Jake Paul: "I Might Just Be The New Floyd" Mayweather

Jake Paul is feeling like Floyd Mayweather after knocking out Nate Robinson, a former NBA player with zero professional fights.

"I am here to make millions of dollars, millions of pay-per-views," Paul said during Saturday's post-fight press conference. "I am here to be one of the biggest stars. I think I might be the new Floyd."

“I am here to stay. When you put 10 oz gloves on me, I am vicious," he continued. "I can hit. I am a real dog and when these MMA fighters come into the ring, they are gonna meet the ‘Problem Child’. They are gonna meet me."

One of those MMA fighters is UFC megastar Conor McGregor. Paul (2-0, 2 KOs) sent out a tweet following his lopsided win over Robinson (0-1), calling out the "Notorious" one.

Paul later mentioned to TMZ Sports that his team has reached out to McGregor's camp. Paul believes the two men will battle it out at some point.

"My team is talking to his manager but that's all I'll say," the YouTube star explained before taking a dig at McGregor's UFC 257 opponent, Dustin Poirier. "No other fighter with this big of a platform is calling out McGregor. My dogs have more followers than the guy he's fighting in January."
