In an interview on The MMA Hour on Monday, Paul was asked about a potential boxing match with McGregor. Paul said that he believes that the two will eventually meet inside the ring.
“It’s got to happen. Why not? He’s a businessman, I’m a businessman, and that’s $75 [million] to $100 million for both of us,” Paul said
McGregor responded via social media calling Paul a ‘flop’ and a ‘nobody.’

You are a flop, kid. A nobody.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) July 11, 2022
On Tuesday, Paul responded to McGregor and went scorched earth on the Irishman.
“The facts are the facts. Conor should have learned from his boss Dana White that I’m not the one to play with it. Dana been hiding from me since last year,” Paul wrote on Instagram and posted a video directed toward McGregor.
“Conor. Conor Conor. You’re more active on Twitter than you are in the octagon. Stop taking trenbolone and start taking fights,” Paul said. “You’re more actively cheating on your wife than you are in the octagon. Your priorities are mixed up. Put down the bottle and get back to fighting. You haven’t won a fight in five f**king years and the last time you did was against ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone who hasn’t won a fight against anyone since fighting you.”
Paul didn’t stop there. See the entire video below.
