While Stockton’s Diaz isn’t keen on fighting for the PFL, O’Malley believes he could be made an offer he simply can’t refuse. ‘Suga’ doesn’t think the YouTuber-turned-boxer has much to lose if he takes on Diaz in his pro MMA debut.
“Nate vs. Jake in MMA, that actually is realistic at this point,” O’Malley said on his podcast. [Paul is] a businessman. He has what part equity or ownership in PFL now? Say you give Nate Diaz M, you do a million pay-per-views, a buy. 50 million, can be 60 million if it’s a buy. Pay Nate M, [Paul], you could pay yourself 10-15, whatever.
Sean O’Malley believes last weekend’s boxing headliner trumped the UFC’s.
“That’s a very profitable fight for the PFL,” O’Malley added. “Massive fight for the PFL.”‘The Problem Child’ collided with the UFC superstar last weekend in Dallas, Texas. After ten rounds of back-and-forth action, Paul and Diaz went the distance where Paul was awarded the unanimous decision victory on the scorecards.
