Nick Diaz has been seemingly missing from his younger brother’s upcoming bout against Jake Paul inside the boxing ring. Nick, who has been present in the lead-up and promotions of his brother’s previous UFC fights, has not been seen with Nate Diaz in the lead-up to his fight with Jake.
It has also made fans wonder if Nick Diaz will corner his brother Nate Diaz during the fight. Just hours before the fight, several fans took to social media, confused about Nick Diaz’s absence from the event. Only time will tell whether or not Nick Diaz will be present inside the arena during the fight.
Will Nick Diaz corner Nate Diaz during Jake Paul fight?
Nick Diaz will likely not corner Nate Diaz during his fight against Jake Paul. Even in the past, the elder Diaz has supported his brother from the sidelines, watching him from the cage side much like any other fan. He was present during Diaz’s last UFC appearance back at UFC 279, where the younger Diaz took on Tony Ferguson in the main event.
Yo anyone seen Nick Diaz ?? #PaulDiaz

He was also there during Nate’s fight against Leon Edwards, showing his support for his younger brother through the entire week leading up to the fight. During both, Nick played a role in Nate’s camp. However, it doesn’t seem to be the case this time around.
The Diaz Army General was missing during the promotional build-up, and fans aren’t sure if he will be there during the event. Nick’s absence during open workouts has also raised some eyebrows, and in what promises to be one of the biggest fights of Nate Diaz’s career, fans are certainly missing his elder brother, Nick Diaz’s presence.
Getting a good feeling we are going to witness chaos via the Nick Diaz army this evening #jakepaulvsnatediaz

Nate Diaz and Jake Paul will meet inside the boxing ring inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on August 5 in one of the biggest boxing bouts this year. Paul will enter the ring in the back of a split decision loss against Tommy Fury. Meanwhile, Diaz will make his professional boxing debut in what he explains as a “one and done” deal to fight Jake Paul in the boxing ring.
