Nate Diaz demands UFC release him to fight Jake Paul

If the UFC does not book him a fight this summer, Nate Diaz has hinted that he will leave for a lucrative fight with Jake Paul.

Diaz hasn’t fought in the Octagon since June 2021, and he’s given Dana White an ultimatum, stating that unless he fights in July or August, he’ll demand his release.

The 37-year-old added to the pressure by implying that he has the option of pursuing a multimillion-dollar deal with Paul, despite the fact that he has “bigger s*** to do.”

Diaz made the announcement on Twitter, along with a video of Paul knocking out fellow MMA fighter Tyron Woodley.

Jake Paul may have other plans now

Paul, on the other hand, has big plans of his own, having agreed to fight boxing legend Mike Tyson before the year’s end.

On Jimmy Kimmel, Tyson threw down the gauntlet, saying that a fight could happen, but only by the end of 2022.

Paul stated, “Thank you to the great Mike Tyson for the respect and opportunity. This year we are making it happen.”

Throughout Paul’s five-fight professional career, which began when he defeated fellow YouTuber AnEson Gib, Tyson has been his biggest supporter.

The YouTube star then fought on the undercard of Tyson’s exhibition against Roy Jones Jr, giving him a significant platform to launch his career outside of the ring.

Paul has already announced that he will return to the ring on August 6, but he has yet to name an opponent, with Tommy Fury and UFC legend Anderson Silva rumored to be in the mix.

The 25-year-old, on the other hand, believes that a fight with Tyson would be the most likely to break the pay-per-view record.
