DANA WHITE ADMITS NATE DIAZ & JAKE PAUL SHOULD FIGHT NEXT: “THAT MAKES SENSE”

WHAT HAPPENED?

Despite recent and rather public contract disputes, UFC President Dana White actually agrees that Nate Diaz should be pushing for a fight with Jake Paul next.

Having asked for his release just 24 hours prior on social media, Diaz implied that he had “bigger sh*t to do” than wait around for one last UFC fight to be made.

Dealing with Nate is always… interesting. I don’t know what we’re gonna do.I like Nate but let’s be honest, Nate’s won one fight in the last five or six years.

When these guys get into these positions, guys that have been with us for a long time, you want to be fair to everybody, you want to do the right things. Nate Diaz isn’t going to come in and fight Kamaru Usman. He probably should go on and fight Jake Paul. That’s a fight that makes sense.

Having made rare exceptions in the past for super-fights outside of the UFC, including McGregor vs Mayweather, there’s always a chance we see White and Diaz come to terms on a deal for a Paul fight.
