Jake Paul warned against taking on ‘real fighter’ Nate Diaz as UFC star’s team-mate says he would would win ‘hands down’

JAKE PAUL has been warned against facing ‘the realest fighter of all time’ by Nate Diaz’s training partner.

Paul recently called out Diaz – and Jorge Masvidal – after knocking out ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley in their rematch.

On the undercard, Chris Avila beat Anthony Taylor, a former sparring partner of the YouTuber’s.

And Avila, a long-time team-mate of Diaz in their home of Stockton, gave the green light for his mentor to box Paul.

He told MMAFighting: “I’m down to see that fight. But when you fight Nate Diaz, you’re getting the realest fighter of all time right there.

“So these guys are sitting here calling his name and eventually he’s going to get in the boxing ring and I’m excited to see it.

“Who he’s going to box is his choice. He’s going to make a stamp and a statement in boxing, easy.”

Paul, 24, was set to face Fury, 22, this month until the British former reality TV star pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.


Woodley, 39 then signed as a late replacement but was knocked out in the rematch, just three months after losing on points.

He now joins YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, on Paul’s KO list.

But Avila, 28, insisted Diaz, 36, will not suffer the same fate as former UFC pair Askren and Woodley.

He said: “Jake Paul’s team is zero. We’re one up already.

“That last fight was a Paul-Diaz, team versus team, Jake Paul made that. They’re already down one.

“So if he wants to get in the ring with Nate or me, it would be fine with either of us. I know that’s a fight I can win.

“I know that’s a fight Nate would win, hands down. Easy money.”
