    He made $15K/$15K for his fight with Grey. Yea, I'd be holding out for more money too.

    Mike Kogan: UFC turned down Khabib Nurmagomedov fight, not Nate Diaz

    Mike Kogan, who recently took over as manager for the outspoken Stockton slugger, today informed MMAmania.com that he was indeed presented with a fight against "The Eagle," but it was UFC -- not Team Diaz -- who had problems with the contract.

    "Nate has never turned down a fight against anyone," Kogan said. "There are conditions that we asked for that were turned down by the UFC, so the fight didn't happen."

    As Diaz so eloquently put it on his Twitter account, "F U PAY ME."

    FOX Sports has more:

    "We asked for Nate's contract to be redone. The UFC turned it down. We asked for a change to his contract, and changes to when the fight takes place. They said no and we said no thanks. This is supposed to be a professional sport, but then this resorts to these Twitter wars. This isn't a street fight, it's a professional sport. If it's a street fight and they want to see who the better man is they know where the fuck Nate is, and then we can see who is the better man."

    I'm a bit confused. It is my understanding that once you sign a contract, you fulfill your contract before you negotiate a new one. Does anyone know if there is a clause that allows you to demand new terms before the contract expires/is fulfilled?
    You have to know what you don't know.

    Is anyone else wondering whatever happened with the Gilbert Melendez idea?
    I thought that was pretty much set in stone.
    Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.

    It was DW who said it, so it is probably a lie anyway.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Meltzer was saying that Gil never signed the Khabib fight before it was announced and it sounded like it was pulled because Gil wanted too much money and that it could've easily been an excuse to not fight a dangerous, yet relatively unknown Khabib. Meltzer also says that ZUFFA offered Nate the Khabib fight after somebody else turned it down and that Nate's camp asked for too much money, which ZUFFA took as him turning down the fight, since asking for too much money is often a way fighters get out of fights they don't want.

    I'm thinking they ultimately book Khabib with Jim Miller if everybody else passes(since I don't think Jim Miller would turn down a fight, but who knows?).

    How do you think your Dad matches up with Khabib?

    Why can't Khabib and the rest of us just wait for the Henderson/Thompson fight to be over. He should fight the winner of that fight.

    Probably because he hasn't fought since September and has a family to support.
