YouTuber Jake Paul has made it clear that his main goal in boxing is to fight Conor McGregor. “The Problem Child” told the media ahead of his match with Ben Askren last week that he hopes to box “Notorious” within the next two years.
Paul was once again in the headlines by inserting himself into the MMA community, showing up to UFC 261 on Saturday night and getting into a verbal spat with former two-division champ Daniel Cormier.
On Sunday morning, McGregor seemingly took a jab at Paul, calling him a blogger and saying high-level MMA is better than what “The Problem Child” has been doing in the ring. Paul has boxed three times with a professional license. Most recently, he finished Askren in the first round by TKO.
“UFC high level fighting > Blogger jackass boxing,” McGregor tweeted.

Then, Paul responded to McGregor’s tweet, taking a shot at the Irishman’s whiskey, Proper No. 12. “Jack Daniels > Proper 12,” The Problem Child wrote.
