Jake Paul is still on his mission to improve fighter pay but doesn’t mind taking a timeout to take a few shots at Conor McGregor. 

Jake Paul has been growing in popularity over the past few years. At this time he might be one of the most well-known boxers on the planet. So far he has made his success in beating former MMA fighters inside the ring. He is making a lot of money doing this and is trying to bring other fighters up with him. 

One of Paul’s biggest causes recently has been trying to improve UFC fighter pay. He has been trying to enlist the help of other former fighters in creating a fighter union hoping to improve fighter purses. Now that the UFC has announced that they will be raising the price of each pay-per-view buy, Paul is once again on his mission and taking to Twitter to plead his case. 

In his tweet, Paul took aim at Dillon Danis a friend of Conor McGregor who will be making his boxing debut against KSI next month. In the lead-up to this “celebrity boxing match” Danis has explained that he is making more money than most UFC champions.

Jake Paul turns his sights on Conor McGregor after fighter pay tweet

McGregor recently took a shot at Paul in a roundabout way by criticizing the so-called celebrity boxing matches. When asked if he would ever fight in that sort of fight he said no and in turn found himself in the crosshairs of Paul.

These two have been going back and forth on social media for years. McGregor is of course out of fighting right now and healing up from an injury. If the two were finally able to actually fight it would probably be one of the biggest fights in history. Paul of course seems interested although McGregor seems to be targeting a UFC return next year.
