Where he ranks as a LW is not far off Melendez and his pay should have been based off that.
For anybody to say anything about "one night of work" is just laughable. Yeah lets just not consider their grueling 3 month training camps or the fact that they have to be extremely disciplined in their diets leading up to their fights-moreso than other sports. And it's not like they have to pay a bunch for their training camps and all of the high quality foods that a fighter should be eating (And I think most can agree that eating pretty healthy gets pretty damn expensive) lol nope, all that shit is covered by God himself...

I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

Diaz is not one of the best LW or WW fighters in the world, he has dropped loses to every top 10 fighter he has ever faced. He is a ignorant thug that needs to go back to school before back into the cage.
And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
Diaz brothers are good fighters but their IQ is smaller than their shoe size.
Seriously who beyond the age of 13 signs a contract because someone told them "Believe me, just sign it. We can renegotiate it later, but now sign!"?
How the fuck you can sign something you don't understand??
They want to receive 500,000 per fight. Who the fuck are them to ask that quantity of money??
What they have done to receive even the half of that money?
They train hard despite that they do not want to do it?? Well all fighters do that! Or you think that fighters love so much to train like animals every fucking day?
I bet that a lot of times they hate it and just want to quit.
Nick Diaz is like "I hate fighting, I don't like to get punched. So if you want me to fight, pay me 500,000".
Dana White should tell him to go fuck himself and fire him.
Imagine that tomorrow I will talk to my boss and tell him "You know what? I hate having to wake up at 7:30 in the morning. I hate working on sundays and saturday nights. I hate our conductor. So I want you to increase my payment 10 times. Otherwise, I am not working anymore!"
He would ask me if I am drunk or what kind of drugs I have been taking.
Diaz Brothers are like those latino Reggaetoneros that compose absolutely garbage "music", however they want to receive millions of dollars for that crap.
Diaz brothers do not have any solid arguments for asking that money. "Other fighters get more money than me". Well those other fighters are probably champions, or at least, they are highly ranked.
He should realize aswell that many fighters receive much less money than 60,000.
Dana should fire both of them.
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
The only thing a future prospect should take away from the Nate Diaz situation is to not hire any idiot manager and to actually take the time to read a contract and be willing to honor it and be happy about it before signing
i can feel for nate, but being as my job has alot to do with contracts, you got to read what you sign or anyone represenenting you sign. UFC has no obligation to pay him anymore than contracted. sure UFC makes a tonne of money, and is screwing over fighters, but from a business perspective, they are in the right.
if its the case that your manager mislead you, nate could sue him, but im not sure thats the case
UFC has no faith that
