Jake Paul Challenges Conor McGregor After Knocking Out Nate Robinson

The YouTuber personality-turned-boxer is keen to fight the Ultimate Fighting Championship champion and he vows to knock down the Irish fighter in the boxing ring.

AceShowbiz - Jake Paul's attempts to reinvent himself as a boxer are paying off - the YouTuber is lining up a bout with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) star Conor McGregor.

The Team 10 creator collective boss really impressed doubters last weekend (28Nov20) when he knocked out former National Basketball Association (NBA) player Nate Robinson in an undercard fight before Mike Tyson's clash with Roy Jones, Jr.

Now Paul reportedly has a really big prize in his sights - in the shape of the Irish UFC world champion.

"My team is talking to his manager but that's all I'll say," Paul told TMZ, adding he plans "to f**k Conor McGregor up."

Jake's Saturday success marked only his third time in the ring, following his first ever fight in 2018 when he beat Deji Olatunji before defeating AnEsonGib, yet another star from the shortform video platform, in his second fight in January (20).

And he's been dreaming of a date with McGregor since he embarked on his new sporting career.

"I'm gonna win, too," Paul boasted to the outlet. "That's what I want people to understand. I'm gonna dedicate my life to winning that fight."

Jake also told The Daily Beast last month, he's really focused on his new passion during the coronavirus lockdown, noting he has "fallen in love with boxing" which is helping him "stay focused on becoming the best version of myself."

He also tweeted that he's the subject of a new boxing documentary, which is "coming soon."

McGregor has not yet responded to Paul's claims of a potential punch-up.
