Jake Paul has never been the quiet type.

And ever since his knockout win over Nate Robinson, the YouTuber has been calling people out left, right and centre.

Then there was McGregor's teammate and sparring partner Dillon Danis.

And after that he appeared to call out a number current and former UFC fighters - including Ben Askren.

Paul even went as far as saying he was "the next Floyd Mayweather".

But while the younger Paul brother is eyeing up a number of high-profile athletes for his next boxing bout, don't forget that there's an ever bigger line of people who wouldn't mind getting their hands on him themselves.

Quade Cooper being one of them.

The Australian rugby star appeared to register his interest in going toe-to-toe with the trash-talking Paul by commenting on a social media post from Bleacher Report.

The initial Instagram post read: "JAKE PAUL KO'D NATE ROBINSON".

To which Cooper replied: "Mannn hate to see it... Got next" followed by an emoji of someone raising their hand.

Former Wallabies ace Cooper is no stranger to the boxing ring either.

The 32-year-old has laced up the gloves on a number of occasions and still holds a professional record of three wins and zero losses.

He last beat fellow Australian Jack McInnes by TKO back in February of 2017.

And while a bit of ring rust might come into play, there's no doubting Cooper has the ability to derail the Jake Paul hype train.

Someone's gotta make this fight happen.
