Conor McGregor finally responds to Jake Paul fight challenge
‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor has finally issued his long-awaited response to Jake Paul after months of challenges from the YouTube boxer.
Jake Paul has faced off against a number of opponents throughout his budding career as a YouTuber-turned-boxer.
However, it’s clear that he wants a bout with none other than UFC idol Conor McGregor — and he’s not backing down until he gets a “yes.”
Most recently, Paul took shots at the Irish UFC star amid his own ongoing feud with prez Dana White, urging The Notorious to take a stand and request a bigger paycheck for his fellow fighters.
It looks like McGregor has finally issued a response to the influencer, as told in a recent interview with Mirror Fighting after being asked about the possibility of a fight with Paul.
“Who knows?” McGregor said. “Never say never. I didn’t see the Woodley fight. It only did a couple thousand buys. I saw it online. I didn’t hear the diss track on Dana. I don’t pay attention to all of that.”

This isn’t the first time McGregor has commented on the Paul brothers; in summer 2021, The Notorious claimed that he was open to fighting the YouTube duo, notably dubbing them “dingbats.”
More surprisingly, it seems that he’s even repeated his past words: “Never say never. If they’re gonna keep competing, who knows?”
Right now, it’s unclear who Paul’s next opponent will be — but it’s certain that this bout would shake up the influencer boxing space in a big way.
After all, if Logan Paul can score a fight with Floyd Mayweather, who’s to say Jake can’t take on McGregor? (Providing he actually accepts, that is.)
