Never one to be quiet with his trash talk, the former Youtube star's most recent escapades include spending a whopping $100,000 on a chain with a pendant figure of professional MMA fighter Conor McGregor knocked out cold, later taunting him with the words "don't go sleepy sleepy".

The jewelry piece, which according to TMZ was reportedly made by Benny The Jeweler, is a reference to the image of McGregor lying on the floor of the ring after being TKO'd in the second round during a brutal fight with Dustin Poirier back in January of this year.

Prior to McGregor's follow up fight with Poirier at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Jake Paul brought out the pendant and a vicious slam. "McGregor you better win tonight, otherwise we're not gonna be able to fight, because if you lose your career is over."

Paul went on, hinting at an offer to pay him to step into the ring, warning him, "And, that $50 million offer I gave you won't be on the table anymore."

Paul had another takedown aimed at the pro fighter via Twitter on July 8 saying bluntly, "You can tell Conor has lost 'it'."

He bashed McGregor saying that he "no longer speaks from a place of authenticity", called him a liar, and claimed that he was "bathing in his own insecurity's [sic]".

When asked if a match with either of the Paul brothers was in the cards, McGregor replied, "I couldn't care about them two dingbats."

Though McGregor doesn't seem to be too worried about fighting either Jake or Logan Paul, he stated in an interview that it isn't totally out of the realm of possibilities for a future fight.

"Never say never," McGregor admitted when pressed further on whether or not he had interest in the fight. "You know, I think, if they're gonna keep competing [...] who knows?"

Only the future will tell if there is a match in the works between Paul and McGregor. Until then, the Irish Lightweight with plenty of legal drama of his own will continue his rivalry with Dustin Poirier.

The fight is set to take place Saturday, July 10, at the T-Mobile Arena starting at 10 p.m. ET.
