After his knockout victory over former NBA guard Nate Robinson, Jake Paul is now challenging one of the biggest names in the fighting community and, according to the YouTube star, this will happen.
Paul joined Twitter shortly after knocking out Robinson in the second round of their bout at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night to call up UFC champion Conor McGregor for a future fight.

The 23-year-old internet sensor has apparently kept his promise and confirmed to TMZ Sports this week that both sides are actively involved in match talks.
“My team is talking to his manager, but that’s all I’m going to say,” Paul told the store.
But Paul still got into the conversation, saying the fight made sense to McGregor, whom he called a “businessman.”

“No other fighter with this big platform calls McGregor … My dogs have more followers than the one he fights with on Instagram in January.”
Paul is not only sure that the battle will happen, but he is also sure that he will come out on top.
“The battle between Jake Paul and Connor McGregor will happen and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes legendary and I will win too. This is what I really want people to understand … I will dedicate my life to winning this battle, because I will not go there just to say I did. I’m going there to get out with Connor McGregor. “
