Influencer-turned-boxer Jake Paul is still trying to secure his first-ever MMA fight against UFC legend Conor McGregor and challenged the Irishman in a recent interview by attacking his integrity.
Jake Paul has become quite the boxing star of late, securing a knockout in his fifth fight against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley to continue his unbeaten streak.
In his quest, The Problem Child has frequently shot Conor McGregor and is demanding that UFC President Dana White pay his fighters more. In an effort to kill two birds with one stone, his latest fight offer includes a stipulation that if he loses he donates his entire wallet to other fighters.
With the fight still not sanctioned by the UFC and Paul saying he would fight McGregor at 175lbs, the young YouTuber encouraged the Irishman to “do the right thing” and accept it.
Dana – Since you like me now how about a 1 fight UFC deal to fight Conor.
If I win you agree to my UFC fighter salary and health offer.
If I lose, I’ll donate my entire wallet to any UFC fighter who makes less than $50,000 a fight and never mentions UFC again

Jake Paul wants McGregor to fight to help other UFC stars
In a recent interview with The sunJake Paul admitted he doesn’t yet deserve a fight against The Notorious in MMA, but a match with him would be for something much “bigger” than them both.
“It’s about creating a win-win situation for UFC fighters while giving UFC and Dana the opportunity to do the right thing,” he said. “It’s a big risk for me to get into MMA, but I’m willing to do it if hundreds of fighters can benefit.”
He declined to say if his challenge was under UFC consideration, but urged McGregor to accept it for his fellow contestants.
Jake Paul accuses McGregor of selfishness
“Conor, you’ve been selfish your whole life,” he scolded. “Selfish for your family with your antics, selfish for your career with your partying, and most of all a selfish fighter who never tried to uplift his fellow fighters. You’re a rich little nut who poses and thinks cool watches and suits will make people like you.”
“This is your chance to do something for others,” he continued. “Accept my proposal and let’s do something bigger than us. I’m ready.”
So far, McGregor hasn’t commented on the challenge, but he’s mostly been a little more open to the idea, recently saying “who knows?” when asked about the possibility of fighting the YouTuber and even mocking one of his callouts.
We’ll just have to see if the UFC agrees to fight the fight and if Jake Paul can finally get his wish to step into the octagon against the southpaw MMA star.
