After years of goading Nate Diaz, Jake Paul will finally get the opportunity to put his hands on the UFC legend on Saturday night. And we’re giving you all the details on how to watch the action.
Since transitioning into the world of combat sports, ‘The Problem Child’ has become one of the most polarising figures on the planet. His arrogance and ego have contributed to an overwhelming amount of hatred that has come his way. But this was all part of his ploy to generate interest; to be fair to him, it’s worked.
Paul’s match-ups with MMA legends Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley created enormous hype despite the fact neither man was renowned for their striking ability.
In addition, he actually managed to gain a degree of credit from the boxing community after his victory over Anderson Silva. However, his gimmick came tumbling down when he faced off with Tommy Fury.
The Brit utilised his snappy jab and fancy footwork to leave the YouTuber chasing shadows en route to winning a split decision victory.
Therefore, with his career on the line, Paul is setting foot back into the ring, knowing he has to win.
Diaz is undeniably one of the toughest men on the planet. The BJJ blackbelt is as durable as they come, with an unrelenting will to win. However, at the age of 38 and with boxing certainly not his forte, it looks likely that the ex-Disney star will add another big name to his record.
But to know for sure, you’ll have to tune in.
