UFC president Dana White has said he thinks Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz ‘makes sense’ at this point in Nate’s career and is a fight that ‘should’ happen.

With just one fight left on his UFC contract, Nate tweeted on Monday night calling for Dana to either set up a bout for him or release him.

He wrote: “UFC release now please or give me fight with anyone in July or August, I have bigger s*** to do.”

Interestingly, accompanying this tweet was a video of Jake Paul KOing Tyron Woodley.

Nate was seemingly suggesting that his aim was now to box Jake in the not-too-distant future.

In response, Dana told TheMacLife on Tuesday: “Listen, dealing with Nate is always, y’know, fun, exciting, interesting. I don’t know what we’re gonna do.

“Listen, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to look at it and see it’s lots of game playing and whatever.

“Contractually we’ve gotta get him a fight. We’ll get him a fight.”

When asked if he’d roll his eyes at the idea of Jake vs Nate, Dana replied: “No. I like Nate, let’s be honest – Nate’s won one fight in the last five or six years.

“When these guys get into these positions, we’ve got guys that have been with us for a long time that we respect, that we care about.

“Donald Cerrone, Anthony Pettis before he left, Nate Diaz and Nick Diaz.

“So you wanna be fair to everybody, you wanna do the right things.

“Nate Diaz isn’t gonna come in and fight Kamaru Usman.

“Listen, we’re trying to do the best we can, trying not to s*** on anybody or disrespect anybody, but it’s not like we’re talking about Kamaru Usman here.

“We’re talking about Nate Diaz, Nate’s won one fight in five years, so we’re trying to figure this thing out with him.

“He probably should go on and fight Jake Paul. That’s a fight that makes sense.”

After seeing these remarks, Nate once again took to social media to respond.

He tweeted: “Send the release,” along with emojis representing Jake Paul and boxing.
