YouTube celebrity, Jake Paul, who has also stepped into the boxing world, sat down in an interview with Mike Bohn from MMA Junkie. He talked about potentially fighting Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor in the video posted on Instagram.
Bohn asked him about his desire to fight the main event combatants from UFC 196 and UFC 202. However, his primary focus was on finding out who ‘The Problem Child’ would fight first.
“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’.
‘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.”
He also expressed his excitement for the future while adding that he’s taking stuff one step at a time. Paul also referenced his fight against Ben Askren on April 17th by saying that he has a major milestone ahead of him.
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?
