YouTube star Jake Paul knocked out former NBA player and three-time Slam Dunk champion Nate Robinson on Saturday. The bout was part of a fight night at Staples Center that was headlined by Mike Tyson coming out of retirement to throw hands with Roy Jones, Jr.
While Tyson’s fight was fun for what it was (it ended in a draw), Paul’s second-round TKO of Robinson sent social media buzzing.

After the fight, Paul called out Conor McGregor as his next opponent, but it appears several NHL enforcers want their shot at the social media influencer, including former Capital Michael Latta.

Sharks forward Evander Kane openly wondered if he should be Paul’s next opponent.

Robin Lehner was a bit more blunt.
I would **** you up.

While Paul’s right was brutal, the most savage moment happened on social media where NBA superstar Steph Curry took Robinson to task for his poor performance.
Gonna shock the world bro.

After the knockout, Curry responded, “I see no lies.”
