Jake Paul called out both Nate Diaz and Canelo Alvarez are moving to 6-0 with a win over Anderson Silva.
Paul, having been out of action for nearly a year, had his toughest test to date inside the squared circle against the longest-reigning champion in UFC history but passed with flying colours.
Afterwards, Paul was interviewed by Ariel Helwani and first went after another UFC fighter in Diaz, who was in attendance for the fight.
Diaz’ teammate and fellow Stockton native Chris Avila was on the undercard, beating Doctor Mike’ Varshavski – and the 37-year-old got into an altercation with a member of Paul’s entourage and was reportedly escorted out.
It feels like the next natural step for Paul, though he is also desperately to mix it up with four-weight world champion Canelo.
“I want Nate Diaz, who’s a b***h,” Paul said in the ring after another win.
“He tried to come into my locker room, he tried to cause some s**t. And then he always leaves the f***ing arena.
“So Nate Diaz, stop being a b***h and fight me. And Canelo, you too Canelo. You guys say, ‘Oh you can’t beat a striker, you can’t beat a legend like Anderson Silva’
“I just did it. So why can’t I beat Canelo?”
Canelo, meanwhile, suffered a shock defeat to Dmitry Bivol for the light heavyweight title in May but bounced back by emerging victorious in the trilogy bout with Gennady Golovkin.
