Jake has been hurling insults for months at the UFC legend, trying to get him to agree to a boxing match -- but on the day Conor's returning to the Octagon to fight Dustin Poirier in Vegas ... JP's decided on this big-ticket troll ... his Sleepy McGregor chain.
The piece -- which he flaunted off with its designer, Benny The Jeweler -- shows McGregor unconscious, right after Poirier's 2nd round TKO back in January.
So far, Conor's largely ignored Jake's efforts to get under his skin ... except to dismiss him and his brother, Logan, as "dingbats." However, this chain might do the trick, especially if Conor sees the video.
JP taunts him one last time, saying ... "Don't go sleepy sleepy! Goodnight, McGregor."
You can tell Conor has lost “it”
He no longer speaks from a place of authenticity & you can tell he’s trying to convince himself of his own lies
He takes offense to everything now
He’s bathing in his own insecurity’s
When we fight I will further expose him for the fraud he is
Here's the thing ... Jake tweeted this week that "Conor has lost 'it'" ... but, he obviously recognizes he still has something -- the keys to a HUGE payday.
Remember, Jake's basically had 2 boxing matches -- only one against a pro fighter, albeit MMA's Ben Askren -- so he knows fighting a major professional draw like Conor is the fastest way to score the most money.
Arguably, McGregor would be more likely to accept JP's offer IF he loses tonight at UFC 264. If he wins, he'll probably be more focused on getting a UFC title shot than an exhibition boxing match ... even one that pays well.
One thing's for sure, Jake will be watching tonight ... and most likely with Sleepy McGregor around his neck.
