cooled his interest in the bout following the Irishman’s back-to-back defeats to Dustin Poirier last year.

But sharing the ring with the UFC’s poster boy is something Paul wants to tick off his bucket list.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour, he said: “I think for me, fighting a couple more times, continuing to knock some people out.

“And he has to get active again, who knows when that’s gonna happen?

“I think those two things need to happen, and then at some point, it’s gotta happen.”

He added: “You know, why not? He’s a businessman, I’m a businessman, and that’s $75 to $100 million [£63m-£84.3m]for both of us.”

McGregor, 33, is currently in the final stages of recovering from the horrific broken leg he suffered in his trilogy fight with Poirier last July.

Paul, meanwhile, is gearing up to face Hasim Rahman Jr at Madison Square Garden on August 6.
