Jake Paul has launched a defence of his controversial comments about Conor McGregor 's long-term partner Dee Devlin.
Insisting the UFC star is now "getting a taste of his own medicine", Paul compared his remarks to McGregor's comments about Khabib Nurmagomedov 's wife.
In an X-rated call-out video last week, Paul insisted that McGregor "could do a lot better" than Devlin.
Despite many fans criticising his comments, the YouTuber insisted the Irishman's 2019 tweet about Nurmagomedov's partner made Devlin fair game.
McGregor was accused of Islamophobia after comparing his rival's wife to a “towel” in photos in which she wore a veil covering her face, a tradition in Muslim culture.
And Paul has used that deleted tweet to defend his comments, as he campaigns for a bout with the UFC star.
“I don’t give a f**k. He (McGregor) spoke on Khabib’s wife. He said Khabib’s wife looks like a towel,” Paul told TMZ.
"He’s getting a taste of his own medicine. And now all of a sudden, people are b**thurt (and saying that) I’m going too far. F**k off. This is the fight game.

"Like why are people being b****es now all of a sudden? You know, same with Dillon Danis.
"They’ve said f***ed up s**t about religion, Khabib’s religion; F**k those guys.”
Although McGregor is preparing for a rematch with Dustin Poirier, which will headline UFC 257, that has not stopped Paul from attempting to goad the Irishman.
He sent an expletive-laden message on Instagram, with the American claiming his reps are now in talks with McGregor's.
