YouTube sensation and boxer Jake Paul wants to fight Conor McGregor and is now making things personal.
Paul unleashed a profanity-laced rant earlier this week in which he demanded a fight with the Irishman McGregor. Paul took his efforts to obtain a fight with McGregor to a new level and did so on social media. On Monday, sports fans noticed that Paul only follows one person on one of his Instagram — McGregor’s fiancé Dee Devlin.
Paul is no stranger to controversy, and it does not appear anyone is surprised by his antics in taunting the UFC fighter.
