Nate Diaz again requests UFC summer fight release. Jake Paul teases the future bout with Jake Paul: “I have bigger things to do”


Nate Diaz wants to close out his UFC contract in the next few months, or get an outright release as he seems to have his sights set on a boxing matchup with Jake Paul.

Diaz once more took to social media, politely asking the UFC to get him on a July card or August card, or to just let him go so that he could pursue other profitable ventures. Both of these requests have been made multiple times.

However, in this particular ask, Diaz teased a move to the squared circle to face Paul, showing the video of Paul viciously knocking out Tyron Woodley in their rematch this past December.

Paul is currently scheduled to close the show in an event at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York on Aug. 6 against an opponent yet to be announced. It is unlikely that Diaz, a popular MMA fighter, has been offered the fight. However, that doesn’t make it less likely that he will be fighting in the future.

Diaz last competed at UFC 263 a little over a year ago and lost a unanimous decision to upcoming welterweight title challenger Leon Edwards.
