As if Conor McGregor wasn't already down bad following his fight against Dustin Poirier, Jake Paul immediately started trolling him despite his broken leg. Will Jake's jabs be enough to get McGregor in the ring?

With the first round of McGregor and Poirier's UFC 264 lightweight battle on Sunday night coming to a close, viewers were shocked to see McGregor misstep and snap his shin, leading to his second consecutive loss.

Even on the ground, McGregor couldn't stop talking trash: "Your wife is in me DMs!"

Among the many celebs watching from the stands were Logan and Jake Paul, each of whom wants to scrap with McGregor. Before the fight, Jake copped a $100,000 diamond "Sleepy McGregor Chain" referencing his viral KO defeat at the hands of Poirier back in January.

Post-fight, Jake's 4 million Twitter followers were treated to more ruthless content. The 24-year-old offered his chain to Poirier for his winning efforts, writing, "$100k gift from me. I think you deserve it."

Poirier accepted: "Send it over."

Plus, Jake jokingly claimed that if McGregor were to agree to a boxing match with him now, the Irishman's new purse would only be $23. Last December, Jake announced he had sent McGregor a contract for $50 million, but apparently, it wasn't enough.

In a recent interview, the 32-year-old labeled Jake and Logan as "dingbats" but added, "Never say never," when asked whether he would ever hop in the ring with them.

However, McGregor has yet to respond to Jake's latest antics, as he's focused on recovering. He shared an update on his health following surgery, saying that he'll be spending the next 6 weeks on crutches before rehabbing.

He also called Poirier's victory an "illegitimate win."

You'll recall that Jake knocked out former UFC competitor Ben Askren in April. According to him, 1.5 million people bought the pay-per-view (PPV) event, resulting in $75 million in total revenue.

Now, he's training for his next bout with another former UFC champ, Tyron Woodley.

That fight will take place in Paul's hometown of Cleveland at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Sunday, August 29th.
