Nate Diaz vs Jake Paul: Rap Star Drake Calls Out Reporter for Disrespecting Nate and Nick Diaz
At the pre-fight press conference, Diaz’s patience was tested when a reporter arrogantly claimed he could beat the out Nick Diaz, prompting Nate to furiously call the journalist “stupid” in defense of his brother.
Reporter asked Diaz, “I’m a boxer myself. I’m just trying to get into this undercard, I’m just thinking of fighting your brother Nick. I could beat his f**** a**.”
The exchange caused a stir on social media, with rapper Drake taking to Instagram to call out the “weak generation” for “playing with a real G” like Nate Diaz. You can check out the story below.
However, Dillon Danis, clapped back at Drake by accusing him of supporting Jake Paul, suggesting Paul was somehow behind the reporter’s antagonistic question to Diaz to stir up drama. He stated, “Meanwhile, Drake supports Jake and Jake made that kid to ask that question make it sense.” Here’s how Drake comments got received.

If the pre-fight buildup is any indication, there will be no love lost between Paul and Diaz once the bell rings. The hype and trash talk are real, but the fists will be flying once these fighters step into the ring.
