But after the Irishman was stunned and left KO’d against Poirier, Paul brutally mocked the UFC superstar.
And in his reaction video online, the internet sensation said he was supposed to be fighting The Notorious.
In a message to the McGregor, he said: “Good morning, I hope you’re up.
“April 17th guys, I’m fighting, it was supposed to be Conor McGregor, but we’ll see what happens.
Paul, 2-0 as a professional boxer after his debut in 2020, has tirelessly chased a fight with McGregor, producing several viral callouts.
And he insisted he had $50million waiting for the former two-weight UFC champion.
But after Poirier pulled off the upset on Fight Island, Paul – who KO’d ex-NBA player Nate Robinson in November – retracted his offer.
He instead told McGregor he will only put up $10,000 in cash for the fight, as he laughed at the UFC 257 result.
In his YouTube upload, Paul went on to say: “Conor McGregor got paid $5million to fight a bum and he got knocked out by the bum.
“Bro, the memes right now are all over Twitter, it’s trending. He got Nate Robinson’d.
“Conor, dude you got paid $5million to fight a bum you should have taken the Jake Paul fight for 50 million.
“Now, I got ten thousand for you, I got $10,000 for you – cold, hard cash, blue hundreds all cash.
“Or, or, I’ll give you a third of a bitcoin, you choose, you choose Conor McGregor.”
