Jake Paul was left speechless after Nate Diaz made a quick exit from their face-to-face interview.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul is back in action on Saturday as he meets Diaz over eight rounds at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Paul is fighting for the first time since being beaten by Tommy Fury in February whilst Diaz hasn't fought since competing in his final UFC fight last September.

Diaz has been criticised for his lack of promotion for the fight and the UFC legend hasn't helped himself by walking out of his face-to-face interview with Paul. A teaser clip for the interview, which is released on Thursday, shows Paul giving credit to his opponent for his career before Diaz walks up and leaves.

"He's a warrior, he's put on some of the greatest fights in the history of MMA. He has an amazing fanbase, obviously people love him for a reason and I know he's coming to bring a war. That's what he says 'Ready for f****ng war'. I think the fans are the ones who get to win the most out of all of this because we both don't want to lose and back down," Paul said before Diaz stood up and insisted he would "be right back".

Diaz has defended his lack of promotion by insisting that his resume speaks for itself and he doesn't need to sell fights at this stage in his career. Paul has enjoyed entertaining build-ups in his latest fights against the likes of Fury and Tyron Woodley, something he is disappointed that Diaz has refused to engage in.

"For my own pleasure, I like to fight people where it's rowdy because it's more entertaining for the fans. It's not as fun if there's not as much s*** talk and funny moments leading up to the fight. That's why I do this, for my own joy and passion for this game. So it is disappointing for myself," Paul said.

"Nate has a massive name, he is a massive pay-per-view draw of UFC times. To me that's exciting because I haven't fought a massive pay-per-view draw in the prime of their career when they're still hot and active. There was this beef and online banter back and forth that we've been trying and wanting to fight for a long time.
