(Video) Nate Diaz leaves Jake Paul speechless after walking out without saying a word

Combat Sports reporter Ariel Helwani recently shared a perplexing incident involving Nate Diaz and Jake Paul during a face-to-face encounter before their match. Diaz’s unexpected departure left Paul scratching his head, while fans were divided over its significance.

The footage captured Helwani hosting the event between Nate Diaz and Jake Paul, as they prepared for their upcoming bout. Paul took the opportunity to commend his opponent, acknowledging him as a formidable ‘warrior’ and discussing Diaz’s impressive MMA career.

However, Diaz seemed disinterested and aloof throughout the exchange. He avoided any eye contact with the popular influencer.

During the media session, Diaz appeared visibly agitated. He was displaying restlessness and looking in different directions.

Then without warning, he casually rose from his chair and exited the stage while Paul was still speaking. Both Helwani and Paul were left bewildered as Diaz calmly assured them that he would return shortly. Subsequently, footage revealed Diaz getting into a car and leaving the face-to-face entirely.

Fans quickly weighed in on the incident, with varying interpretations of Diaz’s behavior. Many believed it to be a classic display of Nate Diaz’s mind games, using disinterest as a tactic to face the controversial boxing influencer.

Sports reporter Wade Plem stated: “Welp.. This is classic Nate.”

A fan wrote: “Oh my god Nate is the best. This is the absolute best approach to the lead up to a Jake fight. Get your money, don’t do anything to help him get PPV points. God Bless Nate Diaz!”

Another user commented: “I know Jake’s gotta be sick with how little Nate’s selling the fight lmaoo.”

On the other hand, some expressed concern for Diaz’s mental state. It was that his actions may be linked to anxiety. Speculations arose about Diaz’s apparent discomfort in various settings, leading to discussions about possible anxiety-related issues.

Someone wrote: “Sadly this looks like it is anxiety.”

Another user stated: “Nate looked anxious with the hand gestures. The edibles hit too hard.”

A third user wrote: “Nate always looks uncomfortable in any setting, you’d think somebody is out to get him here.”

As of now, Nate Diaz has not provided an official explanation for his abrupt departure from the event. Despite the unusual encounter, the much-anticipated showdown between Nate Diaz and Jake Paul is set to take place on August 5 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
