UFC legend Nate Diaz became the latest MMA star to call out Jake Paul for a fight.

Paul, a YouTuber, made the news after knocking out Nate Robinson, a basketball star. However, Paul called out Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis right after the win.

He also claimed that he would knock them down and posted a rather unbelievable video where he abused Dana White and McGregor.

While the Irishman hasn’t reacted to his, White has suggested that he might allow two-division UFC champion Amanda Nunes to fight Paul.

Paul’s coach, BJ Flores rejected any notion of the YouTuber going up against Nunes, one of the greatest female MMA athletes.

Diaz, for his part, lost his cool after the abusive video and lashed out at Paul. However, Flores wants Paul to realistically fight Diaz or Danis next.

An advantage for Paul

Flores was on The Schmozone podcast and claimed that a fight against Danis or Diaz was realistic. He also explained why a fight against Diaz would be advantageous for Paul:

“Who I would like Jake fighting next, who he is calling out, it looks like Dillon or Nate Diaz either one of these guys.

“Nate Diaz called Jake out, it wasn’t like Jake was going after Nate. I mean, Nate is underestimating Jake greatly and I think it is a big advantage for us and if Nate wants, and he is a bigger name than Dillon Danis, by quite a bit.

“I love that style match up for Jake and his fight. As long as we are in the boxing ring, we are going to be just fine.”

Diaz is one of the toughest fighters in the world of MMA but it is to be seen if he gets into the boxing ring with Paul.

The UFC star was compared to boxing great Tyson Fury by one of the greatest cutmen ever in the sport, and he could don the gloves once to knock some sense into Paul
