Many MMA fans including his own fans asked the question whether Diaz has changed his mind and now asking for 6. Joseph Herrera has stated, “nate is the king of fishing, so many people in here confused.”

“This is the part where the 40 year old legend starts to worry about getting knocked out cold for the first time by Jake Paul. Jake Paul literally had a ‘superfight’ division made on PFL. Why don’t one of these MMA guys stipulate MMA first? Why didn’t PFL stipulate that?” a user commented. 

Another user commented from a different point of view. Khan stated, “He meant to say the 6th round in when he will finish jake.” 

As the fight will be involving Jake, who’s already boxing for a few years now against Diaz, a debutant hence a user said, “The more rounds the more likely you are to win. He ain’t got your cardio.” 

“Man I’d like to see you tko Jake in the 6th. It would probably be my favorite fight of all time! … except for Tyson vs Holyfield where Holyfield got his ear bit off… cuz I saw that ppv and it was CRAZY AF!!!” Dwight Mcceary commented. 

Wiseman however, can not take it as an indication that Diaz is going to beat Jake in the 6th round as he said,” Nah guys he’s saying that it would take 6 rounds to whoop Jake, witch won’t happen nate. ”
