Popular YouTuber Jake Paul is no stranger to exchanging blows on live TV - and he had a few choice words for Khabib Nurmagomedov in regards to his post-match brawl during UFC 229.
While Paul is team McGregor all the way, his Tweet revealed more than just an Irish bias.
Paul’s post is nothing short of scathing. On top of calling Khabib a sore winner, he likewise stated that Khabib didn’t deserve anything he has.
“Khabib, you’re a piece of shit,” he wrote. “You deserve nothing you have. You’re a sore winner.”
He went on to cite his own controversies, and claimed that since he is one of the most hated figures on social media, his hatred of Khabib marks a massive statement in regards to the fighter.
“I’m more hated than you, and I’m telling you that you’re a piece of shit,” he said. “I hope you take this to heart if you read this.”
Khabib you’re a piece of shit...— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) October 7, 2018
You deserve nothing you have.
You’re a sore winner.
I’m more hated than u, and I’m telling you that you’re a piece of shit.
I hope you take this to heart if you read this.
& Ive never hated on anyone in my life. It’s not in my blood.
He then implied that he hated Khabib for his actions, even though Paul claimed that such emotions aren’t in his nature.
“...and I’ve never hated on anyone in my life," he continued. "It’s not in my blood.”
Khabib’s victory over McGregor at UFC 229 turned into a crowd-wide brawl after Khabib jumped out of the octagon to throw punches at McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach. In addition, one of Khabib’s teammates attacked the recently-defeated McGregor, which has led to massive division between UFC fans and fighters alike.
Jake Paul is one of many fans who have taken issue with Khabib's actions, which could lead to his title being stripped, according to UFC President Dana White.
