Logan Paul has been criticized by UFC veteran, Nate Diaz
Sharing his thoughts on Logan Paul – whom suffered a decision loss to YouTuber and musician, KSI in his sole professional boxing match, Diaz criticized he Ohio native for voicing his opinion on the fight between his brother and Fury mid-fight.
“This guy (Logan Paul) needs his ass beat,” Nate Diaz tweeted. “And who let the spoiled lil b*tch yell obnoxious sh*t during the fight?”
In the immediate aftermath of his loss against Fury, Paul, who boasts prior boxing wins over former mixed martial arts champions, Anderson Silva, Tyron Woodley, and Ben Askren, called for a rematch with the Manchester native.
“We can run it back,” Jake Paul explained. “I think we deserve that rematch. All respect to Tommy (Fury), he won. Don’t judge me by my wins, judge me by my losses. I felt flat – I got sick really bad twice in this camp, injured my arm. This wasn’t my best performance, but that’s no excuse.”
