It wouldn’t be a big weekend of mixed martial arts (MMA) action without the Paul brothers showing up to chase clout.

UFC 264 just went down from a sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and both Jake and Logan Paul were on hand to check out the action. We didn’t get any, “F—k Jake Paul” chants this time like we did at UFC 261, and Daniel Cormier resisted the temptation to get in Jake’s face as well.

Nah, this time the Paul brothers were largely relegated to posting crappy takes on Twitter like the rest of us. Let’s start with Jake Paul, who came to the event with new bling: “My new $100,000 Nyquil McGregor, Sleepy McGregor chain.

Hey, we’re not exactly Conor McGregor stans around here, but the disrespect was just too much to bear silently, so we fired back on Twitter.

And let us tell you what, our mentions have been flooded with Paulistas ever since.

Just another normal one. How was your fight night, Maniacs?
