Jake Paul bemused by Conor McGregor's 'bum' coach's training offer to help YouTuber become MMA star
JAKE PAUL has snubbed a coaching offer from John Kavanagh, branding Conor McGregor's long-time MMA coach a "bum".
Coach Kavanagh offered Paul the opportunity to train at SBG Ireland in Dublin after getting wind of the YouTuber's apparent intention to compete in mixed martial arts.
But The Problem Child has emphatically rejected the helping hand, telling The Mirror: "I don't train with losers.
"So as nice and respectful as that is, coach Kavanagh you can suck my nuts."
Paul, 25, cites McGregor's recent skid as the main reason why he won't be taking up Kavangh's offer to train at SBG.
He continued: "Conor McGregor, you can suck my butthole because I don't train with losers like that, this guy hasn't won a fight so why would I want his bum a** coach teaching me."

Paul began teasing a move to mixed martial arts before his viral knockout of ex-UFC champ Tyron Woodley.
The Problem Child has been angling for a fight with McGregor for well over a year and is willing to step inside the octagon to face the UFC's poster boy.
He told TMZ: “Conor is on a downhill spiral. His limbs are all broken.
"So, stand-up game, I’m coming out and knocking him out, first round.

Paul has used various social media platforms to try and goad MMA mogul McGregor into a lucrative showdown.
And he recently claimed the Irishman's life is falling apart at the seams.
He said: “I just want to fight him and smack him in the head – in that sense I hope that he can win some fights so that we can actually fight.
“But the guy is a grown-ass man, he needs to figure out his life; it seems to be falling apart from what I can tell.
