Jake Paul is at it again, and this time he’s mocked Conor McGregor’s sparring partner ahead of his UFC 257 bout, a professional boxer named Dylan Moran with an impressive 15 – 1 record.

Jake Paul is still doing his best to try and get Conor McGregor’s attention, and it hasn’t worked so far. However, he may have gotten one step closer after taking a swipe at his sparring partner for UFC 257.

Conor has been sparring with a professional boxer named Dylan Moran, who has an impressive 15 – 1 record. But apparently, that doesn’t mean much to Jake, who is sitting on a 2 – 0 record himself. Here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has been trying to get Conor McGregor’s attention for some time now.

“Conor McGregor has a fight coming against Dustin Poirier, the guy who he already beat in one round,” he said. “Conor’s taking easy fights. But he’s been sparring in Ireland, and someone… asked him about his recent sparring sessions. This is what Conor [said].”

Jake shared some screenshots of Conor talking about his sparring partner. He described him as “very tough” and “one of the better boxers I’ve shared the ring with.”

Conor also said the rounds were “super close.” He even copped a decent shot on the nose from the “phenomenal” and “exciting” boxer, which made him bleed.

Conor McGregor had nothing but kind words for his sparring partner.

Jake swooped on this opportunity to dish out some criticism. “So Conor’s been boxing and going against some phenomenal, exciting Irish talent,” he said. “Then, this kid must be terrific, you know, because Conor’s a good boxer, right?”

“We looked this kid up,” he added, with a smirk. “Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the big, bad, exciting Irish talent. Dylan Moran, the kid that Conor McGregor is sparring against.”

He shared a video of the boxer struggling to guard up and get knocked down in a previous bout. Then, it cut to another instance in the same fight where the commentators were begging the boxer to grab his opponent. Instead, he got knocked out cold and lost the bout.

“That’s the guy making Conor bleed and giving him close rounds,” said Jake, clearly mocking them both. “There’s a fifty million dollar offer on the table. I think at this point, Conor’s just scared to lose because he knows I’m a better boxer.”

Conor McGregor has not yet responded, and probably won’t. UFC 257 is around the corner, and he’d be focused on preparing for Dustin Poirier. Plus, UFC President Dana White has made it clear he wants Conor to stick with MMA for the time being.

So, it seems like Jake Paul’s antics have failed once again. But who knows what the future might hold. The fight could still happen at some point, and he’s certainly doing his best to make it happen.


Virtual streamer CodeMiko banned from Twitch for third time

Popular virtual streamer CodeMiko has been banned from Twitch for the third time, leaving some fans asking if this is a permanent ban. 

Over the years, Twitch streamers have come up with different ways to stand out from the crowd instead of just being world-class at certain games. Some have ramped up production in a major way and you can’t really take your eyes off it.

That includes VTubers and virtual streamers too, who use a digital avatar, editing, and even in some cases, a motion capture suit, to replace themselves on-screen and take on a different persona. 

In the last few weeks, Codemiko – a streamer who takes the VTuber concept to a whole new level – has been getting massive numbers on Twitch. However, she’s now been banned, yet again.

The ban came on January 19 after StreamerBans, who tracks all the different bans – temporary or permanent – on Twitch, tweeted that CodeMiko had been suspended by Twitch. 

The reason for the ban, or its length, is unknown but some fans were quick to speculate on the reason. Some suggested that it was because she used the word Simp – which was recently banned by Twitch. 

Others noted that in a previous stream, where she was interviewing fellow streamer PayMoneyWubby, Codemiko was incredibly drunk and could have been banned for that. Twitch does have some strict rules around drinking on stream, especially if you get out of hand and overindulge. 

There’s no way of confirming just why she’s banned, or how long the ban will last unless the streamer reveals it herself. Twitch typically does not comment on individual bans.

The only thing she’s posted regarding the ban was the ‘sadge’ meme.

This would be her third ban, previously being banned twice in September of 2020.

However, a streamer has to be banned three times within a three month period to rack up a permanent ban, so, she’ll probably be back at some point in the near future.
