“If you want a knock off me, step up and say your piece. I’m still picking who.

“Just kidding I well know who. When. What weight. Where. How it goes. Everything. I see dead people.”

YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul was quick to reply to McGregor’s post, as he uploaded a snap of the Dublin native with a filter of him crying.

The ex-Disney actor, 25, has long campaigned for a fight against the two-time world champion either inside the steel cage or the squared circle.

But in a blow for Paul, it appears that Michael Chandler could secure a fight against McGregor following his brutal knockout win against Tony Ferguson at UFC 274.

The 36-year-old has stated that he believes that he is the “frontrunner” to face the Irishman.

Speaking on Bussin’ With The Boys, the ex-Bellator lightweight champ said: “I feel like I’m the frontrunner right now, I could be the frontrunner.

“I’m exciting, I got the hype, I got the people behind me, I got the knockouts, I got the hillbilly fights with Gaethje, I got the callout.

“People can see me on the mic and they know there’s going to be some verbal jiu-jitsu going on there on the microphones, me and him going back at it, respectively, of course, on my side at least.

“I think I’m on the cusp of being the guy who’s in the conversation with Conor and very few people get in the conversation with Conor.
