Nate Diaz is certainly one of the most legitimate fighters to have ever stepped foot inside the Octagon. Diaz also has lofty ambitions after retiring from MMA. He also believes in Jake Paul for some reason.
Jake Paul has always been part of huge boxing matches, and he always manages to build up a ton of hype for his matches. Since last year, Paul had been hinting at facing Anderson Silva in a boxing match.
Paul then recently announced that he will be squaring off against ‘The Spider’ on October 29th in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Gila River Arena. While speaking during a recent press conference, Nate Diaz stated that he believes Jake Paul could defeat Anderson Silva.
“I think Jake Paul could win or do well too. He’s young, motivated, strong, inspired to box. So it makes for an interesting fight.”
We will have to wait and see if The Problem Child will be able to win the fight. It will certainly be his hardest challenge yet, but he also has momentum on his side right now.
