YouTuber Jake Paul Says Boxing Bout Against Conor McGregor 'Will Happen'
Jake Paul is at it again.
This time, the outspoken YouTuber-turned-boxer has called out the entire MMA world, including UFC megastar Conor McGregor.
Jake, who is the younger brother of famous YouTuber Logan, is set to fight Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr exhibition bout in Los Angeles.
And when he's not hitting pads or working out in the gym ahead of his second ever professional boxing match, Paul uses his spare time to remain pretty vocal on social media.
As for Jake, he's got his eye on the UFC's biggest star.
"Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor will happen," he told BT Sport.
"People think that's crazy and Jake's going to get his a** kicked but we'll see."

And he wasn't done there either.
It turns out Jake also has his sights set on showing up a bunch of "these MMA guys" - not just former dual-division champion McGregor.
"These MMA guys go to practice every day and have to spend their whole day on one thing - elbows, knees, grappling, take downs so there's a lot they have to work on," he said.
"Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is bound to happen. I know he's seeing these interviews, I know he's seeing the sh**t-talking. It's gonna happen."@JakePaul said he wants Conor McGregor next!

"But I've been going into the gym for the past three years and all I've been focusing on is boxing, so come over into my arena and you're going to get your a** beat."
Despite only having one professional win to his name, it seems the younger Paul brother clearly rates himself as a boxer.
And while a clash with UFC fan favourite Conor McGregor will probably never even come close to happening, it would be quite interesting to take bets on how long it would last.
Not very long, I'm guessing.
