UFC President Dana White has finally reacted to this weekend’s Jake Paul-Nate Diaz fight.

On Tuesday night, White met with the media after the first episode of this season’s Dana White Contender series and was asked about his thoughts on the fight between Diaz and Paul that resulted in the former UFC fighter losing via unanimous decision against the social media star turned boxer.

White was very complimentary of Diaz’s performance, noting that the former UFC fighter fared the best against Paul despite being nearly 40 years old and fighting at a different weight class.

“For a kid pushing forty years old, fighting a guy four weight classes bigger than him in boxing and two in MMA, and going the distance against a 20 something year old kid, so far he’s fared the best out of everybody. He looked good. I’m happy for him.”

White was also asked about Diaz wanting to return to the UFC after his fight against Paul.

“This will always be Nate’s house, Nate grew up here, came in on the Ultimate Fighter, he fought some of the biggest fights ever here, and we love the kid. I don’t know about fighting in the future, but this is always going to be his house, and you know we’ll see.”
