CONOR MCGREGOR has been trolled by UFC middleweight Paulo Costa – who reckons The Notorious is destined to fight Jake Paul.
Fight superstar McGregor has two fights remaining on his deal with mixed martial arts' premier promotion and has flirted with a return to boxing.
McGregor has also entertained the idea of a lucrative bout with YouTuber turned boxer Paul, which former 185lb title challenger Costa reckons is an eventuality.
Borrachina recently tweeted a mock-up picture of McGregor being punched by Paul with the accompanying caption: "This day is coming."
Costa's legion of followers were quick to comment, with one saying: "Conor has gone from hero to zero in the last five years.
"I would not be surprised to see him fight Jake for the money."

Another said: "This is honestly what I want hahaha."

Paul, 25, has been pursuing a lucrative fight with McGregor for the best part of 16 months and is adamant he's got what it takes to beat the UFC's poster boy.
