Jake Paul thinks Nate Diaz is an easy opponent for next boxing match.

Paul took the next step in his boxing journey by beating MMA legend Anderson Silva on October 29. Backstage earlier in the evening, Nate Diaz – who was in attendance to support his teammate Chris Avila – had an argument with one of Paul’s team members. 

During the altercation, Paul was busy preparing for his fight with Silva. The Youtuber was notified about the incident, and after his victory, he called Diaz out.

Paul provided a detailed explanation of what happened.

“They were talking sh*t to someone on my team, and Nate’s team was flipping them off, and then they threw a water bottle at my teammate,” Paul said. “And then they started just throwing liquids and boxes and s*** up in the air, My security got involved and rushed them and they backed all the way down the hallway.”

It didn’t take long for people to start wondering who could be next for ‘The Problem Child.’

The 25-year-old social media icon joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, where he was asked about potentially fighting Nate Diaz in 2023. He had this to say:

“If he’s actually out of his UFC contract, I would be down. I just beat one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time. Nate Diaz is easy work. Anderson Silva is way more difficult than Nate Diaz. He’s slow and at the end of his career. He’s lost it, as far as striking. Maybe he still has jiu-jitsu. But as far as striking and all that, he’s just a street fighter, and boxing is the purest sport. It’s art. You can’t come in and street fight someone in a boxing match. Anderson has length, has the height, Anderson hits harder, is more slippery, has better head movement, the list goes on. So I know that Nate is easier.”

‘The Problem Child’ advanced his professional boxing record to 6-0 with four wins inside the distance. He has continued to be doubted by fans, including some with bizarre conspiracies about his fights being fixed.

Jake Paul Denies Allegations about Fights Being Rigged

No matter what Jake Paul does, people will find a reason to discredit him. After fighting Anderson Silva, a video of ‘The Spider’ being knocked down led to conspiracy theories about the fight being rigged. During the same interview on The MMA Hour, Paul had this to say regarding the allegations:

“I lose faith in my generation and my peers and us as a society in a world when I see that type of stuff and that type of stupidity. It just sucks. It sucks because I worked so hard for this. I dedicate everything. Sacrifice everything every single day. Bust my balls. Have a 15-person team working around the clock to help me become the best boxer possible, and when I do something, like beating Anderson Silva, they try to take it away from me. I know deep down, and I guess that’s all that really matters.”

Say what you want about Paul, but nobody expected him to get this far in boxing. Although he did not start fighting at a young age, like most boxers, the resources available from his wealth could make up for lost time, depending on what ‘The Problem Child’ actually wants to accomplish.
