Sean O'Malley weighed in on the upcoming boxing bout between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz and shared his thoughts on whether the Stockton native's scar tissue will be an issue for him.

On a recent episode of The Bro'Malley Show, Sean O'Malley spoke about Nate Diaz's scar tissue, which has resulted in a number of large cuts during his UFC career. He mentioned that the scar tissue could be an issue because of the gloves and Paul's power:

"I mean, with that kinda sh*t, probably open up." [17:13 - 17:16]

Even though Sean O'Malley believes that Nate Diaz's scar tissue could likely open up, he noted that the fight could go either way. He mentioned that there is still a path to victory for the former UFC star, especially in boxing where he doesn't necessarily need to be more powerful to earn a TKO win, saying:

"Nate [Diaz] doesn't need necessarily power to finish Jake [Paul]. A lot of boxing, like, you could get TKO stoppages when they're up agains the ring covering up. You could just hitting him, you know what I mean? And Nate's gonna have a little pop, he's a little bigger, he's definitely gonna have some pop so it's not an easy fight for either guys." [17:18 - 17:34]

It will be interesting to see whether 'Sugar' is correct with his assessment and whether the scar tissue will factor in the result of Saturday's fight.
