Jake Paul rides a TANK into the arena ahead of fight against Nate Diaz in Dallas
The 26-year-old posed for the cameras sitting on top of the vehicle as it drove through the bowels of the arena in Texas, before being helped down by security.
Paul heads into the bout fresh off a defeat by Tommy Fury last time out, but is looking to return to winning ways in his eighth professional fight.
Before his loss to Fury, Paul – who rose to fame as a social media influencer – was undefeated as a fighter, beating a host of UFC stars including Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva.
On Saturday night, one of the fans hoping Paul adds another defeat to his resume is Canadian rapper Drake, who has dropped $250,000 on Diaz to win the bout.

Drake lost $400k betting on Paul in February, and this time his allegiance is with Diaz.
The rapper, who’s become notorious for his high-stakes sports bets, shared a bet slip on his Instagram story that showed he had risked $250k to win $1million on Diaz defeating Paul.
‘Jake is a dog but I can never bet against a Diaz brother that’s just how I was raised,’ he captioned the photo.
The Canadian chart-topper predicted Paul to beat Tommy Paul in the winter but proved to be incorrect.
Paul apologized after that fight for costing Drake a hefty sum but jokingly blamed the rapper for his loss in the ring.
