Jake Paul says 'I've never seen anything like it' as he is told why Nate Diaz suddenly walked out of press conference | The Sun
JAKE PAUL was left stunned when Nate Diaz went AWOL during their pre-fight press conference.
The duo went face-to-face on Tuesday night for the first time since the announcement of their Dallas dust-up in August.
Former UFC star Diaz, 37, was far from impressed by the presser – which he branded a "sketch-ass and f****** rookie" gathering – and left the stage as the media fielded questions.
Host Ariel Helwani had to encourage the Stockton Slugger to return to his seat – but it wasn't long before he was off again.
Diaz left the stage for a second time to nip off to the toilet and eventually returned to take part in a face-off.
Paul, 26, was left baffled by Diaz's second departure, asking: "Is this man leaving?"

One remarked: "He focused on his bag not sum BS talk."
Another chimed in: "Jake is disappointed because Nate isn't sticking to the script!"
Diaz's clash with Paul will mark his professional boxing debut, which comes nearly a year after his UFC departure.
But social media sensation Paul plans to give the fan favourite a rude welcome to the sweet science.
He said: "This is a big fight, this is a fight that I wanted for a long time.
"He got out of his UFC contract and this is probably the biggest fight of the year only topping me versus Tommy [Fury].
"So I want to make big events, big fights happen and strike while the iron's hot.
"He was a free agent, let's run it, make it happen, settle the s*** talk and I'm ready for war.
