Nate Diaz sends threatening message to Jake Paul and Leon Edwards after defeating Jorge Masvidal

Nate Diaz issued a scary call out to Jake Paul and Leon Edwards after finally getting a win over Jorge Masvidal.

The UFC legend, who lost when he first fought Masvidal in MMA five years ago, got his revenge when they rematched under boxing rules on Saturday night.

Nate Diaz outpointed ‘Gamebred’ over 10 rounds in front of his hometown fans at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

After securing a majority decision victory, the 39-year-old issued a call out to Jake Paul, who dropped him en route to a decision win last year.

Diaz also sent a message to UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards after wobbling the Englishman when they fought in 2021.

“I’m gonna beat Jake Paul’s f***ing ass,” he said post-fight.

“And I’m down to fight the highest-ranked boxer I can find.

“Get someone on a high level so people know who the f*** he is.

“My main objective has always been to be the best fighter in the world, so I wanna go back and get the UFC title.

“Leon Edwards, Jake Paul, and anybody the f*** else, you’re dead.”

The fight began with a shock as Masvidal came out in a southpaw stance, but it didn’t help him as Nate Diaz got off to an uncharacteristically fast start in round one.  

‘Street Jesus’ began landing in the second stanza and by the third frame, it was clear that he was looking for big counters on his opponent, who was relying on his ridiculous output.

Diaz was feeling himself in round four. The UFC icon pretended to be tired and walked away for a break before hitting his rival with a clean one-two combination.

Masvidal put him in his place with several massive punches when the taunting continued in round five before both men had their mounts in the sixth stanza.

The next six minutes were closely contested with both men finding success with their respective game plans. Diaz certainly landed more, but Masvidal kept catching him with big shots.

They slugged it out until the very end of a fight that could’ve gone either way.

Ultimately, the judges scored it for 95-95, 97-93, and 98-92 for Nate Diaz.
