Celebrity pugilist Jake Paul and former UFC attraction Nate Diaz managed to get through their pre-fight press conference staredown without making contact and for a hot minute, it appeared the media festivities would conclude without any drama.

LOL ... yeah, no.

READY FOR WAR! International superstar and serial risk-taker, Jake “The Problem Child” Paul, is once again up against a very big (and very different) challenge in regard to his budding combat sports career when he takes on former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) superstar (and Conor McGregor slayer), Nate Diaz, inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on Sat., Aug. 5, 2023, streaming live on DAZN pay-per-view (PPV). “Paul vs. Diaz” which will also feature multiple-time women’s boxing champion, Amanda Serrano, battling former WBO queenpin, Heather Hardy, for the undisputed Featherweight title in DAZN’s PPV co-main event. Special start time is slated for 8 p.m. ET, with a PPV price tag of $59.99.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

It looked as though security from Team Diaz didn’t appreciate the way it was being dealt with by Team Paul. Words were exchanged, hands were thrown, then all hell broke loose onstage. The producers behind the board quickly ended the feed and viewers were subsequently lectured by the analysis team on the horrors of street fighting.

Don’t hire a “bully” like Diaz then act shocked when the s—t hits the fan.

Paul and Diaz will fight at 185 pounds across 10 rounds atop the DAZN pay-per-view (PPV) card this Sat. night (Aug. 5, 2023) at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, a fight card (see it here) co-headlined by the 10-round featherweight title fight (and championship rematch) between Amanda Serrano and Heather Hardy.
