UFC superstar and welterweight contender Nate Diaz took aim at YouTube star Jake Paul on social media Monday night. Diaz took to Twitter shortly after Paul shared a savage video calling out Conor McGregor.
The “Problem Child” Paul has a professional boxing record of 2-0. In his most recent bout, Paul knocked out NBA point guard Nate Robinson in the second round of Triller’s Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card. Before and after the Robinson fight, Paul challenged “Notorious” McGregor to a boxing match.
The Problem Child has now taken his callout of McGregor a step further, saying he has offered Notorious $50 million to fight him in a boxing match.
One person who is not a fan of Paul’s callout is Diaz, and he took to Twitter to let the YouTuber know.
“Jake Paul u need your a** beat for free u spoiled f*** u can’t really fight dumbs*** your gonna end up with your a** whooped for real somewhere talking like that,” Diaz wrote.

Shortly after, the Problem Child replied to Diaz. “You saw what happened to the other Nate,” Paul tweeted.
In his response, Diaz called upon Jake’s brother, Logan Paul, who is also a YouTube star and boxer, to “check” the Problem Child. “@LoganPaul check this little ho b**** before someone does,” Diaz wrote.
Paul Posted Multiple Times on Instagram About Diaz & His Teammate
The Problem Child shared a number of Instagram Stories Monday night aimed at Diaz and Bellator fighter AJ Agazarm. Agazarm is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelt and Diaz’s teammate. He recently posted a picture of the pair training at the Nick Diaz Academy.
According to Paul, he has already “beaten up” Agazarm, taking to Instagram to share a clip of himself sparring a person presumed to be Agazarm. In the clip, which Paul said is from three years ago, the Problem Child is getting the better of the fighter.
“Nate all you did is ‘kushups,’ you pothead. I do real pushups, man. Behind the back, b****, f*** you.”
Diaz Then Shared Footage of What Appears to Be Paul Submitting to Agazarm
Diaz cracked back at the Problem Child, taking to Instagram late Monday night to post a clip of what appears to be Paul inside a cage tapping out to an armbar courtesy of Agazarm.

Diaz Tweeted Twice Before Unleashing His Rant
Diaz took to Twitter shortly after Paul dropped the original Instagram video calling out McGregor. “Money can’t pay for that,” Diaz tweeted. “U should get f***** up for free.” The fighter from Stockton deleted the tweet shortly after posting it.
Minutes after the first tweet which he deleted, Diaz wrote, “Out of pocket.”
Just over an hour later, Diaz hit the Problem Child with his tirade.
Diaz hasn’t competed inside the Octagon since his UFC 244 bout against Jorge Masvidal in November 2019. The two welterweight stars competed for the “Baddest Motherf*****” belt and Diaz lost via doctor’s stoppage in between the third and fourth rounds.
