Youtuber turned boxer Jake Paul has laid out some numbers stating how much a superstar like Nate Diaz should be making for a fight

Nate Diaz’s public request to be released by the UFC shocked MMA fans after UFC president Dana White had confirmed that the company might be working on a reformed deal. However, it looks like all negotiations have gone south, and Diaz is determinant on exiting from the company.

One of the biggest stars in the game today, Diaz has developed a cult following through his ‘ever-real’ personality and stout-hearted fighting style. Jake Paul had joined a list of fighters who took to Twitter to react to Diaz’s public plea, and urged the UFC to ‘Free Diaz’.

The movement has been set forth by Paul with all intents and purposes to set-up a boxing fight against Diaz. The ‘Problem Child’ has been calling for a fight against the Stockton slugger for the longest time, and this looks like the perfect opportunity for him.

Speaking about Diaz’s contract and what he should be making, Paul put out a tweet saying,

‘Monday

💰

Lesson: Nate Diaz should be guaranteed $20M per fight or 20% of the revenue of the event for fighting any of Dustin, Conor or Jorge. That’s 20% of all revenues (not just PPV). Pretty simple math. If you dispute this then you don’t know shit about the fight business.’

A fight between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz is highly possible now, since Diaz has been requesting a release and his longtime teammate and former UFC featherweight Chris Avila fought on the undercard of Woodley vs Paul 2.

Oscars 2022: Jake Paul offers $15m each to Will Smith and Chris Rock to fight out their differences on his undercard

Little did the host of Oscars 2022, world-renowned comedian Chris Rock know that his jokes would have some serious repercussions. The world was dumbfounded when Will Smith rushed to the stage to punch Chris Rock who poked fun at his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

While everyone was quick to jump on the incident and layout their thoughts, Jake Paul saw an immense cash-grabbing opportunity. He laid out a proposal for Smith and Rock to fight it out on his undercard in August.

He said, “I got $15m for Will Smith and $15m for Chris Rock ready to go. Let’s do it in August on my undercard”

To clarify that he meant serious business, Paul posted another tweet this time directed towards Will Smith’s representatives. He said, ‘ Someone get me on the phone with Will Smiths boxing representative asap’
