This weekend, the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas will host a highly anticipated boxing match between Nate Diaz and Jake Paul. While Paul is making his return to the ring, this will be Diaz’s first boxing debut. The fight has caught the attention of rap artist Drake, known for his high-roller sports betting.

Drake took to Instagram to reveal his allegiance for the fight, placing a staggering $250,000 bet on Diaz to win. The Grammy award-winning artist expressed his confidence in the Stockton native and stands to earn $1,000,000 if Diaz emerges victorious. In his Instagram story, Drake captioned the post with, ‘Jake is a dog, but I can never bet against a Diaz brother. That’s just how I was raised.’

Bradley Martyn, a Hollywood actor and fitness YouTuber, has recently made controversial comments about MMA fighters, including claiming he could defeat ONE flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson in a street fight. Jake Paul, in response, offered Martyn a seven-figure sum during an episode of BS w/ Jake Paul.

Paul challenged Martyn to accept a fight offer against former UFC star Mike Perry. The condition was that the fight would be a ‘street fight,’ not boxing or MMA. Paul emphasized that Martyn should ‘man up or shut up’ and even mentioned that Perry is already on board with the idea. Perry himself called out Martyn on Twitter, stating, ‘I [email protected], I’m 180, but I hit like 260 brotha, accept the offer, and I’ll see you in Saudi Arabia alhumdulla.’

The ongoing feud between Ariel Helwani and Jamahal Hill continues to escalate. Hill, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, released a video on his YouTube channel criticizing Helwani for his interview with Jiri Prochazka. Hill believed that Helwani was disrespectful and made subtle digs at his expense.

In response, Helwani invited Hill onto his show to address their issues. However, Hill declined the offer and accused Helwani of trying to create controversy between him and Prochazka. Helwani, in turn, believes that Hill is prolonging the drama to gain more traction on his YouTube channel.

Helwani took to Twitter to express his thoughts, stating, ‘Jamahal with another response to the response to the response? Sheesh. So much drama. Good content for the budding channel tho! Well played.’
