Conor McGregor Calls Jake Paul A 'Confused Little Kid'
In the octagon, Conor McGregor is a savage.
But if there's one thing we've learned over the years, it's that he's just as much of a savage outside of the cage too.
Plenty of fighters have fallen victim to the Irishman's clever, witty one-liners - just ask UFC featherweight Jeremy Stephens AKA "Who the fook is that guy".
And after months of trying to get McGregor's attention, it seems YouTuber Jake Paul has finally got a response back - only it probably wasn't the one he was hoping for.
Speaking ahead of his bout against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi, McGregor decided to address the constant (and often offensive) call outs coming from Paul's direction.
"You know, that is what it is," he told BT Sport.
"We'll see what happens, he seems like a confused little kid to me, to be honest.
"He's willing to get in there, I don't know what'll happen, it's not on the radar at the minute with the young lad.
"I have a teammate [Dylan Moran] - him and Dylan have been back-and-forth, so you never know."
This response comes not long after Paul called out McGregor again, this time using an airplane and a banner.
In video posted on social media, Paul can be seen sitting on a beach in Miami while a small airplane flies above him carrying a banner which reads: "Conor McGregor is Scared of Jake Paul."
Earlier this week, the YouTuber-turned-boxer posted another clip on his Instagram calling McGregor "world's biggest chicken" while dancing around in - you guessed it - a chicken shop.
Making no secret of the fact he's angling for a fight with the former dual-division UFC champ, Paul has opened himself up to a barrage of criticism from sports fans.

One social media user commented on his video, saying: "Conor McGregor lives in your head rent free."
While another added: "Bro you're so cringe I swear."
As one replied: "This is desperate."
But while these latest videos seem pretty light-hearted, they're nothing compared to Paul's wild call out video from back in December - a post that has since been deleted.
The 24-year-old former Disney star made headlines for all the wrong reasons when he fired below-the-belt shots at McGregor, his partner Dee and company president Dana White all in a bid to get a fight against the UFC megastar.
This stunt backfired massively with fans instantly turning on Paul.
Even UFC fan favourite Nate Diaz came out and publicly defended his arch-rival McGregor.
As for Jake's older brother Logan, he seems to have cleaned up his act following the announcement of his upcoming exhibition boxing bout against Floyd Mayweather.
Logan has remained somewhat subdued on social media in comparison to Jake and even went as far as saying he'd fight his own brother after he disrespected the UFC's president and main man.
He's even gained the respect of McGregor himself.
"Fair pay to them, fair play to the Logan guy getting in with Floyd," the Irish fan favourite said.
"I'm excited to see how that goes. Floyd looks a bit fat to me, man.
"It's a mad little scene at the minute, but I'm not against it.
"Any man that's willing to make that walk, all the best."
