Nate Diaz has long spoken about wanting to make the big money in MMA that many of the top fighters in the UFC — such as his brother Nick Diaz — make per appearance inside the Octagon. During the build-up to his UFC On FOX 17 bout with Michael Johnson, Diaz created a bit of excitement for a potential fight that would guarantee him the type of payday he has long been seeking.
Diaz said the following to Helwani this weekend about a potential fight with McGregor:
“He don’t want that fight. You’re going to fight those guys who you punked at the press conference? You guys lost. I don’t know if people think about it like that. When I saw that, I was a fight fan. I’m not a fan anymore. I signed up for fighting to let you know I’m the motherf*cking … you know? What did you sign up for? I’m a fighter. You’re going to sit there and steal the show at my press conference? Then I’m going to step the f*ck up. Conor did a great job. He did a great job. That’s what you’re supposed to do. If he wants to come up and get the money fight, get the good fight … you know where that’s at.”
