I think Nate Diaz will probably happen first. I think Conor needs to get some wins under his belt. Conor is owned by Dana White. In a way, Conor is Dana White’s b****,” Paul answered.

Paul will look to secure a resounding win over Askren to engage in more call-outs against the combat sports world. Moreover, some fans will look at his latest interview as him taking yet another shot at ‘The Notorious’.

Jake Paul believes that Dana White owns Conor McGregor

‘The Problem Child’ said that Conor needs Dana White’s permission to fight him and added, “Nate Diaz only has two more fights in the UFC, so if he can complete those this year, then it’s freed up, and Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz will happen in 2022. That’s sorta the talks that are happening right now, and once I beat Nate Diaz, once I embarrass him actually, I will be undeniable to McGregor.”

Paul previously fought and defeated Nate Robinson and AnEsonGib, finishing them both in the first round. He also beat another popular YouTuber Deji in his first fight.

Nate Diaz would be a huge step up in competition, and MMA fans would back his striking skills. Do you think Jake Paul would stand a chance against the Stockton native?
