Jake Paul may be known to most as a YouTube superstar, but he now has his eyes set on becoming a star in the boxing ring.

Following his stunning KO win over former NBA’er Nate Robinson in the preliminary fight of the Mike Tyson/Roy Jones Jr spectacle, he wants to move on to tougher competition. And that competition is none other than MMA royalty.

He called out both UFC superstar Conor McGregor and Bellator fighter Dollon Danis following his convincing win on Saturday night, and wants the world to know it is not a gimmick and he is really serious about this.

“At the end of the day, this is a business and they’re saying that this fight is breaking all the pay-per-view pre-sale records. I’m the co-main event and Conor McGregor’s bringing those same pay-per-view numbers.” said Paul.

“There’s no other fighter with this big of a platform that’s calling out Conor McGregor right now. His biggest competitor Khabib [Nurmagomedov] retired.”

Meanwhile, McGregor has more pressing issues on hand. He is currently preparing for his upcoming fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 on January 23rd.

He has yet to respond to Jake Paul’s comments.
