Video: McGregor Says He’ll “Breeze Past” $10 Million Mark At UFC 196, Diaz Walks Off


Another joint interview between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz on Friday didn’t go as “smoothly” as this one did.

“Woooo! I’ll take over from here Nate, you can bounce!” is how the live via satellite split-screen interview between the two started off after “The Notorious” one was told by the host of the program that they would be talking about money since they were on CNBC.

From there, things only went downhill.

After some early business talk, the UFC Featherweight Champion spoke about “breezing past” the ten million dollar mark at UFC 196 on Saturday.

For his part, Diaz wouldn’t disclose his salary. He wouldn’t reveal much of anything, actually.

A visibly hostile and/or uninterested Diaz wouldn’t divulge much information at all and remained pretty short with his responses. So, when he got annoyed to the point that he took his microphone off and stood up and walked out on the interview before it was over, by that point, it certainly didn’t come as a surprise.

Diaz will be walking out to the Octagon to fight UFC Featherweight Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 196 later this evening from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
