Nate Diaz Walks Out Of Head-To-Head Interview With Jake Paul

A video clip has emerged of Nate Diaz walking out of his head-to-head interview with Jake Paul ahead of their boxing match this coming Saturday night, August 5th in Dallas, Texas.

Paul was in the middle of praising Diaz for his fighting spirit when the former UFC fighter decided he didn’t want to be there any more and left.

“I know he’s coming to bring a war,” Paul had been telling Ariel Helwani prior to Diaz’s departure. “That’s what it says ‘ready for a f***ing war’. I think the fans are the ones who are going to win the most out of it because we both don’t want to lose or back down.”

“I’ll be right back,” Diaz could be heard saying, but he never returned.

This is nothing new for Diaz as he infamously left a pre-fight press conference with Conor McGregor early several years ago, prompting a near riot to break out in the process, while his brother Nick was well known for no-showing high-profile press gatherings prior to his bouts.
