With Jake Paul’s big fight against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley rapidly approaching, it’s worth remembering arguably his most diabolical effort to date of getting in a rival’s head.
Once upon a time, before Woodley entered the picture and prior to Ben Askren wrecking his career and reputation in a bout that some (including at least one UFC legend and champion) are convinced was rigged, everyone was eagerly awaiting a showdown between Paul and Conor McGregor BFF Dillon Danis. The pair threw around a lot of harsh words for months, and that culminated in an all-time troll move by Paul.
Paul released a video of himself seemingly FaceTiming Danis’ girlfriend Savannah Montano and then let everyone’s imaginations run wild.
“Aye Dillon Danis, come get your girl back,” Paul wrote in a screencap of his FaceTime.
For obvious reasons, Montano was subjected to a lot of criticism from Paul’s haters and Danis’ fans, so she took to social media to address it.

“I just wanna say that everybody that’s not Jake Paul’s 12-year-old fans can clearly see that he’s just a f**king loser, and I don’t know how he got my number,” she said.
“That s**t’s embarrassing, and I don’t wanna be associated [with it]. It’s f**ked up that I’m being used as a pawn in this bulls**t.”
Shortly after that, in light of his extremely successful showing against former NBA star Nate Robinson and aforementioned domination of Askren, Paul tried to call out McGregor with some pretty personal attacks.
“What the f***k is up, you Irish c**nt?” Paul said in one recent video.
“Good morning Conor McGregor. I know you’re probably beating up old dudes in a bar right now. Or maybe you’re jacking off because you’re sick of f**king your wife. I mean, she’s a four Conor. You can do a lot better.
“My team sent you a 50 million dollar offer this morning. 50 million dollars cash. Proof of funds. The biggest fight offer you’ve ever been offered. But you’re scared to fight me, Conor. You’re ducking me because you don’t want to lose to a f**king YouTuber. You’re 0 – 1 as a boxer. I’m 2 – 0 as a boxer.
“I just came off the eighth biggest pay-per-view event in history. But you wanna fight Dustin Poirier, who has less followers on Instagram than my f**king dog. That’s a fact.”

Unfortunately for Paul, he couldn’t get a response and had to settle for Woodley.
With a victory on Sunday, however, Paul could land that big McGregor payday he ultimately seeks. And if he does, McGregor better hope his lady doesn’t end up FaceTiming with The Problem Child.
