Jake Paul trolls Nate Diaz after UFC star rubbishes Ben Askren's claim YouTuber is 'kind of good' at boxing

JAKE PAUL has slammed Nate Diaz after the UFC star took aim at Ben Askren for praising the YouTuber's boxing skills.

The 24-year-old knocked out the former MMA ace in the first round in April to record his third consecutive victory inside the squared circle.

It was expected to be the ex-Disney actor's hardest fight since turning professional, but he silenced his critics in emphatic fashion.

Paul then outpointed former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley on a split decision in August.

And Askren, 37, has admitted he was surprised by Paul's qualities during his appearance on Lex Freidman’s podcast.

He said: "So the thing I said when I went in to fight him [Jake Paul] is maybe he’s good or maybe he’s not. We really have no idea to this point, you know

"I knew that Tyron was a lot better in boxing than I was.

"And so I thought that there is a good likelihood that Tyron beats him up but there is a chance that Jake is kind of good at this.


"I think what played out is he’s kind of good at it.

"And if you saw the way I saw it, he was still impressive in his showing and he has obviously put a lot of time into it. So, he’s not bad, I’ll say that much.”

UFC welterweight Diaz hit out at Askren over his views, as he tweeted: "Coming from a retired wrestler who can’t fight or box."

Paul then chimed in, as he compared Diaz's 13 defeats inside the octagon to Askren's two.

He remarked: "You have six times as many losses as Ben Askren. Let that sink in."

Diaz then fired back: "He sucks Jake. You’d get smoked n a real fight tho (sic).

"You can’t really fight boxing matches with wrestlers only. Let that sink in."

Paul is currently preparing for his dust-up against Tommy Fury in Florida next month.

And he has vowed to embarrass the Fury family as he looks to knock out TNT.

He said: "One month to go until December 18th and a complete embarrassment of the Fury family.

"Mark your calendars now to witness history in Tampa."
