Jake Paul Isn’t Even on Conor McGregor’s Radar

Jake Paul really wants to fight Conor McGregor. I think his reasoning is a combination of overconfidence and being blinded by the potential purse the fight could bring in from people who would love to watch McGregor beat the living daylights out of Paul. Whatever the reason, though, Paul has been doing his best to goad McGregor into a fight, from insulting his wife to hiring a plane to fly over Florida proclaiming that McGregor is scared of Paul.

According to Fox News, McGregor’s reaction to Paul’s stunts has been the calm indifference of a man with nothing to prove.

“He seems like a confused little kid to me to be honest. Now he’s willing to get in (the ring) so I don’t know what will happen. It’s not on the radar at the minute with the young lad.”

McGregor acknowledged that someone from his team and Paul’s team have been in talks but he didn’t seem to give it much substance.

“Fair play to them. Fair play to the Logan guy getting in with Floyd,” McGregor added speaking of brother Logan Paul’s fight with Floyd Mayweather next month. “I’m excited to see how that goes. Floyd looks a bit fat to me.”

Mayweather famously beat McGregor by TKO after McGregor took such a beating he couldn’t lift his arms to defend himself anymore.

The real truth is that McGregor probably thinks fighting Jake Paul would be demeaning, that treating him as an equal would be more demeaning than anything Jake Paul could say about him. I can’t say I blame him, and I’ll bet Tana Mongeau also feels pretty demeaned by the physical activity she engaged in with Jake Paul.
