Jake Paul calls out Conor McGregor for next fight after quick KO of Nate Robinson

Jake Paul threw down the gauntlet to Conor McGregor after his brutal knockout win over Nate Robinson.

The YouTube star floored former NBA player Robinson — a three-time winner of the Slam Dunk Contest — in the second round of their bout, which served as part of the undercard for the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. exhibition on Saturday.

Paul now has two wins from two fights and wants to add a victory over UFC legend McGregor to his resume.

“I’ve been training my a— off for the past year,” Paul said. “I’m taking this seriously. I have a long list of opponents I want to fight.

“Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis: I will knock both of them out. There’s my brother [Logan Paul], Austin McBroom.

“I want to be in the sport for a long time. I’m in love with it. Why not?”

McGregor fought undefeated former five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather in 2017, losing via a 10th-round stoppage.

However, the Irishman, a former featherweight and lightweight champion in the UFC, has more pressing concerns than a potential bout with Paul.

He is set to make his return to the Octagon in January to face Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.
