Jake Paul as Conor McGregor.
  • Internet celebrity Jake Paul continues to berate UFC star Conor McGregor.
  • The Irish fighter has recently been accused of assault by an Italian DJ.
  • Paul called McGregor a "coked up" wannabe tough guy. He didn't provide any evidence for that assertion.

Jake Paul accused Conor McGregor of being "coked up" and a wannabe tough guy in a tweet that followed the Irishman's latest scandal.

The former two-weight UFC champion is alleged to have assaulted an Italian DJ called Francesco Facchinetti during a late-night party in Rome over the weekend.

Fracchinetti claimed McGregor punched him "for nothing," and broke his nose.

Insider sought comment from a representative of McGregor's but is yet to hear a reply.

Reacting to the news, the internet sensation Paul - who has competed in four pro boxing matches - implored McGregor to try something similar should they ever cross paths in the future.

"Coked up Conor likes to play tough guy with musicians," Paul's tweet read. "Conor please try and do something when you see me!"

Paul provided no evidence for calling McGregor "coked up."

The 24-year-old has beaten fellow creator AnEsonGib, the former basketball player Nate Robinson, ex-MMA champion Ben Askren, and the former UFC king Tyron Woodley in his fledgling combat sports career to date.

He has long had McGregor in his crosshairs, and even told Insider in 2020 that he wanted to box the MMA fighter , who he called "washed up."

McGregor rarely speaks about Paul, but said in one interview at the start of the year he's "certainly a viewer" of Paul . Footage of the clip later disappeared from YouTube.

In another interview, McGregor called Paul "a confused little kid."

It is unclear who Paul will box next, but he has been linked to WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury's half-brother Tommy Fury.

McGregor, meanwhile, is continuing his rehabilitation from a broken leg and will not likely return to the UFC until mid-2022.
