Jake Paul called out Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis after knocking out Nate Robinson

YouTube sensation Jake Paul shocked the world after he knocked out NBA star Nate Robinson in a boxing match.

The pair fought on the main card of the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr exhibition show. However, Paul put on quite a performance by knocking out the NBA star and got a lot of people talking.

He decided to take it up a notch as well and called out MMA stars Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis. Paul claimed he could knock both of them out and well, that wasn’t received well by many.

McGregor is one of the greatest MMA athletes of all-time and has boxed before. Danis, for his part, is undefeated in his young MMA career but former UFC Champion Daniel Cormier made a crazy prediction for this clash.

He claimed that Paul could knock Danis out in a boxing match and McGregor would beat the YouTuber easily.

Danis didn’t take this prediction lying down and called out the former champion. He posted a picture of Cormier getting beat up while he photo-shopped his face into the image. DC wasn’t happy either and told Danis to sit down:

A big prediction from Cormier?

DC might be retired from the UFC but he is still great as a commentator and has his own show alongside Ariel Helwani.

The Paul vs Danis prediction certainly was a surprise given that Danis has been in several MMA training camps while the YouTuber only trained recently for the clash against Robinson.

Further, Robinson didn’t have a lot of MMA experience which is not the story for Danis. It seems unlikely that Danis vs Paul will happen but if it does, there would be more pressure on the MMA star than the YouTuber.
