Conor McGregor is all about money; that’s why he left the door open for a potential fight against one of the Paul brothers… even if he thinks they are “dingbats!”
The Notorious MMA fighter was making his media rounds ahead of his July 10 UFC fight versus Dustin Poirier when news.com.au’s Nick Walshaw asked if he ever envisioned a future where he would mix it up in the ring with YouTubers Logan or Jake Paul. Walshaw brought up the possibility of the Paul brothers being ringside at Saturday’s big event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Conor wasn’t really amused by the question but hit the YouTuber’s with a verbal jab.
“I couldn’t care about them two dingbats,” McGregor seriously said.
Never Say Never
The Irish whiskey mogul shocked fans when pressed about a potential boxing match by not flat out saying no.
“I don’t see so,” he said about the potential fight, “but, you know, never say never! If they are going to keep competing and whatnot, [expletive] who knows? But dingbats to ’em.”

This is the first time the Irish legend seemed to consider a match with either of the YouTube boxing sensations. Perhaps, Logan impressed McGregor by following in his footsteps and boxing Floyd Mayweather Jr. or by the recent announcement that Jake Paul will go toe-to-toe with former UFC champ Tyron Woodley.
Regardless of who McGregor fights in the future, he still has to get past Poirier first. Saturday will be the third time Conor and Dustin enter the Octagon, with each fighter earning a victory over the other. Poirier seems to have momentum on his side, scoring his KO/TKO in round 2 of UFC 257 on January 23, while McGregor earned his back in 2014.
The point being… he doesn’t have time for the aforementioned “dingbats,” but whatever the Paul brothers are doing is working.
