Jake Paul, the YouTuber-turned-prizefighter, emerged victorious in his latest battle against MMA fighter Nate Diaz. The highly anticipated match took place at the sold-out American Airlines Center, where Paul secured a unanimous decision victory.
In the opening round, Paul managed to land a powerful blow that rocked Diaz. Many believed that the fight would end quickly in Paul’s favor. However, Diaz displayed incredible resilience and fought back fiercely throughout the match.
Paul commended Diaz’s fighting spirit in his post-fight interview, stating, ‘He’s a warrior. I had him in the first round, but he kept on coming. No one has taken that much damage. All credit to my team and my conditioning.’
Despite Paul’s dominance, Diaz refused to back down. In the fifth round, Paul delivered a devastating blow that sent Diaz to the canvas. Miraculously, Diaz managed to recover and continued to battle until the final bell.
Following the fight, Paul issued a challenge to Diaz for an MMA bout. Diaz appeared open to the idea, and there is a standing $10 million offer from Paul and the Professional Fighters League (PFL) for Diaz to accept the challenge. However, Diaz insisted that the fight would need to be co-promoted by his own promotion, Real Fight Inc.
‘I’ll fight anybody,’ Diaz declared. ‘I don’t give a f—.’
Paul, at just 26 years old, has already established an impressive boxing record. He holds victories over former UFC champions Anderson Silva and Tyron Woodley, including a knockout win against Woodley. Additionally, he knocked out former MMA champion Ben Askren. Paul has been competing as a professional boxer since 2020.
On the other hand, Diaz, 38, made his professional boxing debut in this match. Throughout his illustrious career, Diaz spent 17 years in the UFC and became one of the promotion’s biggest stars. Notably, he submitted Conor McGregor, handing McGregor his first UFC loss, in 2016. Diaz left the UFC as a free agent after defeating Tony Ferguson in September of last year. He subsequently founded Real Fight Inc. and expressed his desire to pursue the most significant and intriguing fights on his own terms.
