While Jake Paul was busy taking care of business against Nate Diaz on Saturday night, his older brother and WWE Superstar, Logan Paul, was involved in a ringside brawl.
Emanating from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, ‘The Problem Child’ earned his seventh career pro boxing win with a unanimous decision victory over Nate Diaz. Sitting ringside for the festivities was Logan Paul, fresh off his appearance at WWE Summerslam earlier that night. The elder Paul reportedly hopped a plane from Detroit to Dallas to witness his little brother’s highly anticipated clash with the ‘Stockton Samurai.’
But as it turned out, Jake Paul wasn’t the only one of the two brothers that got into a scrap in the Lone Star State. Logan Paul was reportedly involved in an altercation at ringside that resulted in a chair being thrown and another individual being knocked to the ground.
The incident occurred near the halfway point of Saturday’s main event when Logan Paul and his father got into a verbal altercation with another member of the crowd. In a video clip, which you can see below, Paul attempts to get security team members involved before things got a little out of hand.

Fortunately, the situation was quickly quelled and nobody appears to have been seriously injured in the brief scuffle.
Will Jake Paul and Nate Diaz Run It Back in Mixed Martial Arts?
With his win over Nate Diaz, Jake Paul moved to 7-1 in his pro boxing career, finding his way back into the win column after suffering his first defeat at the hands of Tommy Fury in February.
“There is this pressure off my shoulders now, I know that I’m meant to be here and I did exactly what I said I was going to,” Paul said during a post-fight interview. “When I lost, I came back and got better. I showed the world how to lose on the biggest stage and then come back to win on the biggest stage.
“It goes to show for anyone out there, take the loss on the chin and then come back the very next day and never stop. The loss was seriously the best thing because it set me on the path that I needed to be set on. You can’t cut corners in this sport, I was in the gym every day after my loss up until this fight.”
Next, Jake Paul will focus on making his long-teased mixed martial arts debut. Earlier this year, ‘The Problem Child’ revealed that he had signed with the Professional Fighters League. The goal is to make his debut inside the PFL Smart Cage in early 2024, presumably on the same night that another blockbuster PFL signee, Francis Ngannou, will make his own premiere for the promotion.
Following their 10-round clash, Paul doubled down on his $10 million offer to Nate Diaz for a meeting inside the Smart Cage, an offer that the ‘Stockton Samurai’ seemingly accepted, so long as it is a co-promoted bout with his Real Fight Inc.
