Jake Paul vows to 'rip head off wannabe gangster' Nate Diaz in grudge fight

Jake Paul has slammed Nate Diaz for refusing to promote their fight and vowed to "rip his head off" when they meet in the ring.

Paul faces his latest challenge in UFC legend Diaz this Saturday as the pair meet over eight rounds at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The YouTube boxer is looking to bounce back to winning ways after his first defeat at the hands of Love Island star Tommy Fury in February and he could hang up his gloves sooner than expected if he loses to Diaz.

Diaz is known for not playing by the rules and he lived up to his expectations by refusing to take part in most of his media obligations ahead of facing Paul. The former UFC bad-boy walked out of his launch press conference with Paul in May and their face-to-face interview earlier this week, something that has angered Paul.

"I think people get confused by me promoting the fight, like I'm just messing around by making these skits and having fun. They think I'm not going to come in and take this guy's head off, I'm going to. He's a wannabe gangster, he's been disrespectful and unprofessional. I'm very a nice guy but as soon as the bell rings I'm ripping his head off," Paul told Stephen A Smith.

Paul has played mind games with former opponents such as Tyron Woodley and Fury by giving them gifts in the lead-up to their fight. The YouTuber was seemingly on good terms with Diaz when their fight was announced but has lost patience with him in recent weeks. Diaz was called out by Paul after his wins against Woodley and Anderson Silva as he will now get the chance to beat another UFC legend.

"I've always wanted this fight with Nate Diaz and there's been beef there," Paul added. The whole reason this all started was because people were talking smack to me and I had to settle the beef. He said a lot of things about me, my family and my career. Saying that he is going to beat my a**.

"I'm not ok with that so I want to settle the beef man to man. Nate is a massive name and brings a lot to the table, he's been boxing since 16 years old with world champions like Andre Ward. He makes exciting fights because he's tough and comes forward, so I think the fans are the ones that are going to win out of all of this."
