Ahead of UFC 264, which took place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, last weekend (Sat., July 10, 2021), headlined by Poirier vs. McGregor 3, Paul showed off a new $100,000 necklace boasting a toy figurine of McGregor unconscious after losing to Poirier (watch here) at UFC 257. In the aftermath of McGregor’s injury loss to Poirier at UFC 264, Paul and Poirier linked up.

“The Conor chain is back at home right now, but Dustin Poirier sent me over his address so we’re getting that over to him and I think he’s going to auction it off for charity,” Paul told media at Thursday’s Showtime kick-off press conference for the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley boxing match. “So someone is going to be able to get ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor, ‘Sleepy’ McGregor chain.”
Paul vs. Woodley will take place at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sun., Aug. 29, 2021, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, streaming online via Showtime pay-per-view (PPV). Ahead of their professional boxing bout, the two combatants went face-to-face at Showtime’s kick-off press conference on Thursday (watch it). Paul was also flanked by a giant, Transformers-like Jake Paul robot.
