His last fight was against Tony Ferguson in UFC 279 in September 2022, which he won by submission.
Let’s get into all the details of the Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz live fight, including a how-to for watching the fight online from anywhere in the world. If you’re in a country that isn’t showing the fight, you can use a VPN to get access. We recommend using our top VPN pick, ExpressVPN, and we’ll show you how to use it further down.
Where to Watch Jake Paul Fight Nate Diaz
Although the Paul vs Diaz boxing match is available to watch in many countries, your location will determine which service you can watch it on. With geoblocks in play, you might not be able to access it on your chosen service.
Geoblocks are in place to help streaming services and networks keep in line with copyright and distribution agreements. If a network is only allowed to show the fight in the U.S., it has to block users from outside the country from accessing it.
Thankfully, you can get around the blocks by using a virtual private network (VPN). All you have to do is connect to a server in the country where it’s available and, presto, you’re in. That’s because your true location is masked by the VPN, making the service think you’re physically in the country of the VPN server.
Which Streaming Services Have the Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz Fight?
In the U.S., you can watch the fight on ESPN+ PPV. That means you’ll need an ESPN+ subscription, which costs $9.99 per month or $99.99 annually, and then need to purchase the fight separately at $59.99.
DAZN PPV in the U.S. is offering a similar deal, with the fight costing $59.99. However, new subscribers can get their first month of DAZN for just 99 cents.
Luckily DAZN PPV is available globally (except for in restricted countries like China), and if you sign up for the service in a country other than the U.S., you can get the fight for a much cheaper deal.
For instance, U.K. viewers can get their first month of DAZN for 1 pound (roughly $1.25) and purchase the fight for 14.99 pounds (roughly $20). It’s even cheaper in some regions; for example, watching the fight in Brazil costs roughly the equivalent of $10.
You can also watch the fight with Fite.TV, which offers a free seven-day trial of its usual subscription and the Nate Diaz vs Jake Paul fight for $19.99, depending on the country. It’s available in many countries, but the best deal can be found in countries like Singapore, India and Vietnam.
The last option we found was PPV.com. The fight costs $59.99, so it is no cheaper than DAZN or ESPN+, but you don’t need a subscription to get it.
How to Watch Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz for Free
Unfortunately, there isn’t an official way to watch the Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz fight for free. It’s a pay-per-view fight, so even if the subscription service that has it offers a free trial, you’ll still need to pay for the actual fight.
Of course, you can scour the internet and social media for links to free streams of the fight, but they’re a pretty unreliable source. It’s usually someone recording their own screen, meaning not only do they not have the right to stream it, but there’s no telling if or when the stream will stop working. Plus, quality is usually poor, resulting in pixelated Minecraft-style fighters, lagging and freezing at crucial moments.
If you want to watch the main card in the best resolution without the risk of missing critical points, stick with a reputable source. If you need to use a VPN, you can reduce the cost of watching the fight by using a VPN’s money-back guarantee and getting a refund when you’re finished with it.
