The initial Jake Paul and Nate Diaz bout was a blockbuster. It was Diaz’s debut in boxing and Paul’s first opponent from UFC. Their bout ended up with Paul winning it through a unanimous decision. However, Diaz’s boxing despite being a newcomer was praiseworthy, at least to some.

Paul promised Diaz that their rematch would be happening in the MMA arena and was supposed to happen at the end of this year but there are no signs of that as of now. In his frustration, Paul called out Diaz for not acknowledging the promise and stated that Diaz was ducking the fight.

Daniel Cormier believes Dustin Poirier should fight Conor McGregor

Dustin Poirier recently made a statement that indicated that he might face Conor McGregor for a final battle but there were some hints of darkness in his words. He added that the fight is meaningless for now. However, Daniel Cormier thinks that Poirier should take on McGregor.

The former dual weight champion in his recent YouTube video advised Poirier to not back down on his fight against McGregor. “I was just really happy to kind of help him[Dustin Poirier] as he was making his decision on the fight and everything. But now that he has beaten McGregor two in a row, there should not be any hesitancy to fight him again,” said Cormier.
