Renowned former Disney Star Jake Paul experienced his first defeat earlier this year in February against Tommy Fury. However, he is now prepared to face another setback in a fight against former UFC fighter and The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner Nate Diaz.
Despite not retiring from fighting, Diaz’s contract with the UFC expired in November of last year, rendering him a free agent. Although Diaz possesses impressive skills in Jiu-Jitsu, boasting a third-degree black belt, his upcoming match against Paul will be his first official boxing fight.
With a significant age difference of 12 years, Paul enters the fight with six victories and a single loss. In contrast, Diaz has accumulated 22 wins and 13 losses throughout his career in MMA, providing him with extensive experience in striking.
The highly anticipated pay-per-view (PPV) event is scheduled to take place today on Saturday, August 5th, at 8pm ET, while the main event begins at approximately 11:30pm ET. The American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, will serve as the venue for this thrilling bout.
