UFC lightweight Dustin Poirier said ‘we’ll see who is talking’ after YouTubers like Jake and Logan Paul fight ‘real opponents’.
The Paul brothers have both embarked on professional boxing careers, and called out some of the biggest names in the business.
Logan, 25, is set to face boxing royalty Floyd Mayweather, 43, this year while Jake, 24, has chased a fight with UFC legend Conor McGregor, 32.
Poirier – who knocked out McGregor in January – thinks the social media stars have taken their callouts too far.
And he challenged the pair to stay as confident as they are now once they run into an experienced fighter.
Poirier, 32, said on Hot Ones: “It crosses the line to me because I’m one of these guys who can really scrap.
“I wish these guys would get the fights they’re calling for and get in there with real opponents and then we’ll see who is talking after.”
Jake initially offered McGregor a $50million fight offer, but after the Irishman was beaten by at UFC 257, it got reduced to $10,000.
The internet sensation then called Poirier a ‘bum’ and as he mocked The Notorious’ loss.
Jake, 2-0 both by KO, is set to fight ex-UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 36, on April 17.

In an interview with ESPN, the viral vlogger revealed he wanted to spar Poirier in preparation for his third bout.
Jake said: “I don’t respect a lot of MMA fighters.
“Like even watching Poirier, he did a great job against McGregor, and he’s in South Florida and so I am putting it out there, I would love Poirier, I’d love to spar you in boxing.
“You can help me with my fight for Askren. But, I don’t know, I am just not impressed with these guys in boxing at all.”
