JAKE PAUL has sensationally been backed to BEAT Nate Diaz by Michael Bisping.
A melee ensued backstage involving Diaz, with the 37-year-old filmed slapping a member of Paul’s entourage before being asked to leave the arena.
But speaking on his boxing fight at Paul’s weight would not end well for him.
He explained: “The majority of Nate Diaz’s fights have happened at 155(lbs), he was a lightweight.
“Then he went up to Welterweight 170lbs and he went 5-5, the only knockout he got was against Rory Markham in 2010. With boxing gloves on I don’t think it will be a good idea for Nate Diaz.
“Nate Diaz was a tremendous mixed martial artist. He beat some phenomenal people and had a tremendous career, you know he lost some fights and he won a lot of fights.
“The Jiu Jitsu would be gone, the kicking game is gone, just the general craftmanship and the game plans and the adversity of attacks; punches, kicks, knees, elbows, strangles, chokeholds, triangles, takedowns you name it, that’s what Diaz can do.

“Those are the advantages that he has over Jake Paul.
“If he was to fight Jake Paul and at that weight; 200lbs, 196lbs whatever they want to come in at – I don’t think it would go very well for Nate Diaz.”
While Bisping admitted he was wrong to dismiss Paul’s chances of beating Silva, he firmly told him to cool his interest in a fight with Alvarez.
He said: “I’m just going to say slow your roll on that one.
“Number one the fight is never gonna happen, secondly, shoot your shot.
“God bless him but he’s never gonna fight or beat Canelo Alvarez.”
