Jake Paul takes on former UFC star Nate Diaz in a 10-round cruiserweight bout (catchweight of 185 pounds) at American Airlines Center in Dallas on Saturday (ESPN+ PPV, 8 p.m. ET).

Paul (6-1, 4 KOs), 26, suffered a split-decision loss to Tommy Fury in his most recent fight in February.

Diaz is making his boxing debut. He’s a former UFC contender and one of the most entertaining fighters in the history of the promotion. During his UFC career, Diaz fought the top fighters available, including two fights against Conor McGregor, Tony Ferguson, Jorge Masvidal, Leon Edwards and Benson Henderson, among others.
