Police Reportedly Issue Nate Diaz With Arrest Warrant As Jake Paul Fight In Doubt
Jake Paul’s upcoming fight against Nate Diaz is in doubt after the latter was allegedly issued an arrest warrant on the reported grounds of second-degree battery.
According to reports, the New Orleans Police Department has responded to a video showing the UFC star grabbing TikToker and Logan Paul look-alike Rodney Petersen in a chokehold, rendering him unconscious.
Diaz had been at a Misfits 6 event to support Chris Avila. However, he had allegedly been thrown out from the event for throwing a bottle.
With that being said, Diaz’s fight with Paul on August 6th, 2023, may not go ahead.

If that were to happen, then there is a potential opponent waiting in the wings. Step forward: KSI. The pair have long been touted as facing off against each other since KSI had beaten Jake’s brother, Logan Paul.
Not only that, but the winner will be declared as the ‘face of Misfits’ boxing. And by the looks of it, both Paul and KSI are keen to get it on.
Well, if that mean Jake won’t have an opponent in August…Then I’ll gladly come as the replacement after I KO Joe Fournier in May https://t.co/Yh93RwD2VU

Great. I accept you as the backup opponent. Fight is at 185. There are no rehydration clauses. Stay in shape and we will give you a call if needed. Thanks buddy for being so humble and committed. https://t.co/Mz5TD5R9FV
