Jake Paul beat Nate Diaz via decision in the latter’s pro-boxing debut. Nate Diaz has now teased a possible comeback to MMA. He is also willing to rematch Jake Paul under the MMA rule-set which the 26-year-old agreed to.

Rafael Dos Anjos gave his honest opinion on that fight in a chat with TMZ Sports prior to facing Vicente Luque at the UFC Fight Night.

The Brazilian fighter said, “I don’t think so. I watched the result, I didn’t watch the whole fight but I don’t think he [Jake Paul] can train for. Nate [Diaz] is a fighter you know. He got good jiu-jitsu plus he has the fighter mentality. It’s a real fight man. When you go to the ground and elbows, the knees. It’s a different game.”

“I think Jake Paul can train as much as he wants, he don’t beat Nat Diaz”

Jake Paul has claimed that he is interested in returning to the UFC. Diaz left the promotion after submitting ‘El Cucuy’ Tony Ferguson at UFC 279.

Meanwhile, PFL reportedly offered a whooping $10 Million offer to Nate Diaz for competing under their banner. Prior to facing Jake Paul, the MMA veteran verbally declined the offer.

Nate Diaz Can Return To UFC Under All Sense

Dana White has been very prominent in his opinion on certain fighters. Following Francis Ngannou’s exit from UFC, White clarified that ‘The Predator’ would never ever compete for his promotion.

The UFC President didn’t say the same for Nate Diaz. White tagged his company to be Nate and Nick Diaz’ “home”. Thus a possible comeback of Diaz looks evident, especially when a trilogy clash against Conor McGregor is also on the charts.

It remains to be seen what happens in Diaz’s MMA journey and whether we will see him come across Jake Paul ever again.a
