UFC icon Conor McGregor offers his prediction for Nate Diaz vs Jake Paul, dismissing Problem Child as ‘Donkey’

The experts’ predictions of Jake Paul Fighting have once again taken over the boxing world. Conor McGregor, for example, predicted the result in favor of his old UFC rival Nate Diaz while he takes on Jake in their upcoming boxing battle. 

In preparation for his homecoming fight against the seasoned MMA fighter, Jake, the internet phenomenon, is getting ready. The Problem Child and Diaz are scheduled to fight on August 5 at the Dallas American Airlines Center. 

What did Conor McGregor say regarding the fight between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz?

Conor and the Paul Brothers have been at odds for a while. Jake repeatedly threatened Conor, saying, if they engage in a boxing match, he will win. Recently, McGregor supported KSI, Jake’s bitter rival, after his contentious TKO victory over Joe Fournier. 

For a considerable amount of time, the former two-division UFC champion said nothing about The Problem Child.

However, the YouTuber-turned-boxer is now being mocked by the Irishman, who has recently begun to take things between him and Jake seriously. In a recent interview, Conor talked about the Jake-Diaz Fight and called Paul a donkey. 

“I fancy him for it to be honest. The other cat (Jake Paul) is a bit windy. He’s a donkey. The guy’s a donkey, the other cat. But a donkey has a kick as well. You just have to be worried about that.” Conor said

The rivalry between The Notorious and Nate Diaz

Conor has a long-standing animosity with Nate as well, even though the Irishman has sided with Nate for the boxing match. McGregor and Diaz each won one fight during their 2016 back-to-back blockbuster bouts. 

The iconic trilogy fight between Conor and Diaz is still in the fans’ sights. Numerous rumors suggest that Nate is ready to face Conor in the UFC again to put the matter to rest once and for all after dealing with Jake Paul in the ring.

In their first-ever match at UFC196, the American fighter stunned the world by defeating Mystic Mac. However, Conor and Nate faced up again just five months later, and Conor got the better of Nate right away. Conor will face Michael Chandler in the latter part of this year, and Diaz, who is 38, is not currently under contract with the UFC.
