NATE DIAZ brutally fired back at Michael Bisping after he was picked to LOSE against Jake Paul.

Diaz is linked with a boxing match against YouTuber-turned prizefighter Paul.


And UFC legend Bisping backed the American social media sensation to win, drawing a furious reaction.

Dia, 37, posted a picture of Bisping getting knocked out by Dan Henderson in their 2009 fight.

And he captioned it: “The only fight I ever saw by this goofy f*****. Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me MB."

Diaz was ringside to watch Paul beat UFC icon Anderson Silva, 47, to go 6-0 and secure the most credible win of his career.

It has paved the way for the pair to potentially meet in the ring later next year.

And Bisping has hedged his bets on Paul, who has formerly beaten ex-UFC pair Ben Askren, 38, and Tyron Woodley, 40.

He said on his YouTube channel: “Listen, with boxing gloves on, I don’t think it will be a good idea for Nate Diaz.

"Nate Diaz was a tremendous mixed martial artist. He beat some phenomenal people, had a tremendous career. He lost some fights and he won a lot of fights.

"The jiu-jitsu would be gone, the kicking game is gone, the general craftsmanship and the gameplans and the adversity of attacks, punches, kicks, knees, elbows, strangles, chokeholds, triangles, takedowns, you name it.

"That’s what Diaz could do. Those are the advantages he’d have over a Jake Paul.”

Bisping, 43, added: “If he was to fight Jake Paul and at that weight, 200 pounds or 196 pounds, whatever weight they want to come in at, I don’t think it would go very well for Nate Diaz."
