Nate Diaz remains one of the most legitimate fighters to have ever stepped foot inside the Octagon. Diaz last competed against Jorge Masvidal for the “BMF” title at UFC 244 back in November 2019. He lost the match via doctor’s stoppage, but he is far from finished in the fight game. Diaz also has lofty ambitions after retiring from MMA.
On the other hand, Jake Paul’s current character sees him as a heel who loves getting under the skin of his opponents before every boxing match. Jake Paul isn’t afraid to call out top UFC stars for fights as he has called out the likes of Nate Diaz on numerous occasions for a fight. At one time he even called Nate Diaz every day to book a fight against him.
Jake Paul even claimed that a boxing match between himself and Nate Diaz would sell 1.5 million pay-per-views. He even said that a fight against Nate Diaz would be light work for him.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, Nate Diaz was asked his thoughts on being called out by Jake Paul. Diaz had a hilarious response as he made it clear he couldn’t care less.
“Who? Who gives a f***? I’m into all the fights. Every fight. Anybody think they tough, they gon get it.”
It was also said that Nate Diaz could be Jake Paul’s next opponent as well. Michael Bisping also previously said that Jake Paul could defeat Nate Diaz in a boxing match. We will have to wait and see if the two will ever duke it out in the future or not.
