Jake Paul has gone into over-drive with his taunting of Conor McGregor and Dana White to get a boxing match with Conor. He put out a video with a whole lot of profanity directed towards Conor. He also name-dropped Dana and Dustin Poirier in that video. However, the man that responded to that disrespectful video was none other than Conor’s old rival, Nate Diaz.
Diaz tweeted at Jake and asked him to keep control of his actions before he gets beat up in real life. After Paul made a comment about him beating Nate Robinson, Diaz tagged Logan Paul and asked him to keep his brother in check.
That is exactly what didn’t happen, as Jake proceeded to spam his Twitter with sparring videos. His opponent in those sparring videos? AJ Agazarm, one of the many students at Nick Diaz’s Stockton gym. Nate is one of the lead trainers there, and AJ has previously thanked Nate for everything that he did for him.

Considering how traditional Diaz is with people disrespecting him or his friends, this will seriously irk him. Despite that, it is unlikely that this beef escalates into something bigger.
Jake Paul: Barking up the wrong tree?
There are many fighters in the world you can try promotional stuff against. Nate Diaz isn’t one of them. He is known to be one of the harder guys in the sport, generating immense respect for his body of work. Even though Nate has tasted defeat more than many elite fighters have, his work ethic and toughness have been long heralded.
Jake Paul may be a good boxer, but trying to instigate Diaz is silly. The fact that Nate felt the need to interject when Paul’s shots towards Conor were getting personal says a lot about who he is as a person. He can let beef go in the interest of protecting the sport.
While Paul beating up Agazarm is impressive, you can see the evident size difference. Also, that isn’t really an elite boxer, so the footage doesn’t tell the true tale. Hopefully, this situation doesn’t become a massive issue. Especially because it is just over the promotion of a possible fight.
