Conor McGregor told he is "embarrassing himself" after UFC return cancelled


Conor McGregor has been brutally told by Jake Paul that he is "embarrassing himself" after pulling out of his UFC comeback fight.

The Irishman was scheduled to return against Michael Chandler at UFC 303 on June 29 but an injury forced him out of the bout. Almost three years have passed since McGregor broke his leg against Dustin Poirier in his last fight and he will now have to wait until August or September for his rescheduled fight against Chandler.

Paul has been calling for a fight against McGregor ever since ditching his internet fame for a boxing career. The influencer, who fights Mike Perry on July 20 after Mike Tyson was forced out of the fight, belittled McGregor by telling the Irishman he wouldn't deserve to be ringside for his upcoming fight.

''We can get him a fourth or fifth row ticket, he's kind of lost his celebrity and star power. I don't think people care about him, but I'm sure I could comp him a fourth or fifth row. There's new sheriffs in town, he hasn't won a fight in [four] years. He is embarrassing himself and ruining his legacy with the way he looks online," Paul said on The MMA Hour.

"He lost his mind and is a maniac, at one point Conor was great and everyone loved him but I feel bad for the guy now. You can say all of these things about him but he hasn't proven it and hasn't backed anything up. That's the way that I look at it, from the facts and from the numbers."

McGregor hasn't won a fight since KO'ing Donald Cerrone in 40-seconds over four years ago. The Irishman still has two fights left on his UFC contract and Dana White sounded uncertain when asked about the former two-weight world champion's next steps. "Conor’s going to be 36 in July. He’s got plenty of money," White told Jim Rome.

"I don’t ever think that guys like that, Jon Jones, who knows, maybe he’ll fight again, maybe he won’t. Conor McGregor, maybe he’ll fight again, maybe he won’t. You never know with some of the guys that get to that level. You never know if you’re ever going to see them again."
