JAKE PAUL has revealed he verbally attacked Conor McGregor’s fiancee, Dee Devlin, because he wanted to ‘piss off’ the UFC superstar.

The YouTuber made derogatory comments about The Notorious’ long-term partner late last year in an x-rated call-out video.

Paul, 23, has no remorse for his actions, insisting insulting the mother of McGregor‘s two children – who is pregnant with their third child – is not off-limits.

He told ESPN: “I wanted to piss him off. You know? I wanted to make a lot of noise, and I wanted it to become personal right away because I truly believe I can beat Conor McGregor.

“And people don’t want to watch a fight where everyone’s going in there being like, ‘Hey, buddy, good luck tomorrow!’

“That’s not the type of fighter I am. If we’re going to go into a fight, no like, I’m going to destroy you, and anyone you’re affiliated with is a part of the wrath and can be attacked.”

Paul insists his comments were fair game when considering McGregor’s previous taunts about the wife of his bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, who he tweeted a picture of and called a ‘towel‘.

He added: “McGregor’s done it. McGregor has attacked Khabib’s wife, Khabib’s religion, thrown chairs at people.

“Like, this is the fight business. If people are gonna get offended, then get the f**k over and choose a different sport. Go do gymnastics.”

Paul’s attempts to land a blockbuster fight with McGregor were unsuccessful and he’s had to make do with a showdown against former UFC welterweight Ben Asken, whom he’ll face on April 17.

The ex-Disney star – who is 2-0 as a professional boxer – is brimming with confidence, so much so he doesn’t expect the former Bellator and ONE Championship champion to land a glove on him.

After hearing the Olympic wrestler’s prediction for their clash, Paul told ESPN: “Go Google Ben Askren’s striking. Hahaha.

“It’s not going to go that long, it’s not going to go that long.

“I don’t even think he’ll hit me. I haven’t been hit one time in the face in my past two fights.

“So I haven’t even been punched as pro boxer one time. Nate Robinson landed one body shot in a clinch.

“I don’t think Ben Askren will even hit me. That’s my prediction.”
