JAKE PAUL has reignited his war of words with Conor McGregor – and this time he’s taken aim at the UFC star’s wages.
The YouTuber began targeting McGregor with a series of expletive-filled videos 14 months ago before stopping his digs after seeing him break his leg last July.
Paul, however, put McGregor back in his crosshairs last month by mentioning him in his Dana White ‘diss track’.
And now, he’s mocked the former two-division champion’s earnings by claiming they pale in comparison to those of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
After seeing McGregor congratulate UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya for his new bumper deal, Paul tweeted: “Indeed well deserved [sic] for Izzy but unfortunately Tyson Fury still makes more than both of you combined for fighting.”
The Problem Child then called for McGregor to step up and speak out about fighter pay in the UFC.
He asked: “Conor, when you gonna [sic] start playing your part to get ALL fighters better pay and healthcare?”
McGregor, who has yet to respond to Paul, hailed Adesanya’s bumper new deal by saying: “Congrats Paradigm Sports Management Agency.
“Number 1 and 2 highest paid on the UFC roster contractually.
“Myself and Izzy. An excellent feather in the cap of an amazing sports agency. @ParadigmSports!
“Congrats to all my team and a big congrats last night Israel.”
Future UFC Hall of Famer McGregor, 33, is currently gearing up for a potential summer return to the octagon.
The Irishman shattered his left leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier last July but has made a faster-than-anticipated recovery.
Paul, meanwhile, is currently playing the role of promoter ahead of Amanda Serrano’s clash with Katie Taylor but is eyeing a September return to the ring.
During an appearance on The MMA Hour, he said: “There’s a lot going on in other aspects of my life.
“I’m going to do these press conferences over the next two weeks here to help with the promotion around Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano and I’m very busy on the business side of things with my venture capital fund.
“So I haven’t even got back into the gym or been training at all.
“I need to have a discussion with my coaches but probably I would say August-September maybe. Maybe later. I’m trying to figure it out.
“Obviously if the stars align in some sort of way or I have a change of heart, then things can obviously move around but right now I don’t feel like that motivated to just go right back into another training camp.”
