Jake Paul Nate Diaz rematch

Jake Paul’s reaction to Nate Diaz’s surprise guillotine choke during their boxing match was a mix of shock and disbelief, saying, “He genuinely choked me!”

In their Saturday night boxing duel, Paul experienced a taste of MMA tactics from Diaz. During the final moments of the 10th round, while both fighters were locked in a clinch, Paul dropped his head inadvertently, allowing Diaz to momentarily apply a guillotine choke. This fleeting submission move led to Diaz playfully taunting Paul, who has been vocal about his desire for an MMA rematch.

Paul, expressing his surprise at the post-fight press conference, said, “He truly was choking me. I was thinking, this is insane! I didn’t expect him to let go, but he did. Of course, I’m not going to attempt to counter it in a boxing match, but it was amusing. I thought, this is just wild.”

Having signed with the PFL, Paul has made it clear that he plans to transition to MMA and aims for Diaz as his first opponent.

Despite Paul having the upper hand in their boxing match, he is expected to be a considerable underdog against Diaz in an MMA bout. Regardless, Paul insists on his readiness to take on the challenge, even guaranteeing Diaz a $10 million purse for an MMA fight in the PFL.

Adding another intriguing twist to the story, Paul claims he did have a counter for Diaz’s guillotine choke, but it’s not permitted in boxing.

He added, “That’s why I’m interested in a rematch in MMA. It’s thrilling. I’m game for all of it. If it were MMA, I would’ve shot for a double-leg takedown, hoisted him up and slammed him on his head.”
