Former UFC star Michael Bisping recently gave his take on the possibility of Nate Diaz fighting either of the Paul brothers, Logan and Jake in the future. He further noted the fact that UFC is unlikely to co-promote a fight featuring Jake Paul and one of their UFC talents. Jorge Masvidal Drops UFC Union Bombshell
Bisping wants to see Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz
Bisping feels stranger things have happened in the past so he wouldn’t be completely surprised if the matchup does get booked in the future. He also said that he’d love to see a fight between Nate Diaz and Jake Paul for which the Stockton native might have to leave Dana White’s promotion.
In a recently released video on his YouTube channel, Bisping stated the following:
“The UFC are very smart and, generally, someone like Nate Diaz isn’t just going to get to fight out of his contract. This is just the way they operate. A lot of promotions, they all do it. You negotiate before the final fight of the contract so who knows? I don’t think Dana would ever do a joint promotion with Jake Paul. I would love to see Nate Diaz vs. Jake Paul. I think that would be a tremendous fight but it’s not a case of that. Now I will say this you never know, I mean McGregor did go and fight Mayweather, so it’s not beyond the realms of possibility. I can’t see it happening to be honest, a co-promotion or anything like that but never say never,” Bisping said.
Diaz has just one more fight remaining under his current UFC contract and it turns out that the promotion will not be permitting him to have a bout before he inks down an extension. Diaz was expected to fight Vicente Luque by the end of the year.
