Jake Paul, Nate Diaz teams throw punches at prefight faceoff

Things got physical onstage Thursday at the Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz news conference after the two main-event fighters did their traditional faceoff.

Both camps’ security teams got into a shoving match with punches thrown after things became heated between Paul, Diaz and their respective crews.

Diaz and Paul were mostly on the outskirts of the skirmish.

The news conference got heated when a member of Paul’s Betr media team egged Diaz on with a question, saying he couldn’t wait for Paul to knock Diaz out.

The same person talked trash about Diaz’s brother, Nick, another UFC veteran, at a news conference in May.

Later Thursday, Paul posted about Diaz: “You threatened MVPs co-founder who has been a partner to you and your team every step of the way? He’s put your best friend on over and over again. Stupid.”

The two teams also got into it last October at Paul’s fight versus Anderson Silva and Diaz slapped the security guard during the fracas. Diaz reminded the security guard of that several times during the media session.

“That security guard who got clowned on stage with Nate, he’s the one who started the s—,” stated Chris Avila, Diaz’s teammate who squares off with ex-UFC fighter Jeremy Stephens on Saturday. “He needs his ass whooped.”
