Jake Paul, the YouTuber turned boxer celebrity, took in the Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor UFC matchup this past weekend, and per usual, he didn’t mince words about McGregor.
“He’s a piece of s***. He’s sitting there on the ground after losing, talking s*** to Dustin Poirier’s wife. I don’t feel bad at all,” Paul said.
“I think he’s an evil man, and he had what was coming for him.”
Paul isn’t showing any sympathy for the injured McGregor. In fact, he’s in the midst of preparing to face ex-UFC champ Tyron Woodley in the ring himself on August 29th. And by all accounts, Woodley is as excited about it as Paul.
“This is an opportunity for me to sprint into the boxing lane,” Woodley said.
“But also, I’m preparing accordingly. I’m preparing if I was fighting Canelo [Alvarez]. I’m training like that right now.”
Though 39, Woodley emphasized that this bout against Paul will not be his only boxing match, and that boxing is bringing the fun back while he physically prepares himself to go back into the ring.
