Paul also extended his streak of victories over MMA fighters. Prior to this, he defeated Ben Askren via first-round knockout, Tyron Woodley via decision, and Anderson Silva via unanimous decision.
Diaz is hopeful to return to UFC, possibly for a trilogy fight against Conor McGregor. He said, “It’s tough. I wish I could do better and do better things… but it’s all good.”
