Michael Bisping on Paul vs Diaz

The former UFC fighter Michael Bisping recently on his YouTube channel spoke about the upcoming battle between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz and explained why it’s a smart move for Paul to face Diaz next.

“Jake’s the bigger, more explosive guy, and that’s why he’s picked this fight, you know what I mean?” Bisping said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “And I hope I eat my words. Of course I do.

But it’s a very, very smart matchup. It’s a very smart pick”. Bisping further said: “In a mixed martial arts cage, in a UFC octagon, on the street, whatever, he’s not someone you want to trifle with,” Bisping said.

“But you take away a lot of his skills and just rely on boxing only – he’s got good power. He wobbled Leon Edwards in that fifth round, he wobbled Conor McGregor in the second round, that’s how he got that win.

“I’m not ripping on Nate Diaz. But you never look and go, ‘He’s got blinding, lightening-fast hands.’ He could take a shot, he keeps going forward, he’s tough as nails”.
