Bisping and Paul are currently back and forth over a potential fight and the now-retired UFC champion has joked his rival will call out “old man” McGregor, who was beaten in 2019

McGregor was caught on video punching a man at Dublin’s The Marble Arch pub after refusing an offer of drinks from the UFC star. McGregor avoided imprisonment after pleading guilty to the assault three months later. He was also fined £850.
Bisping’s comment comes after Paul recently put him on a six-man hit list for his next opponent. Since moving into boxing, Paul has been criticized for “cherry picking” opponents. The YouTube star beat now-retired MMA fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley in his bouts last year.
Speaks on his podcast ‘ Do you trust me ‘ Bisping slammed Paul after his recent call, saying, ‘This happened because [Paul] started talking shit and said I was on his hit list. Do you know who else is on their fucking hit list? Oskar De La Hoya. A guy who fought about 145 pounds and retired 18 years ago.

“I don’t think he realizes that calling a 43-year-old fighter with no knees and one eye b****, a little p****? I don’t know if he got the message? [Paul] just gotta fight a boxer and stop shouting at these guys.
“It started with Ben Askren, who was 37 and had a hip replacement, then went to Tyron Woodley, who is 40 and is a right-hand wrestler. Now he’s calling out me and Oscar De La Hoya. The next person he punches is going to be that old guy Conor McGregor punched in the bar!”
Paul is targeting a return to the ring in August after not fighting since KO knocking out Woodley in their rematch last December. Bisping accepted Paul’s call and found a venue for their fight after fearing he would not be sanctioned as he only has one eye.

The YouTube star offered Bisping $1 million plus a pay-per-view bonus for a potential fight, but only if the former UFC champion could prove he’s out of contract as the promotion slips retired from combat in 2017.
Bisping then wrote, “Jake ‘The Pretender’ Paul. First it was ‘Fight Me’, then ‘Show me you can get a license’ and now ‘Show me you don’t have a contract’. Dude, I would don’t steam off my cunt just accept the Anderson Silva fight I know for sure was offered Jake???”
