UFC welterweight Randy Brown gave his analysis and prediction for the upcoming boxing match between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz. 

On August 5, ‘The Problem Child’ looks to bounce back from his first professional boxing loss against Tommy Fury. The YouTube-turned-fighter will take on Diaz, hoping to prove his striking skills can translate to the boxing ring. 

Diaz has showcased high-level boxing skills throughout his MMA career. With that said, there is a massive difference between boxing MMA fighters and boxers with in-ring experience. During an interview with InsideFighting, Brown discussed the Stockton native’s abilities in “the sweet science”:

“I think Nate Diaz doesn’t have great boxing, I think he has great elements of boxing, I think there’s things that he incorporates well from boxing in his game and he has great drop punches because he carries his hands very high so there’s no tell and then he just drops them on you”

Diaz last fought in September 2022, defeating Tony Ferguson by a fourth-round submission at UFC 279. The Stockton native has established an impressive resume throughout his MMA career, including wins against Anthony Pettis, Conor McGregor, and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.

Randy Brown predicts Jake Paul will beat Nate Diaz

The narrative for Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz is similar for most fighters and analysts. Diaz’s pressure and cardio are his most significant advantages, but Paul’s boxing experience and power could be the difference-maker. 

During the same interview with InsideFighting, UFC welterweight Randy Brown provided his prediction by saying: 

“I think he [Diaz] gets destroyed in a boxing match. Jake Paul is a boxer by this point, we have to give credit where credit is due and he’s a boxer. He might not be an extremely high-level boxer but at this point, he’s boxing primarily you know that’s where he spends most of his time whereas a lot of MMA fighters, we have to split our time between so many different things. It’s been a few years now, realistically I look at him now as a really good amateur.”

Before losing against Tommy Fury, Paul was on the verge of silencing the doubters that said he wasn’t a legitimate professional boxer. Since turning pro in 2020, ‘The Problem Child’ has secured wins against AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley x2, and Anderson Silva

The 26-year-old now looks to add another MMA legend to his resume by defeating Diaz on August 5.
