Jake Paul clapped back at Conor McGregor after the former two-time UFC champion called him an “ass” by comparing their performances over the past two years, including fight wins.
Another day, another hit between Jake Paul and Conor McGregor. They’ve been doing this for years, although it was mostly inspired by Jake. This time, however, it was started by the UFC star himself.
The social media back-and-forth began with McGregor throwing shade at Jake for wearing pink-lens sunglasses at the Katie Taylor vs. Amanda Serrano pay-per-view event in Madison Square Garden, New York.
“Who the hell is that jackass in pink Jimmy Savile glasses?” said McGregor, referring to the late Sir James Wilson Vincent Savile, an English DJ, television and radio personality who wore similar-looking sunglasses.
Jake clapped back shortly after, listing all of his accomplishments over the past few years compared to McGregor, including helping fighters get paid, winning fights themselves and enabling other fights.
“I’m the one who’s done more for the fighters than you ever have,” he said.
“The one who won 5 fights in the last two years while you lost 5. The one that doesn’t belong to Dana White. The one who brought about the fight you just saw. The one that paid your heroine Katie Taylor. That’s who!”

the one that doesn’t belong to Dana White
the one who brought about the fight you just saw
the 1 your heroine Katie Taylor paid

McGregor replied almost immediately, but didn’t say much. Instead he posted a picture by Jimmy Savile wearing the sunglasses he was referring to. After that, the tension between them more or less evaporated.
However, it’s one of the few times McGregor has acknowledged Jake, and it added more fuel to the fire in regards to a possible superfight between them.
Jake insisted it would only happen if Dana White improved fighter pay.
