Jake Paul Picks Between Conor McGregor & Nate Diaz
Recently, Paul was interviewed by Morning Kombat to discuss potential boxing match ups between both McGregor and Diaz, who he has exchanged words with in the past.
Specifically, Paul was first asked about Diaz posting pictures of Paul on his social media page, indicating he wants to be released from his UFC deal to fight the YouTube star.
Paul isn’t too surprised by this, as he knows that he’s the big money fight in combat sports at the moment.
“He just knows that I’m the money fight where he’s going to make the most amount of money,” Paul said. “A lot of these guys know that. So they want to be let out of their contracts so they can get the pay day.”
Also, Jake talked about Mcgregor’s tweet about him being no body.
“Conor is gonna do everything he can to discredit me. But its clear he wants attention. If I am no body then why are you tweeting at me. Ten minutes after my MMA Hour interview comes out, its like he [Conor] had my notifications on.” Paul said.
In addition, Jake discusses the possibility of fighting Conor in the near future.
“I think it’s very possible.’ Paul Said. ” He just isn’t an active, I am the one who’s fighting, I am the one who’s building brand, I am the one who’s going up hill. While his whole entire career is going down hill. If the stars align we can make that fight happen.”
More so, Paul was asked about who he thinks is the more difficult fight between McGregor and Diaz. Paul picked McGregor to be the more difficult matchup due to his experience inside the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“I think Conor,” Paul said. “Just because of his experience in the ring with Floyd. He’s definitely a better striker. Nate gets hit a lot more.”
Currently, Paul is slated to box Hasim Rahman Jr. on pay-per-view (PPV) from Madison Square Garden on August 6.
He was initially expected to face Tommy Fury before Fury was denied entry into the United States, thus forcing Rahman to step in.
