Jake Paul says 'it's over' for Conor McGregor being on top

Is Conor McGregor still the marquee name in combat sports?

Conor McGregor has seemed to go off the deep end since breaking his leg in a loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July. 

From sending death threats to Poirier and his wife to making vile remarks on Twitter about Daniel Cormier, bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov and subsequently deleting the comments, McGregor's been criticized at every turn for his actions. He's gone too far to the point that notorious villain Jake Paul feels the former dual UFC champion has crossed the line. 

Paul (3-0, 3 KOs), who boxes former UFC welterweight titlist Tyron Woodley on Aug. 29, is of thought that McGregor is acting like this because his time as the biggest name in combat sports is winding down if it hasn't already.

“Look, he’s this guy that was the sh*t for so long and the center of attention, and now his career has plummeted,” Paul told MMA Junkie. “He’s falling off. He’s 1-3 in five years, and it seems as if people don’t really care. He’s disrespectful, even to the point where it’s too far. There’s a point in this where it’s like, ‘Cool, yeah. It’s the fight game. I said what I said. Get over it.’ Talk as much s— as you want. But there’s a point where you look dumb.”

“It’s not even that he’s being disrespectful. He just looks dumb with the s— that he’s saying,” Paul continued. “Threatening to kill people and then he’s out partying, back to drinking, hitting the clubs in L.A. I don’t know, man. I think it’s over for him, and I don’t think his ego can maybe accept that.”

Since Paul decided to take up boxing in January 2020, he's been angling for a matchup with McGregor. The Irishman though hasn't taken the bait thus far. But Paul is of the notion there's a more high profile fight out there than McGregor. 

“I think Nate Diaz versus Jake Paul fight is probably more interesting than a Jake Paul vs. drunk Conor McGregor fight,” Paul said.

Adblock test (Why?)
