Mike Perry believes that the winner of a potential fight between him and MMA veteran Nate Diaz should go on to fight internet sensation Jake Paul in a boxing match.

In an interview with Damon Martin for MMA Fighting, 'Platinum' said that a win over Diaz should earn him a shot at Paul or even Anderson Silva. 'The Spider' is sscheduled to compete against 'The Problem Child' on October 29.

"If me and Nate Diaz are both trying to get this Jake Paul fight, I honestly think that we should have a fight to see who deserves that fight if he can get past Silva. I mean, Silva, after the Jake Paul fight, if he wins and stuff, you know, I'm not trying to call him out... I want the fights that I deserve and that's whoever's the best is out there, that's doing big things and that's Nate Diaz and me and the winner of that should get the Jake Paul fight, or even the Anderson Silva fight, no disrespect to the GOAT."
