As if 2020 hasn’t delivered enough surprises, this might be the most random development yet: YouTube star Jake Paul knocked out former NBA guard Nate Robinson on Saturday night — and then called out Conor McGregor.
The pair met in the ring as part of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card, with Paul’s eventual win his second in as many career tilts.

Suffice it to say, the fight sent the entirety of Twitter into overdrive, with others around the sports world giving their two cents.

I’d pay to see Ron Artest go against Jake Paul

Even the king of hot takes himself had something to say.
As if the result itself wasn’t enough, Paul already has his eyes on his next potential opponent. Hint: he can be considered “notorious.”
If you want 2020 in a nutshell, this is surely the perfect encapsulation.
