Masvidal – who in 2019 beat Diaz – has been linked with fighting Paul too.

But despite the rivalry, he admitted the American’s size, youth and activity gives him an edge heading into the bout.

Although Masvidal, 37, is actually backing veteran Diaz, 38, to win.

He told MMAJunkie: “It’s just the time of it. Jake’s obviously a lot younger than Nate. If Nate’s in his prime, I think he smokes Jake.

“But Nate’s been out of it for a while. I don’t know what kind of shape his lifestyle is like outside a serious training camp.

“He hasn’t been in a training camp in a while, so I don’t know. I think the odds are a lot on him.

“Jake’s been competing and Jake’s naturally a lot bigger, but all that being said, I think Nate just finds a way to tough-guy it out and just beat up Jake and break him down. I think Jake will run a lot.”

Paul, 26, suffered defeat for the first time in February, losing a split-decision in Saudi Arabia to Tommy Fury, 23.


A rematch was expected to follow but instead the social media sensation announced he will instead fight Diaz.

Meanwhile, Masivdal is now in retirement having hung up his gloves following defeat to Gilbert Burns, 36, his FOURTH in a row.
