Video: Jake Paul, Nate Diaz’s crews involved in fierce melee following intense press conference

Jake Paul Nate Diaz brawl

Jake Paul and Nate Diaz steered clear from physical confrontation themselves, although the same can’t be said for their respective crews.

A fiery press conference, characterized by a verbal volley of curses between the fighters, proceeded without physical conflict, despite being in front of a Dallas audience. However, the moment Paul and Diaz were apart, the atmosphere turned volatile, but not because of the two main event contenders for Saturday night’s fight.

The altercation instead originated from some shoving among security personnel and team members representing both Paul and Diaz, which escalated into a full-blown brawl on stage. With Paul and Diaz out of the way, a multitude of people got involved in the chaotic scene, though those security guards not actively fighting were quick to diffuse the situation before it spiraled out of control.

During the press conference, Diaz pointedly addressed a member of Paul’s security, with whom he’d apparently had a previous dispute. Whether this specific security member participated in the subsequent brawl remains unclear.

“The real bully? That bouncer over there who I smacked with a beer when he thought he was tough,” Diaz proclaimed. “I hit that jerk right in the face. He’s the bully. To hell with him, to hell with you, and to hell with MVP.”

Paul responded to Diaz’s diatribe with a grin, encouraging Diaz to continue his tirade while promoting his rematch offer for an MMA fight after their upcoming boxing match.

“Bring it on. I’m loving it,” Paul responded. “Nate’s fired up. We’ve stirred the sleeping giant. Bring it on, Nate. I’m loving it. Speak your mind, Nate. Speak your mind.”

Despite the press conference taking a nasty turn momentarily, Diaz remained unfazed by the incident, particularly given his history of being involved in far more intense situations. Many remember the infamous 2016 incident involving Diaz and his team throwing water bottles at Conor McGregor, who retaliated by throwing soda cans during a brawl at the MGM in Las Vegas.

This time, Diaz didn’t appear overly concerned by the brawl between his team and Paul’s.

“There’s no need for disrespect and excessive trash talk,” Diaz commented during the broadcast. “I’m here to compete. He’s a little punk and that’s what I’m dealing with, and I’m prepared for that. Whatever comes my way, I’m ready for a full-on battle. I’m cool with it.”

Following the incident, Paul took to social media to claim that Diaz’s team was distressed about the brawl, which allegedly resulted in someone needing stitches once the two crews were separated.

“Diaz’s team has contacted mine alleging assault after his crew threw the first punch,” Paul posted. “Seems like the guy who started it all is now in the hospital getting stitches. It’s amusing how these pretentious thugs are behaving!”
