After injury in the form of a second round knockout to Jake Paul, Nate Robinson faced the ignominy of insult from Stephen Curry.
Many gave Nate Robinson the edge ahead of his exhibition MMA fight against YouTuber Jake Paul. The 23-year-old is taller and has the better reach, but people saw Nate’s football background as an edge. Things didn’t turn out quite according to that script in the ring, however.

The banter between the duo should be all in good spirits. Nate Robinson knows his strengths, weaknesses and abilities as a fighter. While he wouldn’t have bet against himself ahead of the fight, he definitely shouldn’t have illusions about his true level now.
