Jake Paul Calls Conor McGregor ‘World’s Biggest Chicken’ In New Call Out Video
Jake Paul has stepped up his bid to goad Conor McGregor into a fight, accusing him - literally - of chickening out of a $50 million showdown.
That's the sum the YouTuber turned boxer claims he's offered McGregor for their in-ring clash. And Jake Paul claims he's never heard anything back from Conor's team - despite McGregor's mantra of "if it makes money, it makes sense".
"I love all chickens - besides Conor McGregor," says Paul in his latest video filmed inside (you guessed it) a fried chicken shop. "He's the world's biggest chicken."
"Conor, you were just talking about me in the media, saying 'if it makes money it makes sense' - I offered you $50 million dollars. You're getting $5 million to fight Dustin Poirier. I think you're a chicken."
McGregor is taking on Poirier for a second time in the headline event of UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi this weekend. But Paul's conclusion - that McGregor must be running from him if he's genuinely turning down £50 million to fight a social media personality - didn't get universal agreement on social media.
"Damn you're really desperate," came his top-rated IG comment.
"Conor lives rent free... poor Jake," was another opinion.

Jake Paul, who is 24 years old, then proceeded to act out an imaginary conversation between McGregor and his training partner Dillon Danis - in which both expressed their fear of Paul.
Danis and McGregor's regular sparring partner, professional boxer Dylan Moran, have both been called out by Paul in recent months. Irish southpaw Moran, who owns a 15-1 pro record, warned Jake and his brother Logan Paul not to try to show up at UFC 257 on Saturday.
"If he or Logan shows up I will sleep those boys. They need to be taught some manners," said Moran.
Despite this - and despite McGregor's refusal to even acknowledge the offers or insults coming from the younger Paul brother - Jake still seems set on taunting the Irish MMA superstar into a response.
Will Jake Paul ever get what he seems to want: a boxing match against McGregor in 2021? Or is he destined for a future making videos in chicken shops?
