Conor McGregor didn’t rule out fighting “dingbats” Logan and Jake Paul after taking on Dustin Poirier.
McGregor is preparing for his trilogy showdown against Poirier at UFC 264 this weekend.
“I couldn’t care about them two dingbats. I don’t see so, but never say never,” McGregor said.
“If they’re gonna keep competing, who knows? But, dingbats, the two of them.”

Notorious was stunned back in January after being knocked out by Poirier to level their duel.
In their first fight back in 2014, Irishman McGregor claimed victory leaving plenty at stake for this weekend‘s big showdown.
McGregor has not held the UFC belt since 2016 when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez to add the lightweight strap to his featherweight title.
His road back to the belt suffered a huge blow after he was upset by Poirier in Abu Dhabi seven months ago.
McGregor‘s only options if he loses will to be face Nate Diaz or Jake Paul, according to former UFC star Joe Duffy.

“I think the avenue for Conor if he loses is the Nate fight or a big boxing fight, the Jake Pauls, stuff along those lines rather than a run back at the title.” Duffy told SunSport.
“Obviously, with Conor it‘s not just the fight itself it’s the whole build up which makes it exciting.
“The likes of Anderson Silva, and some of the other guys, even when they started losing they still had that aura and the fans tuned in to watch them.
“Obviously, he could go in and blast Dustin out and prove us all wrong, it wouldn‘t be the first time.”
But former middleweight king Michael Bisping claims McGregor could retire if he suffers another defeat in Las Vegas on Saturday.
“If he loses, I think there’s a potential that he might retire,” Bisping said in an episode of his podcast Believe You Me.
“I really do. If he’s not going to be the champ, and that is a long way off, what is he going to do?
“He’ll always be the main event but is he just doing to do random fights against people that don’t mean anything?
“He’s made his money. He always said that he was going to get rich and get out. He’s certainly got rich.
“The last part is to get out. If he can’t beat Poirier and can’t fight for the belt anytime soon, then what?”
