UFC megastar Conor McGregor caused an almighty stir on the weekend when he took a swipe at YouTuber, turned boxer, Jake Paul.

Paul was attending the Thriller boxing event as the promoter of Amanda Serrano in the blockbuster event against Katie Taylor.

McGregor was watching on clearly in support of his compatriot, Taylor, and was excited to see her win in a thrilling encounter, which has been labelled by many as a potential fight of the year candidate.

However, the Irishman couldn't help but take to Twitter and take a swipe at Paul during the event.

The former YouTuber has been calling McGregor out for quite some time to step in the ring with him.

McGregor has largely ignored Paul's jabs.

However, the Irishman appeared to take a swipe at Paul over his attire in a since-deleted tweet.

"Who the f**k is this jackass in the pink Jimmy saville glasses?” McGregor tweeted.

The tweet, a rare stoke of provocation from McGregor at Paul, sparked a tirade from the YouTuber.

Paul claimed he had "done more for fighters than you ever have".

He also pointed to McGregor's recent record of five losses in two years.

While Paul did help put on one of women's boxing's biggest ever events, it is hard to argue he has done more for combat sport than McGregor.

The Irishman helped propel UFC into the mainstream due to his popularity.

He even took part in one of the biggest cross-over events ever when the Irishman boxed Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor has often ignored Paul's constant jabs at him over social media.

This even included when Paul took a distasteful swipe at McGregor's partner, Dee Devlin, back in 2020.

More importantly, the boxing world was in awe of both Taylor and Serrano after a blockbuster main event.

Taylor ended up prevailing in a split decision over her rival.
