Former Disney Star Jake Paul had his first loss handed to him back in February this year against Tommy Fury. He’s back now to claim his second L against former UFC fighter and The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner Nate Diaz.
Diaz hasn’t retired from fighting as of yet. However, his contract with the UFC ran out in November last year, and since then, he’s been a free agent. Diaz is a third-degree black belt in Jiu-Jitsu and has a street-like fighting style, though it will be his first time stepping into a ring for an official boxing fight.
Paul is 12 years younger than Diaz, and is going into the fight with six wins and one loss under his belt. Diaz, on the other hand, has 22 wins and 13 losses in his MMA career, with a lot more experience in striking.
The pay-per-view (PPV) is scheduled for today, Saturday, August 5th, at 8pm ET. The main event starts at roughly 11:30pm ET. The fight will take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Here is a list of fights taking place before the main event:
- Luciano Ramos vs. CJ Hamilton (Super lightweight)
