Jake Paul has continued his assault of the MMA community, this time attacking teammate of Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis. Paul posted to Twitter stating: ‘Caught the biggest shit talker slacking @dillondanis you gotta check in when you come to La. #GenerousDriveBy‘, along with a video of the ‘attack’. Paul and Danis have gone back and forth for a number of months on social media, entertaining a possible fight. Paul most recently improved to 2-0 in his ‘professional’ boxing career. That being said, his two wins have come against a fellow Youtube star and a former basketball player who had no business being in the ring with someone who knew how to fight.

Paul vs. McGregor
Jake Paul conducted this stunt off the back of calling out Conor McGregor for a fight. Although we all know how a fight between the two would play out, you can’t knock Paul for believing in himself. Saying that his call-out was nothing but cringy. Let’s be honest, unless McGregor wants an easy payday, he won’t even entertain Jake Paul.

There are options for Paul’s next fight, however. The man he attacked with water balloons, Dillon Danis has, on multiple occasions said that he’d be willing to fight Paul. Former ‘Champ, Champ’ (or triple champ if you ask him), Henry Cejudo said that he’d be willing to fight Paul. Former foe of McGregor, Nate Diaz also stuck up for the Irishman following Paul’s callout in typical Diaz fashion.
Jake Paul u need your ass beat for free u spoiled fuck u can’t really fight dumbshit your gonna end up with your ass whooped for real somewhere talking like that 👊🏼

UFC president, Dana White has other ideas, however. On Paul, White suggested that he is ‘thinking of letting Amanda Nunes knock his ass out‘, an idea that Nunes herself seems interested in, taking to Twitter and simply stating ‘I’m in!’.
As of late, simply put, Jake Paul is grabbing all the headlines in the combat sports world. Whatever your view on the Youtuber, he knows how to cut a promo. Attacking the teammate of Conor McGregor will certainly get back to the Irishman and we all know how highly he values loyalty, as can be seen with the notorious ‘bus attack’ at UFC 223.
