Jake Paul, Nate Diaz and Ben Askren exchange jabs on Twitter
Who got Jake Paul and Nate Diaz to argue about wrestling on your bingo board on Twitter?
On Tuesday, the YouTuber became a boxer and the fan-favorite UFC fighter got involved on Twitter about wrestling skills because apparently none of them had better things to do.
The whole thing started when Diaz commented on a BJ Penn story in which Ben Askren was quoted as saying that Paul was “kind of good” at boxing.Diaz then targeted Askren, who tweeted, “Coming from a retired wrestler who can’t fight or box.”

Paul was tagged in the tweet and tweeted Diaz’s easy quote, writing, “You have 6 times as many casualties as Ben Askren. Let that sink in.”
Diaz was not insulted and fired back with: “He sucks Jake. You would be smoked, well, real fight, but you can’t really fight boxing matches only with wrestlers. Let that affect you.”
Askren also got involved in the conversation and tweeted a challenge to Diaz.
“Nate is right, I suck at boxing. He sucks on MMA. If he wants me to prove it, I can be in the USADA pool tomorrow. Would be happy to be the last fight on his contract. “
The argument rages on when Paul tweeted that he was “Stockton’s” and Askren told a fan, “You’d have to be an idiot to think Nate would hit me in an MMA fight.”
