Jake Paul appears to be one of the possibilities open to Nate Diaz now that he has more freedom to do so.
“(Jake Paul) is for sure one of the options,” Diaz said.
“He’s doing big stuff. He’s doing big things. He’s got a big fight ahead of him. If he wins that, I’m sure people will be really impressed by it. And if Anderson (Silva) does his thing on him, that’s impressive also. Now we’ve got a fight on his hands. I’m looking forward to it.”
“From 17 or 18 years old, I was starting to fight, I was boxing with my boxing coach,” Diaz said.
“There were boxers all over my gym, and I was going to box initially, but MMA shows were more around my area, and they were happening, so I got stuck in MMA. I got stuck in a cage this whole time with contracts and stuff. Now everything is open for the taking. I never stopped training for a boxing fight since I started fighting. When the right opponent or right thing comes, we’re going to take it.”
