Logan Paul admitted his brother Jake’s decision to call out Conor McGregor in an X-rated rant was “f–king dumb.”
Jake hit the headlines after he branded McGregor an “‘Irish c–t”‘ claimed to have sent him a $50 million fight offer. He also insulted MdGregor’s wife, Dee Devlin.
Even big brother Logan — who faces McGregor’s former opponent Floyd Mayweather next year — was left shocked by the video.
And he fears Jake, 23, may have gone too far by going after ex-UFC champion McGregor — who has 19 knockouts in 22 wins.
Logan, 25, said on his podcast: “I love Jake, obviously, but this one is f–ling dumb. Sorry, sorry, this one is f–king dumb, dude.”
As Mayweather, 43, beat McGregor, 32, in their 2017 boxing match, Logan was asked why he objects to Jake fighting the loser of that bout.
And he responded: “Conor McGregor is a southpaw, he’s bigger than Floyd Mayweather, he’s younger than Floyd Mayweather.
“He’s way active. I understand what you’re saying, so did everyone else, but he’s just a precision striker, knockout artist. Floyd is not. He’s just not. He’s older, everyday he gets older, everyday I get better.
“I understand the discrepancy between us.”
Logan will face Mayweather next February, in what is billed as a “special exhibition fight.”
The internet sensation lost his pro debut last year by split-decision to social media rival KSI — real name Olajide William Olatunji.
But his little brother Jake has won his first two bouts, empathically knocking out retired NBA player Nate Robinson, 36, in November.
