You knew this was coming.

In the lead up to UFC 257, YouTube star-turned-professional-boxer Jake Paul tried for weeks to grab the attention of Conor McGregor, taking personal shots at his fiancee, all in the hopes of securing a fight.

It didn’t work.

So on Saturday night, after McGregor lost by second-round TKO to Dustin Poirier in their rematch, Paul took to social media with a reaction that should come as no surprise (via Twitter).

In his attempt to lure McGregor into a boxing match, Paul claimed his representatives had sent McGregor a $50 million offer to fight in the ring.

McGregor’s return at UFC 257 was his first fight in more than a year. Prior to losing to Poirier, McGregor stopped Donald Cerrone in a welterweight fight last January at UFC 246.

After Saturday night’s loss, McGregor chalked up the result to inactivity. He’s had just three MMA fights since late 2016, with a 2017 boxing match against Floyd Mayweather squeezed in.
