Sylvester stallone said Conor McGregor would be silly to say no to one Jacques Paul fight … tell TMZ Sports the money would be INSANE !!
We spoke to Stallone – a HUGE boxing fan – outside Cafe Roma in Beverly Hills… and asked the “Rocky” star if McGregor should take the bait and fight the YouTuber turned boxing star. .
“You’re kidding. With the kind of money around, it would be stupid not to. Think about it.”
Of course, Conor and Jake have fought verbally on social media and in the media … but when McGregor was recently asked about wrestling JP, he didn’t exactly say no.
“I don’t see it, but never say never,” Conor said. “If they’re going to keep competing and what else, who knows? But dingbats, both.”
For his part, Jake offered to CM $ 50 million for a fight earlier this year.
But, assuming they fought… Conor is a former UFC 2-division champion, and Jake is relatively new to the sport (3-0) – so does Paul have a real chance of beat The Notorious ??
“Oh yeah,” Stallone said … “[Jake’s] has scope, and it has youth. And it is not easy to eliminate. “
Before any fight with Jake Paul, McGregor confronts Dustin Poirier Saturday night… and Stallone breaks down the main event of UFC 264.
