Nate Diaz vs. Jake Paul is more likely than Conor McGregor vs. Jake Paul
Jake Paul continues to call Conor McGregor, but it’s not a likely fight with each other, according to Michael Bisping. However, ‘The Count’ could certainly see Paul take on Nate Diaz in the near term.
In a new video posted to his YouTube channel, Bisping gives his perspective on the combat sports scene and the probability that Paul’s various super boxing fights come together. He say:
“Conor McGregor, I’d say he’s probably the most famous fighter on the planet. Definitely one of the richest, that’s true. He doesn’t need Paul. However, I understand Jake will work. He’s going to call McGregor out, he’s going to try and get the headlines. They’re back and forth, they’re talking crap. But whatever. I don’t think we’ll see Paul. vs. McGregor. Maybe we can see Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz because if Nate vs. Conor then Nate will come out the door and he’ll go beat Jake Paul.”
