Jake Paul predictably rubbed salt into the wound following Conor McGregor’s loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
Paul, who has repeatedly stated he intends to face McGregor in a boxing match in the future, was keeping a close eye on Saturday’s headliner at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. “The Notorious” suffered a first-round TKO loss to Poirier, suffering a broken tibia toward the end of the first round that prevented him from continuing.
Following the loss to Poirier (28-6 MMA, 20-5 UFC) in the anticipated trilogy bout, McGregor’s (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) injuries were confirmed, and it remains unknown how long he’ll be on the sidelines with surgery set for Sunday morning.
The Irishman remains under UFC contract, so a future bout with Paul remains unlikely. However, that hasn’t stopped Paul from taking shots at him.
Paul is currently scheduled for a boxing match with Tyron Woodley under the Showtime banner on Aug. 29.
