Former UFC star Nate Diaz, who is expected to take on Jake Paul in a fight on August 5 in Dallas, Texas, was filmed smoking in his training camp. Paul will look forward to bouncing back from his last defeat against Tommy Fury. However, Diaz doesn’t seem to be bothered by his fight against Paul, as his video of smoking intoxicating substance during training has made it to several social media channels.
Diaz, who parted ways with UFC after his last fight against Khamzat Chimaev in September, last year, will be making his debut in the world of professional boxing with the forthcoming bout. The video comes a month after Paul was spotted with a cigarette in his mouth as he trained on a speed bag.

On the flip side Paul is working hard, as seen in his latest video, with his training partner Amanda Serrano throwing punches in his stomach. Speaking about the former YouTuber, Jake Paul, he is known for his wins over ex-MMA champions Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and Anderson Silva. Though the 26-year-old has gone to a limit of eight rounds, it will be the first time he will fight in a 10-round bout.
Diaz’s video has gone viral all-over social media, leaving his fans upset with the youngest Diaz brother. While some fans have questioned the legitimacy of the fight, others have claimed that the fight will be in favour of the former YouTube star.

Notably, the 10-round fight between Diaz and Paul is slated at the American Airlines Centre in Dallas, Texas.
