- Nate Diaz is a huge favorite over Jake Paul in their looming rematch in MMA, according to early odds
- Both are eager to do it again but Diaz has yet to make a decision about Paul’s offer
MMA is Nate’s game
Diaz may have failed to secure a victory in his pro boxing debut but most bettors are convinced the Stockton native would edge out “The Problem Child” in MMA. According to oddsmakers at BetOnline.ag, Diaz opens as the -1200 betting favorite (1/12) against the +650 (13/2) underdog Paul.
Nate still got it
It’s quite easy to see why the early odds show Diaz as a heavy favorite as it can be recalled that he put on a remarkable performance in his farewell MMA fight at UFC 279 against Tony Ferguson. At 37, Diaz still managed to last until the fourth round and even finished “El Cucuy” with a sensational Guillotine choke submission.
On the other hand, Paul has yet to make his pro MMA debut but has already signed with the PFL. The YouTuber-turned-boxing star has been vocal about his desire to also take over the world of MMA and he is looking forward to facing Diaz under the PFL banner.
Paul and the PFL has put a standing offer of $10 million on the table for Diaz but the MMA legend has yet to decide if he would agree to fight or not. However, Diaz also expressed his interest to run it back with “The Problem Child” either in MMA or boxing again.
