Conor McGregor has branded Jake Paul a ‘confused little kid’ as he addressed the YouTuber’s call-out campaign for the first time.
In a bizarre sequence of events, the young American YouTuber has attempted to lure the Irish UFC sensation into a boxing fight.

First, Paul called out the McGregor after he KOd Nate Robinson in his second pro fight last November.
He then put together a controversial callout video in which he insulted McGregor’s fiancée Dee Devlin.
When this garnered no response, he filmed a follow-up in which he taunted the Irishman’s training partner Dylan Moran.
Now, he’s hired a plane to fly a banner over Miami Beach which simply read: “Conor McGregor is scared of Jake Paul.”

When asked in general about YouTubers calling him out, McGregor told BT Sport: “You know, that is what it is.
“We’ll see what happens, he seems like a confused little kid to me, to be honest.
“He’s willing to get in there, I don’t know what’ll happen, it’s not on the radar at the minute with the young lad.
“I know, I have a teammate [Dylan Moran] – him and Dylan have been back-and-forth, so you never know.”
Mayweather is set for an exhibition against a YouTuber
McGregor then went on to discuss Jake’s brother Logan, who is set for an exhibition bout against Floyd Mayweather on February 20.
“Fair pay to them, fair play to the Logan guy getting in with Floyd,” McGregor continued.
“I’m excited to see how that goes. Floyd looks a bit fat to me, man.
“It’s a mad little scene at the minute, but I’m not against it.
“Any man that’s willing to make that walk, all the best.”
