This Saturday in Dallas, Jake Paul and Nate Diaz go head-to-head in a boxing match. The hype surrounding this fight feels quite different from most Paul fights – has this impacted public anticipation for Diaz’s debut fight outside the UFC?
In this fresh edition of “Debating Combat,” the panel examines the Paul-Diaz fight, discussing the unusual buildup marked by Diaz’s unusually laid-back attitude, the pressure on each fighter, and the possibility that a loss to Diaz might not be disastrous for the YouTube celebrity, Paul. Furthermore, they delve into other topics such as the aftermath of UFC 291, Justin Gaethje’s apparent willingness to fight Conor McGregor, the probability of such a fight, Dustin Poirier’s reaction to his defeat by Gaethje, Derrick Lewis’s free agency and the likelihood of him joining the PFL instead of re-signing with the UFC, the upcoming UFC Nashville event, and the high stakes main event between Cory Sandhagen and Rob Font, among others.
