Nate Diaz has responded to Jake Paul’s $10 million offer for an MMA fight, setting some conditions for its occurrence. After their upcoming 10-round boxing match, Diaz “probably” plans to return to the UFC. If there is a potential MMA rematch, it would need to take place either in the octagon or under a similar arrangement to their boxing match.
Diaz has made it clear that he won’t fight in the PFL (Paul’s MMA organization) and is looking for a co-promotion if they do something together. Currently, Diaz’s company, Real Fight Inc., is sharing the proceeds 50-50 with Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions for their boxing match, and they have secured cooperation from pay-per-view providers DAZN and ESPN+ for the broadcast.
While Diaz is focused on his upcoming fight with Paul, he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of returning to the UFC or participating in MMA or boxing matches in the future. He has been on good terms with the UFC despite leaving as a free agent and remains open to a potential comeback.
This weekend’s 185-pound contest between Diaz and Paul will be significant for both of their careers, and an MMA bout between them is still a possibility down the line.
