Jake Paul plans to 'obliterate' UFC star Nate Diaz to set up 'massive' Conor McGregor fight

JAKE PAUL continues his trend to call out every combat fighter under the sun… this time it's Nate Diaz on the receiving end.

The Youtuber-turned-boxer is planning his next scrap after KO'ing Ben Askren inside one round at the weekend.

Paul is now 3-0 in his short boxing career but is certainly not shy in mixing it up with the big boys.

And with space in his diary for another fight this year, he is eager to get one star to bite.

Diaz fights Leon Edwards next month but Paul wants to ensure he's next in order to land his dream scrap with Conor McGregor.

Speaking to ESPN, the 24-year-old said: "I think people will immediately write me off but they're going to tune into watch.

"It's two massive names and it's a massive pay-per-view.

"When people see me obliterate him (Diaz), their jaws are going to drop, they're not going to know how to react and they're going to think it's rigged again.

"At that moment in time, I'll be undeniable to fight Conor McGregor because I beat the guy who beat him.

"The Jake Paul vs Conor fight is a massive fight so I'm like why wait? I don't need to be in this sport forever, I don't need 100 fights so why wait, let's do it right away."


Already this week Paul has called out UFC welterweight king Kamaru Usman after he demolished Jorge Masvidal.

Usman was added to the growing list of fighters name-dropped by Paul including Tyron Woodley, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Daniel Cormier.

His most likely opponent is Tommy Fury after confirming talks are underway.

The Paul/Tommy feud began when WBC champ Tyson Fury implored Paul to take on his younger brother.

Since then the pair have trash talked each other over social media and they are both keen to face one another in the ring.
