JAKE PAUL had a front-row view for Conor McGregor's loss to Dustin Poirier last weekend – but nobody noticed the YouTube star in the crowd.
The social media sensation was cageside for the Irishman's UFC 264 trilogy fight with The Diamond, which he lost via first-round TKO.
But unlike at UFC 261, The Problem Child wasn't spotted by MMA fans as he was donning a bucket hat that kept him out of sight.
During the latest episode of the IMPAULSIVE podcast, Jake's brother Logan said: "When I walked in, I said to one of the UFC reps, 'Hey, is my brother here?'
"And she looks at me and she turned white.
"She goes, 'You brother's coming?' I go, 'I don't know.' She goes, 'F**k.' And I go, 'I don't think he's got anything planned.'
"He came in with a bucket hat and we were surely expecting like a 'f**k Jake Paul' chant but no one could see him because he wore a bucket hat.
"And because of that, no attention was drawn to him and he didn't really get to show off the chain at the event and he really get the chance to distract Conor like he wanted to.
"And 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, suffered a horrific broken leg in his rubber match with fan favourite Poirier.
And he's been on the receiving end of some vicious trolling from Paul -who has been trying to land a fight with him for the best part of seven months – ever since.

Paul also slammed the Irishman for his post-fight interview, in which he called Poirier's wife – Jolie – a 'h*e'.
On Tuesday, he said of the UFC's poster boy: "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 takes a picture with it 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."
Paul is currently gearing up for a showdown with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, whom he'll meet in a boxing match next month.
