Dane White has heaped praise on Nate Diaz’s performance against Jake Paul.
The MMA veteran suffered defeat to Paul in a lop-sided decision but the UFC boss believes Diaz ‘looked good’ despite the loss to the YouTuber-come-boxer.
“For a kid pushing 40 years old fighting a guy four weight classes bigger than him in boxing and two in MMA and going the distance at his age against a 20 f*cking something year-old kid, so far, he’s fared the best, he looked good. I’m happy for him.

Diaz and Paul could rematch in the near future but this time under MMA rules.
