Jake Paul Taunts Conor McGregor By Only Following His Fiance On Instagram

Jake Paul has taken the next step in his mind games with Conor McGregor by reducing the number of people he's following on Instagram to one: the UFC star's fiance, Dee Devlin.

YouTuber Paul has been trying to goad 'The Notorious' into a fight. He's claimed to have sent McGregor's team a $50 million offer and posted a profanity-filled IG video in which he insulted Devlin and brought up the fighter's past controversies.

"What the f**k is up, you Irish c**t?" Paul said, seated in a sports car and draped in an Irish flag while smoking a cigar.

"Good morning, Conor McGregor. I know you're probably beating up old dudes in a bar right now, or maybe you're jacking off because you're sick of f**king your wife.

"I mean, she's a four [out of 10], Conor. You could do a lot better. But happy Monday."

Fairt low stuff. But clearly the 23-year-old is continuing to try to push McGregor's buttons by unfollowing everyone on his Instagram account, leaving just Conor's long-term partner Devlin.

Jake, younger brother of Logan Paul, has 14.2 million followers on Instagram. And clearly he's decided if his brother can somehow set up an exhibition fight with Floyd Mayweather for 2021, he wants to face McGregor next year - but in an actual boxing bout.

"You're ducking me because you don't want to lose to a f**king YouTuber," said Paul. "You're 0-1 as a boxer. I'm 2-0 as a boxer."

That's statistically accurate. But Paul's two wins came against a fellow YouTuber and an ex-NBA star, while McGregor's loss came against all-time ring great Mayweather - so it's safe to say there's been a massive gap in the quality of their opponents.

Jake Paul also fired off expletive-laced insults at Dana White, the UFC president who claimed there was "zero chance" of McGregor facing Paul amid the call-outs.

'The Notorious' returns to MMA action next month as he rematches Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 in January.

It remains to be seen whether Jake Paul's antagonising will have the desired effect of tempting McGregor to fight him - or whether will Conor will continue to ignore the social media pest.
