Logan Paul has challenged Conor McGregor to a fight - and it's not the first time.

Just over a year ago, Logan and his brother Jake were gearing up to fight fellow YouTubers KSI and his brother Deji.

Speaking to TMZ at Los Angeles International Airport, Jake said: "I think it'd be dope to see one of us fight McGregor," to which Logan responded, "That's what I was thinking!"

"We've got to prove ourselves first," Logan said.

The headline fight between Logan and KSI ended in a majority draw, generating as much as $11 million for the two fighters.

Earlier this month, a rematch without headgear was confirmed for November 9 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and Logan has once again expressed his interest in entering the octagon and fighting McGregor.

Ahead of a press conference with KSI, Logan was asked by Fight Hub TV who McGregor should fight next.

"Me," he replied.

"I swear to God, yeah, I'll fight Conor. He's f------ punching old men in the face."

McGregor issued an apology on ESPN after footage of him throwing a punch at an older man in a Dublin pub was shared by TMZ in August.

Of the incident, Logan said: "He did take it [the punch] though! He took the punch and then just drank his whiskey. Those Irishmen dude, those Irishmen ... wild."

Logan added that he is "obsessed" with MMA: "No offence to Eddie [Hearn], I'm an MMA fan. I want to do MMA after this. I wrestled in high school."

While the YouTuber might fancy his chances against the Irishman, it doesn't look like he'll be challenging the man that beat him last - Khabib Nurmagomedov - any time soon.

"I don't think Khabib's a human being," Logan said. "I don't know where he came from, but in my eyes he's unbeatable.

"Like, no offense to Dustin [Poirier], but I didn't think Dustin would win and look what happened, it was pure domination."

McGregor announced his retirement from MMA earlier this year but his return has been hinted at by UFC boss Dana White. It remains unclear whether he will actually fight again.
