Logan Paul says brother Jake's chances of fighting Conor McGregor have been 'watered down' because of UFC star's injury
LOGAN PAUL admitted his brother Jake's chances of fighting Conor McGregor have been 'watered down' after the Irishman's horror injury.
The Pauls were cageside at UFC 264 in Las Vegas where McGregor broke his tibia at the end of round one against Dustin Poirier.
It meant he lost the trilogy bout by doctor stoppage and was later handed a six month medical suspension.
Younger brother Jake, 24, has continued to chase a fight with McGregor, who underwent surgery and will now be on crutches for six weeks.
But even Logan, 26, conceded the YouTube star has little chance of prizing the southpaw into the ring any time soon.
He said on his podcast: "I think obviously now, Jake's plans for fighting Conor have been a little watered down because of the whole missing ankle thing.
"You got no leg. No leg, no contract."
McGregor, 33, first beat Poirier, 32, in 2014 but was knocked out when they rematched in January.
Beforehand, Paul had offered the former two-weight UFC champion $50million to fight him.
But after McGregor was stretchered out of the octagon in the trilogy, the deal was cut to just $23.

Paul had spent $100,000 on a 'sleepy' diamond McGregor chain, which he then sent off to Poirier, who plans to auction it for charity.
The American is open to a FOURTH fight with his lightweight rival after the unprecedented ending to their trilogy decider.
McGregor also continued to threaten Poirier's life after the loss and goaded that his wife Jolie was messaging him on Instagram.
It left even prankster Paul – who once mocked McGregor's fiancee Dee Devlin – feeling no sympathy for the richest sportsman in the world.
He said: "He's a piece of s**t. He's sitting there on the ground after losing, talking s**t to Dustin Poirier's wife.
"I don't feel bad at all. I think he deserves it. I think it's hilarious. I hope he (Poirier) takes a picture with it (the necklace) and posts it on Instagram.
"I just love to see McGregor plummet. He was a meteoric star that's now just taking a nosedive.
"Before I wanted to fight him and I offered him $50 million, now my offer is $23."
